You won't get much more than a day with a 44ah battery in the warmer weather.

Maybe a Kings 98ah link
I have one in Kings battery box and solar Kings solar link
This setup will run very efficiently with a small amount of sun, ive used mine on Solar for a week with no other charging and it was still fully charged every day with a 60l fridge and some led lights and recharging devices.

Coupla days maybe on and off.
Not totally off grid though
nahh, 44 wont last half a day with fridge draw trying pending on climate.... you need atleast 120 and just grab a cheap batt box to hook up to. Ebay, aldi etc always have em on sale. Then a light weight foldable solar panel with a decent invertor

^^^^^^^^thats kinda what you are after agm batt, batt box and panels... i like the lightweight panels..easy to carry and easy to store. Those alu frame ones are a bit heavy.
i want to move to li ion batts next year but damn they are still expensive....

I put a 120AH AGM from Positive Batteries Cairns into a Kings Box. Battery was $260, I think they sell the Kings boxes for around $60. They have the 20A Projecta DCDC Chargers with MPPT solar input there as well for about $300 so you can hook this up to your car as well as a solar panel. Not sure what panels they have there but their prices seem pretty good.
