Re: would you buy used AGMs?

Our house bank is a 440 ah gel. Configured that was at the factory. Not a lot of manufacturer choices to replace a couple of seasons back, but the original set lasted 8 years. I could have easily gone two more with just a bit less capacity.

I like gels for their low self discharge over the winter, as I do not remove the batteries. I prefer to top off every 6 to 8 weeks. I went 12 weeks this past winter and they seem fine.
