Just letting everyone know there are many illegitimate sellers online cheating on high capacity AGM and Li-Po deep cycle batteries.
Often the capacities stated don't match the weight,size or stated in a 20Hr discharge instead of 10Hr.
Capacities are stated in Amps instead of Amp hours.
Delivered batteries have no brand or labelling on them and do not match the advertisement,not to mention they may not meet Australian standards of safety.
The price is too good to be true,at the moment some Lipo batteries selling at half the going rate a clear indication of a scam.
Weights of sealed lead acid AGM should be approx;
100-120Ah 30-35kg
150-170Ah 40-45kg
250-270ah 70-75kg
The other issue is sellers don't have stock and you may end up waiting weeks until their orders come in.
