Batteries

WE have a 2006 Fleetwood Revolution LE 40' . Our batteries are starting to age , we have 4-12V AGM and want to replace them with AGM 12 V. I have been checking and now I have found a new battery it is a carbon foam battery used by boaters more than RVers. Does anyone have them or no about them. I am doing research and they look pretty darn good but would like to hear from RVers that have them in their RVs.

Only about $100 more for the Firefly Oasis Group 31 than the Lifeline GPL-31XT. If they really perform as claimed, with 80-100% depth of discharge capability and 3000 expected life cycles at 50% DOD, they are more cost effective than flooded GC2 batteries, let alone non-carbon foam AGMs.

Are these batteries sealed or vented? Can't find a reference to that point anywhere in the lit.
Also, didn't see the measurements/weight per battery.
