Possible equivalents are US Batteries.

 

I have 4 of the Trojan T-125s ( T-105s are similar) which were fitted around April 2009. I only lightly discharge them ( 20%) and they are always replenished fully within 12 hours, so not much of a test, but have been faultless since installation. They live on shorepower via a Victron 12/3000/120, which is on float most of the time... It does go to bulk, then float periodically, usually when I am working on the boat. These are 6V 240 Ah units and I have four, configured as 12V 480 Ah.

Alternative would be Rolls Batteries.

 

I use 4 x6 volt to give 24v. Rolls Series 4000 S-600 6 volt. 450amps @ 20 hour rate.

 

Been using them for over a year, no measurable change in SG, performance, etc.

I use them, 4 in series as I have 24 volts as well as hydraulic drive and I am not going to defend the choice of voltage. I also keep mine as fully charged as possible by boating for around 4 hrs+ a day and then solar panels when left on the moorings
