The Exide has a 24 month free replacement warranty which is unique for deep cycle batteries. This is a hybrid which can also be used for starting and would be a good choice for a battery for a boat. I bought it for a RV as it provided good power for the space and it has the 2-year warranty.

Be aware that the true deep cycle Exide Nautilus Gold NG-31 battery has a 15% greater amp hour rating and sells on average for $160. Getting a battery for $50 less that provides 15% more power is what I will be doing when these die.

People have complained about the battery being shipped all the way from California to them and its not being properly packaged and receiving it damaged as a result. My experience was a little different. I live in California and the battery was shipped across the country from Pennsylvania. The carton was designed for shipping the battery and provided 1" of protection on all sides.

The battery was produced in May and arrived with 85-90% charge so I put it on a charger to get it to 100% charge level.

It does have both the standard battery posts and 1/4" studs for copper terminals depending upon what is already in place.

I ordered a second battery as I wanted both the ones for my camper to be identical. Second one arrived in a few days and was in perfect condition and of recent manufacture. No idea what the problems were in the past or their causes but at this point in time Amazon has the process under control for this product at least.

It should be understood that like most "marine" batteries it is not a true "deep-cycle" battery and should not be discharged more than 50% on a regular basis. It safely provides 50 AH for a trolling motor and not the 100 AH as one might expect.

A few comments...

1) You really should have a serious battery charger for this type of battery. I'm using an SS-15A1-OB 15A/12V charger/maintainer on it. However, if you do not need to do anything but maintain it, the SEM-1562 charger will work if you are only planning on maintaining the battery with it; the XMC-31 battery requires a serious charging source.

2) It's important to get a version of this battery that is relatively new. If you are purchasing multiple batteries, you want them manufactured at the same time (there is a label on the left side of this battery that tells you the month and year).

3) I found that the battery is about two years old and I got it when it was already 6 mos old. I then noted that at about 18 months it only had 75Ah of capacity (I have an AMP/HOUR tester). So that means the battery was about 25% degraded, which was concerning, as it had never been completely discharged and was on a battery maintainer.

4) Amazon warranties these batteries, but there is no fast turn around time. It appears they have a contract with Exide, and if you have the proper test equipment... you'll get the battery replaced as long as it's still in warranty, hasn't been abused, and you have the right test equipment.

I purchased this battery to be part of a solar system for running a Phillips Respironics 550p BiPAP SV unit when the power goes out. This battery is a monster, and can run the CPAP equipment WITH the heater for several days.

Looked around internet and locally for GEL type batteries for my 2001 Carver 406 motor yacht and the best deal was on Amazon. The batteries I selected have comparable specs to the very expensive batteries and have better specs than most in this group 31 size range. The delivery time from Amazon was very acceptable and arrived in very sturdy shipping packaging.
I hope to get at least 5-8 years of service but time will tell.

Well, I just had to replace one of these beasts (xmc-31), as it would no longer hold a satisfactory charge. I could only get about 3 to 4 hours of use. I do not know whether a cell went bad or what. I don't think the battery was even 3 years old. I'm not completely dissing these batteries, as they do a great job for quite a while. And, granted, I use them a LOT, which means I charge them often as well (onboard Noco charger). I went to these AGM batteries because I was tired of having to worry about water levels in lead acid batteries (I used the big Trojans). I was hoping to get longer life out of these than I was getting with the lead acid Trojans, but I do not think that is the case. So I am questioning whether spending the extra money for these beasts is worth it if the lifespan isn't going to be much better.

bought 4 to put in zeon tractor. tractor can mow 1:45 minutes instead of the 2 hours as before. they do charge up in 6 1/2 hours. so I can mow in the morning and charge it in time to mow in the evening. 48 volts charger works well with it. did have to call the factory rep to find out that the 200 amp hours is at 25 amps. the amount necessary for the tractor to work.

not having to mess with the acid and water levels priceless!

I bought this battery for my back up sump pump (Wayne ESP25). I was concerned with previous reviews of old stock. I ordered it early February 2013. The shipped battery was a fresh stock from January 2013. It came charged and works great with the sump pump. Amazon shipping was great and received it as promised by them
