Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by POHNY Very good price with free shipping
The battery is exactly what I was looking for and the price was very competitive. The battery is sealed and maintenance free so no checking acid levels or worrying about spills. It is a very heavy battery (what lead batteries aren't) but the UPS guy delivered it safely. I've only had it installed for a few weeks and tested if a few times, once for an entire afternoon, but it seems to hold a charge well and runs the Wayne Emergency Backup Sump Pump Model# ESP25 very well. It feels good to have a strong backup system in place and this battery is a key component of the system.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alex Good product, but needs to be replaced every 1-2 years.
This was my third time to purchase this battery. Overall, this product runs very well and is very easy to install. In terms of its performance, I like it very much. However, in my opinion, the life of this battery is kind of short. My first battery didn't hold a charge after 13 months, and my second one didn't hold a charge after 15 months. By considering spending $150 every 15 months (or $10/month), I personally feel it is a little bit pricey, so I only gave it a 4 star. Hope this informaton is helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnB007 Strong battery for the proper application.
I originally bought this for use with my Basement Watchdog 1/4 HP Battery Backup Sump Pump (Model # BWE Internet # 100055241 Store SKU # 646661).
For the first few weeks it was fine, then our basement started smelling like sulfur.
After much research I found this quote on the Basement Watchdog website, " Do not use a maintenance-free or sealed battery with Basement Watchdog products."
I guess I should have read more before I purchased this battery for the wrong application.
The battery itself is strong and can run a long time on a charge and I will move it from my basement and use it for something else. Maybe to store electricity from a solar panel or for use in the garage.
Please do not use it with the Basement Watchdog battery backup sump pump.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by egres Just ok for the price.
Good battery but for $100 you can buy EverStart Maxx Group Size 29 Marine Battery. It's 125 Amp hours. You can find you at "wall" store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobCee Sturdy product at a good price
Purchased this product on the basis of customer reviews to power a 12-volt backup sump pump. Delivery was prompt and flawless. It is sealed, requiring no maintenance, installed easily and looks sturdy. It did not cost much more than a deep cycle marine battery, almost all of which require monthly checking and maintenance, including addition of distilled water. Hopefully this battery will serve me well for a number of years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck Easy to install if you can cut and glue PVC. Calls our cellphones if it trips on.
Needs to have a battery backup for your computer if your telephone runs through your cable line. Otherwise if power fails pump will run but you don't get a call. If you have a solid land line no problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thomas494 Smart purchase
So far it has been good. No troubles. I like the maintanence free aspect of it. I like not handling battery acid as well as not having to purchase it.
