"Up to 5000 cycles" At what state of discharge?

Further down it says 2000 cycles to 80%.

Soo 2000 cycles,  about 5.4 years worth of being run down  to 80% daily .. For about $600 bucks sounds alright . 8)

I'm sat in our static caravan at the moment (off grid). Power is solar fed into two 120 amp hour lead acid batteries that can only drop to 50% for about 300 cycles.

Those Lithium batteries look like a bargain to me. Especially with the built in BMS.

Went through their website and a huge amount of gear is listed as "out of stock".  Seems very strange.

It will be interesting to see if more “disappears” before the sale. Got my eye on ordering some Supapegs.

Anaconda has the Oztrail 80l fridge freezer for $599, down from $799, not sure of the quality but a good starting point for someone in the market. Oztrail site shows an average draw of less than 1amp hour. Can be set up as fridge freezer, freezer freezer or fridge fridge.

Yeah not sure what the go was, perhaps miss management as well. Every time I went past there they were busy. I went in there recently to buy a rhino rack part and there were at least 5 other people in there buying stuff. And that was a random weekday afternoon.

Perhaps it wasn’t miss management but rather not managed very well by the missus!

Are you suggesting it might have been a time management issue?

Too much time spent in someone else's bed???

No not at all Pete, but rather the case of a business where while one partner was doing what he did best, that being bolting bull bars on the front of 4wds, the other partner was tasked with paying the bills and the general business etc but wasn’t on top of that task. Probably a simplification of the problem but it was how they operated like many husband and wife businesses.

Sad for all, Scott had been in the game for many years originally working for Slav who set up and owned the 4wd Mega Store chain, before setting up on his own  at site of the original mega store location in Penrith.
I certainly had bought a bit of gear of them when I lived down south mainly for my last vehicle.

Always the way it happens ...Find a bargain / good price and buy it, then bingo the same item pops up even cheaper ..Paid $182 on extra discount from Sunyee for the 3 x 3 m awning,  then this pops up with extra discount for $170 ..still good prices for both though .
