The most common type of solar panel battery is called a lead-acid (LA) battery. This is because it uses lead plates as its electrolyte and water as its solution and you can go here https://goforsolar.pk/product-category/solar-inverters/ to buy best solar inverter. These batteries can be used with both flooded and open-top circuit designs.
