Another post of this site referred to a battery which is effectively 2 batteries in one. Does anyone know what brand of batteries this is and whether it is a possibility for a second battery under the bonnet where there is limited space?

Thanks Ray - a very interesting product. Do you know anyone that has installed one of these batteries to use for a fridge? The website refers to the accessory battery as "designed to provide low to medium currents to the vehicles accessories". I just wonder whether that means it would not be strong enough for a fridge. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

G'day Rowena
I rang the local off road place where I came across the battery - it's called a DMS battery and apparently comes from NZ?

Unfortunately it seems the importer has gone belly up - but the local bloke here has two batteries that he wants to get rid of (a larger one and a smaller one?) - I'm not sure if they will do your job though. Apparently the original retail price was quite expensive ($500-$600) - but the good thing is the price is now "negotiable".

Let me know if you are interested and I'll pass you the details.

Troopie - thanks very much for the hot tip but I don't think that the battery is the type that we need from having looked it further and discussing it with people more knowledgable than I :-)
Cheers, Rowena

If you mean by "two batteries in one" a conventional starter and a deep cycle type then this link may help.

Very powerful for their size/weight, but expensive $200-400!
