Hey folks. I'm getting ready to rebuild my house bank, which consisted of 2x 4D 12v batteries. I will also be adding a pair of 110w solar panels and an MPPT solar controller to the mix as well. I was considering using 4x 6v batteries, wired in series/parallel. My chief motivation for this would be ease of handling, the 4Ds weigh in at 115# each, the 6v weigh half that. The downside is they cost twice as much!
Has anyone used 6v batteries? I have yet to find any that are made specifically for marine use, they tend to be for golf cart and RV. Wondering what your recomendations are....
