    Hi,

    I looked at them some time ago, but could not get past the cost versus flooded. If I recall, AGM (different than Gel) were the newest and most efficient, supposedly delivering more cycles (longer life). If I recall the cost was almost twice as much as flooded. I did not feel I would get enough gain in range or life span to offset that cost, and no maintenance was not a critical requirement for me. It was also not clear if I would need a new charger with one of these solutions. I do not want to pretend to be an expert and mis-lead you, my research was minimal.

    If it were me, I would call the guys at Battery Boys and get their thoughts and pricing. I may also post in the general forum out of curiosity. In the end it come down to cost versus range versus life span versus convenience?

    Wish I could provide more information.

    Good luck,
    Alan

    I know you are the guy to ask regarding batteries....We have a yesteryear cart and would like to get GEL Batteries because they require no maintenance....What are your thoughts on Gel as opposed to regular batteries
