The electrolyte is suspended in fiberglass mat separators which act as absorbent sponges. The Universal battery is also valve regulated with a spill proof construction to allow safe operation in any position.

    Batteries were the same as ones I replaced.
    THOMAS -- fresno, CA   10/28/2013
    The batteries are ok I guess. I wish they had F2 connectors. They have F1. To use the batteries I have to crimp the connectors to use with battery backups. I don't know why they still make F1 connectors almost nothing uses them.
