Hi I know there’s boat people that use this forum so I’m after advice, I’ve got a chance of an Albion battery hopefully pic attached bought in October for a boat paid 129.99, told boat needed 4 and wanted all the same but couldn’t get others, offered it for £50 might knock them down, I’ve no idea of this battery type, is it ok for my bailey Rimini and will it be ok to charge with solar panel that’s already on van, guaranteed till Oct 22 so does it sound ok to any one?B8AB3233-FA13-41F5-A246-CD9513AC4239.png

Just looks like a 120 amp leisure battery to me. Looking on the Albion site, it says it’s fine. But it may be too large and heavy.

See here.

It says.

“Description
Albion XV35MF 12V battery suitable for general purpose marine / leisure applications, as well as engine starting. This 120Ah deep cycle battery is maintenance-free, no maintenance is required for the electrolyte levels.”

As JCL suggests the type of battery should be fine, its whether it will fit inside your battery box, and being a marine specification it may weigh more than a more conventional caravan leisure battery. Check its specifications for size and weight.

Yes check the dimensions of your battery box and that of the battery. If it fits it should be fine but it may be heavy. I would assume the weight will be on the Albion web site though. Leisure batteries should be 25 Kg to 30 kg at 110 ah. That one says 120 so may be a bit bigger.
