Our Products & Services

Forbes sells an extensive range batteries for any need including but not limited to: electronic devices, vehicles (motorcycles, cars, trucks, caravans), deep cycle, off grid solar and dual battery systems. We also sell power products and accessories such as battery chargers, inverters, cables, plug, sockets and much more. Batteries are our specialty and we pride ourselves on not only selling the best products based on a customer's requirements (e.g. budget, power, life-cycle) but also informing one on how to best use and maintain their battery. We're not here to rush you into a sale, instead, we want to ensure you know what you're buying and why we believe it's the best option.

Recently, we have ventured into the exciting enterprise of solar energy and have a steadily growing inventory of solar packages, batteries, inverters, controllers, panels and installation accessories. A significant portion of our solar inventory is sourced from Victron Energy as we trust in the quality of their products and, as a result, have entered into Victron dealership. Solar technology is constantly being developed and refined so it can be difficult to grasp at first, fortunately, we have experts who can elaborate on any solar related questions and explain how to extract the most value out of their system.

Our phones and communications department is proudly partnered with Telstra and is committed to offering the best advice on which: phone, tablet, internet device, car kit, antenna, UHF or accessory for you to invest in.
