It is important to purchase the solar battery wisely only then solar panel system will run efficiently and smoothly. There are several batteries available that are used in solar panel system. Some people prefer to purchase AGM solar batteries because they charge quickly with low voltage and acid leaks will not occur and low maintenance is required. AGM stands for absorbent glass mat and they can handle high temperature efficiently. They are also capable of lower self discharge so all these qualities must be considered while making the purchase of battery.
Lithium batteries are also getting very popular these days, they do not require any maintenance and lifetime of these batteries is also longer. These batteries are recyclable and do not contain any toxic material. So, it is better to purchase this type of battery over any other battery.
