    I'm convinced now, you get what you pay for in batteries. The COSTCO Kirkland are very good. Their Marine 24's we use in the RV and boat for some reason, don't seem to need to be topped off with water all the time. They really hold a strong charge for a long while too. Warranty replacment at...
