RV Solar 101: Batteries
AGM batteries offer many advantages to the RVer. They are sealed, do not spill or vent gas, and require no maintenance. AGM batteries also charge quickly and are more resistant to low temperatures. They are, however, sensitive to overcharging and require the use of a charge controller as a preventative measure.
Gel batteries are also sealed and don’t spill, but they are much slower to charge than their AGM counterparts. Based on older technology, they also require a charge controller compatible with Gel batteries.
Lithium batteries. The third option not mentioned above is lithium batteries. They provide high performance and efficient charging in a low-weight package. They are safe, require no maintenance, and offer a long life-cycle. The drawback to lithium batteries is cost—these batteries come with a high price tag.

Buying battery tips
- For most off-grid applications, high-quality AGM batteries are preferred since they strike the best balance between performance and price.
- Lead-acid batteries cost less up front. They also need to be maintained to keep them running at peak performance, and have a shorter lifespan.
- Lithium batteries are more expensive up front. However, they are higher efficiency, maintenance-free, and have a longer lifespan.
- Be sure to check out the manufacturer’s battery warranty and ask about their service and support capabilities.
