Battery Comparison

We have created a battery comparison chart to help you decide what type of batteries you should use.  The chart below shows various battery banks using different types of batteries, and give you a estimate of the amount of usable Kwhrs storage you will get.  We then look at the cost and number of years the battery should last in daily use.  We have taken the lower estimates of years on all batteries, and then look at the cost per Kwhr and cost per Kwhr per year.

We hope this chart will be useful to guide people in the choice of the batteries to use.
