Selecting the right type, right size, and right number of solar batteries comes loaded with several options.
A solar battery should last at least five years. Many last considerably longer with the right care.
Several parameters influence the choice of the right battery type for solar . The main points to consider are technical performance, cost, and dependability
Batteries are a bit like people in the sense of stamina. They get tired sooner under hot conditions, and they do not necessarily recover fully after repeated bouts of exhaustion.
Lead-acid batteries must have full charge before we store them, and we should top them up every six months when not in use. This needs a degree of self-discipline
