The optimum working temperature range of deep cycled lead acid solar battery was studied.  A 4- different model of deep cycled Lead acid battery of 12V, 100amp-hr was used along 250 Watts monocrystalline silicon solar panel. A digital multimeter, charge controller, 250 Watts incandescent bulb (load), inverter and a digital thermometer were employed in the study. The experimental set-up was done in the environ of University of Port-Harcourt (Latitude 4055’58’’N and Longitude 6059’55’’East), Rivers State, Nigeria (tropical climate region). The measured voltage and temperature during charging and discharging processes consequently determine the charging and discharging efficiency of the battery. Through this, the optimum working temperature range of the considered Lead Acid battery falls within 29OC and 37OC.
