A line of 6v batteries shown here is another example of spotting US Battery specs on a different brand (go to the "performance" figures)

You will see at the bottom the familiar 208, 232 AH, but they have managed to goof up the 2200 etc numbers by adding 100

comparing Surrette/Rolls batteries to Trojan's is like comparing a geo metro to the space shuttle ..

looked at those for a sail boat design i was working on

seemed like they had more of a warranty last time i looked

Then they recommend leaving the caps on. Since they're vented, I never really got why one should remove them. Seems safer to me to leave them on... even when equalizing. And that's what I've always done.
I leave mine on.
