6 volt battery suggestions

Anyone every heard of an APEX AGM 6 volt battery? https://www.apexbattery.com/apex-apx6-205-6v-205ah-sealed-agm-battery.html

Any good?

I'm looking for 6 volt batteries and the size of this one will fit in my battery box. Most 6 volt batteries are taller. Current batteries are 10 inches high and that is all the taller my batteries can be. Any recommendation as to any 6 volt AGM's that are 10 inches or shorter in height.

You could check the Lifeline sizing specs for their 6V GPL-4CT AGMs. I don't remember the height, but I also don't remember it being over 10"...

And/or... might it be possible to make a raised lid for your box?

Re: 6 volt battery suggestions

You've got a fair number of choices if you look around, because they've started making golf cart batteries in automotive sizes - traditional golf cart batteries are too tall for your set up and mine.
