    Battery recommendations have been asked and answered recently in multiple threads.

    My recommendation is the factory sealed AGM made by Deka, also sold under a number of other brand names. The Deka made AGM all have a distinctive red plastic battery post cap with two screws and two brass spacer rings.

    My preference is the exact opposite. I highly dislike handling battery acid. And I see no need to mess about with acid bottles, since the factory sealed Deka AGM batteries work so well.

    The Deka AGM batteries should have a date code sticker, which can be decoded.

    That said, the factory sealed Deka AGM batteries have an excellent shelf life. So even a year old example is still in excellent shape.

    The whole "adding acid to activate the battery" thing existed due to the terrible lifespans of traditional liquid filled lead-acid batteries. Even three months sitting with liquid inside would degrade a traditional battery. AGM batteries are not like that.

    I consider the Deka AGM battery to be a premium battery, yet the price is only modestly higher than lower quality batteries.

    Odyssey AGM is OK, but no Deka AGM available from the GH store
