My old 740Ah bank died in pairs. One pair 6 months before the other.

Try to match my 23 year old batteries. Yes they are slowly diminishing in capacity due to antimony poisoning. Cell death due to plate disintegration is faster.

It is difficult to determine battery quality by difference in life span with two different people.

It is easier to achieve cell recovery with a higher quality battery. Far easier equalization for instance. Depth of discharge. I suspect Gdetrailer is far more attentive to his batteries than what is the norm.

My Trojans usually started pooping out after 4 years.. of pretty hard dry camp usage. I didn't buy them to not use them. [emoticon]
