Hi Seaskimmer,

JW has a good point you will probably need a charger :

Ref :LL30H 12V 350mA SLA Crgr 12.99

Which will be ok for batteries 1.4Ah-9Ah.

As far as will it suit your needs you need to work out how often you will generally use it and for how long ?

If 10Hrs at one time seems about right I would be inclined to try the 1.3Ah because it reallt is dirt cheap
MM22Y 12V 1.3Ah SLA 4.99

And if you find it runs out too quickly you could get another one and connect it in parallel to give you double your battery life. Alternatively you could go for one these :
L53AC 12V 4.2Ah SLA 17.99
MM23A 12V 2.2Ah SLA 11.99
MM24B 12V 3.3Ah SLA 14.99
MM26D 12V 7.2Ah SLA 19.99

Ah Battery Life @ 130mA (Hours)
1.3 10
2.2 16.92307692
3.3 25.38461538
4.2 32.30769231
7.2 55.38461538

Cheers

Phil
