Poor man pays twice
Don't be a fool like I was, don't be lured by the price. If you want proper batteries you need to pay proper money. If you get more than 18 months out of these batteries I would be surprised. Warranty, non existent. "Poor man pays twice." The reason I gave one star is because there is nothing smaller.
Don't Go near this mob
I was the same 3 years ago 5 star when I bought my off grid package.15 months later batteries were crap yes I paid the pro rata warranty. 15 months later they died again so I rang up expecting to pay Pro Rata again but they ignored me. In the end I went and bought a unit being a victron system. Best thing I did rather then trying to waste money on crap. Ask your solar guy what they Think of Giant before you buy one.
Poor quality and did not want to know me when it come to warranty
I brought a $25000 standalone solar system at the start they acted like the best company very professional the website looks the part but as soon as my inverter failed and allowed my batteries to over charge causing them to swell to a dangerous level and about to explode they didn’t want to know me I went to consumer protection and the just ignored them and they have done a similar thing too other people and have traded under different company names it’s probably all good if you’re only buying a $200 battery of them but I wouldn’t give them the light of day the company owner is a terrible Don’t buy from them if you’re spending more than chump change

I smell a RAT
Not sure what incentives were offered & I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't follow through, however it's interesting that the most recent replies are over a year since Aussie Batteries shut shop and rorted their customers along with them. Lower thana worms belt buckle.
Danger! Rubbish Rubbish Rubbish! Beware!! An expensive mistake!
Aussie Batteries and Solar sell rubbish! I purchased a system based on their design and it never worked properly, EVER! They were quick to respond rite up until they got my money. That's when they started to avoid responding. Many attempts at contact were never responded to. minimum 8 to 10 emails to get any response at all. to be fair they did (all be it very slowly) honer their warranty but after 5 replacement batteries and 2 inverter panels i had, had enough. i escalated my complaints to the manager and even after confirming that the manager...had received 5 of my emails, i still got no response what so ever. I had to sue through the small claims tribunal and this scumbag company denied that i was even a customer!! I won outright and even then they dragged their heels and only contacted me when it suited them. Do not use aussie batteries and solar. Allan Davis Melbourne
Rubbish battery. [Useful items for you: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4iprs1zrdj85q4b/Sample%20Application%20and%20tips.zip?dl=0] Died less than 2 years old. Then they refused refund. Tried to charge me nearly $80 to replace my less than 2 year old $284 Deep Cycle Battery. Even now, still have not got refund, even though I am entitled to a full refund for a Major Fault under Australian Consumer Law. Do not buy from them. If you have a dead battery, do not rely on their stupid pro rata warranty, and rely on your rights under Australian Consumer Law ...for a full refund. Call Fair Trading and Google rights for refund. You are likely to have to commence proceedings in Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal to get it. Ask around, these are rubbish batteries and Battery World are testing loads of them after they fail.
