$700 is a great price. Last spring I purchased a 170ah Renogy from Walmart for $980. This would be the equivalent of $605 for 105ah. I think Walmart screwed up because shortly after my purchase the price went up to $1400. So far the Renogy is working great.

Here's a link to a YouTube post by Will Prowse:

He reviews the UT1200 which has slightly less capacity. The review is mostly positive.

Will Prowse is a great resource for anything lithium.

Thanks for input. I eventually want to upgrade to Lithium.
And the great link. What is his favorite battery? Is it BattleBorn?

I've only watched a few of his posts so I don't know what his favorite is. I'll leave that job for you.

Thanks...
If you ever see a deal again like what you got on your battery, please let us know.

I have been on the road now for 2 months, but headed home tommorow.
The "corona virus" is having some effect on my travels/ places to stay.
I still have not seen 1 other Born Free. But the RV traffic seems robust in CA/ OR.
