I look at a purchase of a BATTERY from the perspective of:
- True Deep cycle (Not a Hybrid)
- A GOOD National Distribution setup (for replacing defective batteries on the road ASAP)
- A good product warranty
- Dealer support
- Customer Support.
If I have to a choice between, Crown, USBattery, or a Trojan battery (all top of the line batteries), and they all are 260Ah rated, if they have the same
Lifecycle, a good national distribution setup (replace defective batteries) and if they have GREAT support, then it is only a decision on who has the best price. What good is a GREAT $$$$ deal when you do not have access to an immediate replacement of a defective battery.
HandyBob has his opinions on a lot of things, you just need to take his opinions and research them, just like you do for any other opinions you hear. Guaranteed, you will not agree on all of them.
