Really quick delivery.

When arrived I noticed the delivery driver carrying the battery upside down despite the clear markings on the box indicating the correct way up!!! It was packed very well with all the plugs tapped up. It was a pity that the the drain wasn't tapped as well as there was some leakage into the inner wrapping. It was however well packed. I had to top up one of the cells with distilled water as it was low. Put on charge (took about 16 hours on slow charger) and already now for use. Service from Tanya has been good and quick delivery. Thought that the battery would have come with a drain pipe. I would have purchased one if I had known it did not come with one.

Bought a pair of these a couple of weeks ago to replace some Banner ones. One of the Banner ones had failed seriously after two years and as a result of dragging down the voltage had probably damaged the other one. This may have been due to my leaving them on charge all the time and the fact that they had not been topped up. I didn't realise that the motorhome manufacturer's annual service didn't include checking the battery electrolyte level. I bought the Exides because they are NCC Class A rather than the Banners Class B. I've now installed a permanently on voltmeter and I've left off the mains charger, relying on just the solar panel. I'll also check the electrolyte level regularly. I obviously can't comment on lifetime performance, but I've knocked off one star because they arrived rather damp inside all the packaging, the end cells' electrolyte was slightly lower than the others and I suspect that they had leaked in transit. I hosed them down with plenty of water before handling them again. They charged OK and appear to be working fine.
