Pros: I have five of these fantastic batteries, and do not think they will ever wear out! I use them for battery support and power stabilization of my ham radio equipment, as storage units for small solar systems, and in my motorhome as the coach batteries. No corrosion, no muss, no fuss, they just keep charging and discharging with no maintenance or attention from me.

Cons: Not really a con, just an advisory. Be sure your converter/charger in an RV tapers the charge to maintenance mode, and never charge these batteries with a charger that does not have a gel cell setting and these batteries last forever.

Other Thoughts: I buy batteries, chargers, fuel additive, and so forth from Batterystuff and am very pleased with the products and service.
