Hi All,

I am looking for the largest standard size battery that i can fit into the normal black battery box from any Autoparts store.

The battery is to go on a camper trailer and of the deep cycle style. My current battery is a 75AMP hour battery and i would like to run a larger one if i can source one.

Any info on brands and sizes and where i can get one would be hugely appreciated.

I am located in Melbourne.

Thanks

Mark

Mark, I have a 115 amp hour battery from Trojan that would probably fit in the standard battery box but believe it has now been superseded with a larger capacity in the same case. Have a look at their web site, check the dimensions then give the Ozi distributor a call to check availability. They aren't cheap but are one of the best.
Trojan batteries

You can still get the 115ah but the 130ah is the same case size

Hey Mark,
How long are those boxes? If they are only 300mm then the largest capacity deep cycle will be about 100AH. I got one from Ariel batteries in Clifton Hill although I think Autobahn have them. About $135. Going well.

Thanks for the responses guys, will go and check them out shortly. Might take the battery box with me as the box fits into a metal cradles and unless i want to start welding it has to fit in the box so better to be safe than sorry as they say.

Why does it have to be a 'Battery Box" My Trojan is in a well ventilated tool box. Purchased from SCAP and modified to suit

Only reasonm it has to be a battery box is that the exisitng battery is already in a battery box and the tray that the box sits on is made to the size of the box.

If i alter the size of the box i have to start altering the tray size and that means cutting metal and weldign which i was hoping not to do.

I figured if i can source a 100 -130 AMP hour battery that fits i have added somewhere between 30% to 90% capacity to what i currently have with minimal fuss and bother and that would be a good outcome.

If ir eally needed to i could also take the old battery away as a back up if i thgought i was gogin for a long time, i wish.

Hi OMN,

I had a 75 AH battery on the camper trailer until last Christmas. I replaced it with a 115 AH Trojan. The Trojan fits into a standard battery box replacing my old battery without any problems.

Cheers

Steve
