love the way the listing says '5 year warranty'.....
But at that price you get what you pay for. I'm starting to suspect these are second hand cells, as DarrenM mentioned, a lot of his were swollen. How can a brand new battery be swollen? As far as I know it takes quite a lot of use to inflate the anode.
In saying that, both mine seem quite happy/work well so far.

The reply actually states a 12 month warranty, but a "Life expectancy" of five years. My cells have a ten year (pro-rata) warranty with a life expectancy of 15 - 20 years.

yep, but look at the picture on the listing, it says '5 years warranty'.

I basically expected no warranty when I purchased them, and knew that beforehand :D

As mentioned, the seem ok, I'm quite happy with my two considering what they cost, but I haven't be able to try any high amp draw tests on them yet, as the inverters I want are currently not available due to the virus.

i have had one of these batteries for about 8 weeks and have doubts about the claimed capacity.
I have charged the battery to 14.4 volts and then let the fridge etc run until the battery is at 12.9 volts, using a Chinese power meter this has shown on only 120ah. I have repeated this several times with roughly the same result.
I realise that this is not very accurate but do not have a suitable load to put on the battery ( best I have is a 60w 12v bulb)
My understanding is that most of the capacity of these batteries is between 13.3v and 13.4v
It would be good if somebody could tell me if I am doing this wrong or if there really is a problem with this battery
