After asking folks advice on equalizing my eight year old Lifeline 8D's and receiving lots of good thinking, I realize that whether or not the equalization
works I will soon have to replace them. Looking at and pricing Lifeline AGM's for replacements
I soon realized that there a number of folks manufacturing these batteries and their users claim good results. So, I thought I'd start with the least expensive and ask for advice.
There's a battery
out there called APEX. Chinese made, claiming 260 amp-hrs, that has the same footprint as any 8D but is a couple of inches taller. It will fit in my battery
Now, I'm not much on Chinese stuff ( and these batteries are ) but they have the capability to make a good product. Just don't know if this is one of them. Building batteries has not been rocket science for a long time. does anyone know if APEX has gotten this one right?
I had some advice on replacing the 8D's with Golf Cart size batteries which I am also looking but they won't fit well where the 8D's live. And the AGM
GC's don't offer any price
Your advice would be appreciated.
