Can you provide a model number and price on those batteries and also where they were purchased.We ended up replacing our Trojan batteries with US Batteries, industrial size. One batter equals 2 of the trojans. Bought 18, the equivalent of 36 regular ones. So far we are very pleased with energy enough to function 24 hours. We have 3 refrigerators and a freezer, in addition to all the fans, lights, and electronics needed for a largish house and casita. The pool pump is also solar, but we have a backup electric pool pump, too, which we have been using because our water turned green when we had all those rains a few weeks ago. The only thing connected to street power is the bedroom air conditioners.
Time will tell if this is a good buy. I understand that several large businesses and factories in Santiago and Moca are using these batteries. Have seen photos.
But so far, so good.
When I spoke to US Battery, they told me their Trojan equivalent models was not as good a choice for the DR because they were what is called electrolyte starved batteries and have a limited lifetime in warm environments, but your batteries are a different style. They sound like a 12 volt deep cycle, but it would be interesting to see the details.
