Deep Cycle Batteries

Batteries to Suit Gold Prospecting

Gold Rat have Partnered with Sealed Performance Batteries to provide an end to end solution for our full range of prospecting equipment, and to keep you powered up when out and about in the bush.

We have been using  and recommending PowerSonic Batteries for over 6 years so it makes sense to partner with a company that supplies a brand we trust, not only that Sealed Performance Batteries are 100% Australian owned and are local to Gold rat Headquarters which means if a battery isn't in stock we can have it here for you next business day.

The range will grow but we will focus on the main 4 sizes that suit our equipment, if there is a larger amp hour requirement contact us for a quote with your needs.
