As you may have seen in a previous post my NUMAX battery has died after 2 years and 4 month. Are these batteries actually worth buying as I have two acquaintances who both have had their NUMAX batteries die prematurely. Coincidently all three of us have Explorer Group Compass vans, could it be that the charger that they fit (which will probably be the cheapest of the cheap) could be wrecking our batteries.

Hi john, I am in the process of changing my 2 leisure batteries which have given up the ghost after 5 years of hard use!, no surprise then that I'm replacing them with exactly the same size and make. both are Elecsol 110 's, I could have had cheaper, but these have a 5 yr g'tee and need to fit into a tight underfloor space,hope this helps with yoyr decision, Cheers dave

I had a small boat for a number of years and it had bank 3 x 110 AHr batteries and over the piece I experimented with a number of different types, as did friends in the marina.
Our conclusion was that the " cheap and cheerful" leisure battery represented the best value but whatever the battery, a good multi-stage charger was essential as was the need to ensure that they were never left unused for any length of time less that half charged.
I gave the boat up when it dawned on me that the old saying about owning a boat being like standing in a cold shower tearing up £50 notes was too true to be funny Shocked

I have used Numax batteries in the past and not had any problems with them.

I think you should look closely and compare at the spec on each battery type, particularly the recycle data. This will give an indication on how long its likely to last.

Another way of looking at it may be:-

If a Numax 110 costs £55 and lasts 2 and a half years and an Elecosol 110 costs £100 and lasts 5 years - which gives best value?

Hi.

I would expect to get more than 2 years life out of the cheapest batteries.

The ones in our Burstner are 5 years & 7 months old, and still hold a good charge. I expect they will now die very soon now.

I have had many years service out of Numax. But I have a solar panel so they are always being topped up. The usual killer of leisure batteries is to allow them to discharge below about 50% thats why solar panels make such sense.
