Mel-

You can get authentic "Lifeline" AGMs shipped directly from the factory for similar cost. I bought mine from Randy at Bestconverter.com. See this link. The price for Lifeline GPL-4CTs is listed as $287.50. Shipping last year was $20 each.

FullRiver made in China.
Lifeline made in USA.
Same price, no brainer.

Hi Mel

Looking at the link above I dont see any of the batteries listed 400$. As noted in the link I see the batteries mentioned at 287 + about 23
4 shipping.

What we don't have here is any feedback on the Full River batteries. Seems the best case scenario is a potential savings of $75-100 on an $1800 purchase by going with the lower cost product (Full River) over a known and well documented high quality product in the Lifeline.

I know where I'll put my 2 grand when the wet cells go south.
