    I've had gel batteries for 9 years in the 5ton camper, Still going strong,
    And kept in condition by two individual 12 Maypole intelligent chargers.
    Most all the British military batteries are of a gel type now.
    6.T.N.s are still being surplus'sed though.
    DIAMOND T M20.
    M54A2 I.H. M62. wrecker
    M54A2 5 Ton (with Radio Body. ex praga command station)
    M45 530C fire truck
    M561 Gamma Goat
    1942 Ford Jeep (with underfloor tulsa winch)
    1945 Willys Jeep (with V8 flathead Engine) And now 'that' overdrive'..

    These are probably the best, most robust battery's I have ever seen or worked with. Properly take care of, they will last at least ten years.

    The he amount of "liquid" in the battery, and yes, it's more a gel the liquid, is mesured in tea spoons.

    So if you charge it and liquid come out of the vent valves. Is that water that was absorbed somehow?
    I will either find a way, or make one!

    Thats something I have never observed. I had a battery charging shop in K-Town, that handled 30-35 batteries at a time, and we ran a 24/7 operation. Never saw a Armasafe leak, that had not been cracked in an accident/wreck.

    Have you called the Armasafe folks and asked them about this "water" problem? When I was contracting, I several times called to ask questions, and always got a straight answer.
