Q&A Which batteries should I use
 
To store your solar energy, you need good solar batteries. AGM/High Discharge deep cycle batteries are ideal for smaller setups, or shorter periods of time that you are disconnected from the grid. If you want to live completely independent from mains power, you’ll need batteries that can store large amounts of energy and last for a longer time (e.g. 15 years versus 5 years for AGM). Tubular gel batteries are ideal for these long term systems.
