The straight T105 are  R73/Ah and the REs are marginally more expensive at R81/Ah. If you are connected to the grid then 225Ah is more than sufficient. IN my own off-grid situation I would want 400Ah + battery bank and under those circumstances the 105 REs are better value than the T125s or T145s. Remember these are vented LA and you need to have good ventilation for them. I have seen in colder parts of the US a sealed battery box containg vented batteries with an inclined lid to collect the hydrogen and a vent to the outside.

There are a myriad of videos on Youtube. Have a look and report back.
