They are FULLRIVER 224 AGMs. Brian also recommended them over Trojans due to the warranty and the luck he has had with Trojans lately.

I would highly recommend that you contact Brain with any questions you have about solar. He has the blog I mentioned (https://gotsolarinstalled.blogspot.com) and can be found on FB (Brian Boone). I can't stress enough how much he helped me in the planning and finally the installation of my solar unit. Even if you don't have him do the install he is more than willing to help with advice and answers. I had him do all the work and Im glad he did. Brian took no short cuts and was good about explaining all that he did to the totally ignorant (me).

We are now planning to add two more batteries to the bank, to make a total of eight. It might be a little overkill but I wont have to worry about going a couple of days without sun and may never run my generator again.
