I think it depends how long they've been in storage. Doesn't mean it's no good tho' just needs a long initial charge

Like I say it came fully charged 12.67v and checked it before I put it in and it was still 12.67v,, after it was left in me shed for a couple of days before fitting. On connecting to the car I retested it to see if I was getting a drain as the old battery kept on draining (4 days and down to 10.4ish volts sat doing nothing) this one after a day was still showing 12.6v so I’ll be keeping an eye on it over the next couple of days just to put my mind at rest that I ain’t got a parasitic draw

And I thought a car battery was just a battery ....now I don’t know what to buy ,,, will 3 AAA fit in the battery box

ignore the battery snobbery!...At end of day its a transit loaded with useless electrics from China...The “not so intelligent” charging seems to prefer between 70-75 mah calcium.in mine anyway?...just make sure you get guarantee...replaced battery last year...dead 2 days later...replacement was fine...As for ECP?... I never buy now unless seller is within head butting distance.....
