I have a couple Banner AGM's in my van, the van is only 6 months old how long they will last I don't know we don't do sites and never use EHU so if the do die after a couple years Gel's would be my favourite for replacement.If thats the current cost of the exile (£150) then that would of been my preferred choice, but as I said the bosch s5 seem ok at the moment. My van had an exide in it when i first got it but it wasn't working very well after only 3 years but I think that was down to miss management of it by previous owner. If I was buying 2 today I would go for 2 exides if (£150) over the bosch S5's at £98 each.
Please note we do not sell batteries
I thought that too Christopher, when I read the article, but assumed they might be referring to an earlier model of B2B.Sterling battery to battery charger. The criticism is utter rubbish in the link. You can set the charge rates to many different voltages. I have been using them in yachts for years and the battery being charged is agm and is at least 10 years old. It runs the bow thruster and anchor winch which take very big currents.
If you read about Sterling he states that there never has been anything yet invented that wins over a normal wet battery. The gels just mean you can't service them as they're sealed
My 2 x Exide G 80 s are 8 years old now and still going strong. I will certainly replace them with the same type when the time comes.
