FullRiver AGMs

I saw in a previous post RE Northstar AGMs a mention of FullRiver AGMs. A local chandler switched from LifeLine to FullRiver and the price is good. But, my experience says stick with a US made Lifeline. Has anybody had any experience with these AGMs?

FullRiver? Those the ones from China, where gluten gets put in the dogfood, antifreeze in the toothpaste, and lead in the paint?

LifeLine has a damned good reputation, you chandler switched because someone made him an offer he couldn't refuse to double his profit margin. (Or, his uncle in China called him up and you "YOU MUST USE THESE NOW.")

If the FullRiver batteries are 1/2 price and the chandler will personally warranty them and send you replacements without any cost--immediately when and wherever you need them--sure, think about them.

And the gluten, lead, and antifreeze.

That was my sense... but I thought I would check as Lifeline 4D's down here just went to $850 and FullofLeadRiver's are $550
