seems like a steal..

but "The battery comes unbranded (no stickers)"... why ?

they look like they are from a UPS battery bank .. similar to many I've worked on.. I really doubt they are new..

Those batteries are manufactured by Marathon (Exide), and are commonly used in mobile cell site DC systems.
They sure as beans are either second hand - the spoils of a battery change out project. Or, stolen - as the price is way too cheap.
The battery will either have a date code stamped on it, or the serial number will contain a date code.
I obviously can't speak for all Telcos, but in our case every one of our batteries can be traced by it's serial number - data centre, purchase and install date.

And if you miss this one he has a 120ah for ten quid more.

I agree with Jim.....why unbranded ?

Buying a battery with an unknown past is as much as a gamble as marrying someone you met online after only one date!
