    I want to run a security night light & plug in my automatic gate transformer in part of my property were I have no power.Will be setting up a combo of wind & solar to charge the battery bank.Any reccomendations on an inverter, number of watts, modified or pure sine wave,brand perhaps,also what would be a minimum # of batteries i would need.Am looking at enersys genesis series batteries & was told most people get at least 6.Whilst I realize you would need to know the wattage of each application ,was wondering if there is general rule of thumb,when figuring out a system.Thanks in advance.Ian

    These two items seem like they would not use much energy at all. You could probably get away with one or two batteries. But this of course depends on how many watts these items use and how often you will use them.

    I think a modified sine wave inverter (much cheaper than a pure sine wave) will be just fine.

    What kind of deep cycle batteries(AGM/gel/flooded etc) and make good for wind/solar powers ? I am looking for maintenance free (+ explosive free) batteries.
