Battery did not arrive fully charged (12.4V) I don't know whether this is deliberate storage for this type of battery, Fine after charge with CTEK (13V). Good advice offered by Tayna staff pointing me at AGM initially and then this specifc Exide model when the similar Varta I had selected was not in stock. I have installed in car which gets left for long periods so parasitic draw damages standard flooded starter batteries. As usual with batteries time will tell.
Delivered to France within 48 hours, this battery works as advertised. Let's see its aging in the future
