[Sentoa] AGM Battery Life

I would endorse AGMs for their no maintenance and long life qualities..

My original Nordic batteries were flooded. In August 2003, I replaced the start battery with a Deka AGM.

Just now it is showing signs of weakening. If I don't keep it charged up, in a couple of days it will not start the Cummins. So I will replace it soon with a Lifeline AGM, since that is now the factory standard. Also, for the same battery, the Lifeline provides more AHr's.

I think 8+ years is a good run for a start battery. I also think that keeping it charge up helps its life,.
