Lead Acid Batteries

SunnyCal maintains a few select lead acid batteries.  The primary application for which lead acid batteries are well suited is bulk storage, where routine maintenance is available, and low cost is a primary concern.  Lead acid batteries are often the default solution low budget systems. The life-cycle of common lead acid batteries is generally between 500 and 2000 charge/discharge cycles.

Do not undersize your battery bank!
