Someday I will let you all know when I replace my Lifeline AGM's. So far I have two years on a pair of 4D batteries and a group 31 start battery, which I run hard all summer and never charge in any way except by running the boat.

They sit for 8 months during the winter with no charger on them and have plenty of life in the spring to fire it up and go into "float" mode within an hour. I anticipate 8-10 years of service life, but we will see... I have an amp hour meter plugged into a hole but not wired, hopefully before launch this season.

PS is worth the price (to me), although admittedly I don't get something out of every issue that is useful to me.
