From memory ( not to be trusted as I like beer too much ) they were the same.
Cannot check now as back on dirt after 10 wks hoping it wouldn't cost me a grand being on the sea. What genuis thought 2 blokes on a boat fishing & diving at mostly uninhabited offshore islands constituted a danger from the virus & made it a criminal offence but he's so smart he could be president. ( sorry for little off topic rant )
Will check again when I go back to boat but it won't be for a couple of weeks.

Yes it's pretty much my standard for battery performance, as long as it keeps the Engel going well enuff to keep the beers cold & can start engine all is good.

We're in the same boat here in the US. Good to know we're not the only ones. Misery seeks company.
