We used LiFePO4 batteries. See the above and below posted script, detailing how the project changed and was improved upon.

Whern I bought my Lithium Iron Phosphate batts this last winter, I opted to get SOK Batteries 12V 206AH, which have a BMS including charge protection below freezing, and have a 7 year warranty. I liked the metal cases, and how they were designed to be repairable, you can open them up and replace the BMS or individual battery cells, and per several online reviewers, all teh components inside were top shelf. I paid $1100 per 206AH battery, which seemed fair. The two of them give me 5260 watt*hours of usable power. I have yet to run them below 50% discharge, but they are good for 1000s of cycles to 0% each time. 3 full days and nights of camping in hot weather with zero sun and running our compressor fridge brought them down to 50%, 1.5 days of sunshine fully recharged them (360W monocrystalline solar panel with a MPPT controller).
