What types of batteries do I need for my Solar System and can I recharge them?

John from Brampton recently emailed this question to us.

When using a Solar Panel to run appliances on a regular basis, we recommend the
use of deep cycle batteries which are designed to withstand frequent charge and discharges.
We sell several types of deep cycle batteries for use with Solar Panels including Sun Xtender “AGM” (Absorbed Glass Mat) Solar Batteries and U.S. Battery (Golf Cart Batteries). These batteries are designed to be recharged on a regular basis and are the best battery for use in Solar Applications.
