The Battery Shop Tasmania has a range of solar batteries and deep cycle batteries in stock to meet your energy needs. Whether you’re powering a mobile home or RV, managing an off-grid solar power system or lighting up a sailboat, we can fit the deep cycle battery that’s right for you.

Deep cycle batteries can be used in ways that would make other batteries go flat. In fact, they are designed to be discharged and recharged many times.
Cranking batteries (used in starter motors etc.) provide large bursts of power quickly. They can’t cope with being deeply discharged. For example, if you leave your car lights on and get a flat, the battery will never fully recover.
Deep cycle batteries, on the other hand, are designed to provide power at a steady rate over a long period of time. They are not damaged by deep discharge and are ideal for running things like lights, autopilots, fridges and fans.
