    Yes for sure, I have 2 leisure batteries in the back. Definately worth sorting out especially when you get working more and the pumps working more.

    Yep sound advice. Dead easy and cheap (sub £20 for split and battery's can be had for £60)

    I use a leisure battery and had it set up via a split relay, but there was a fault with the unit and I was left with a flat.

    Now I just bring in the battery and put it on a trickle charge every night. If I were to forget the battery has enough power for about three days, so I'm not worried.
    It works for me.
