    AGM mobility batteries - any I should stay away from?

    Hey All, I thaught I would just ask here instead of spending 4 hrs over on ES.
    So, Im in the market for a bunch of replacement batteries for my lawn mower and some kid scooters.
    Any brands to indorse or stay away from?
    I was considering these:

    I used (6) Powerstar 35ah AGM's in my bike for 3 years & 2200 miles...great battery. Sold them to a neighbor who now uses them in his trolling boat.

    B&B are supposed to be pretty good SLAs. That's what came in my scooter and they've been find (for lead).

    I think the B&B HR8-12 is similar to the UB you were looking at.

    Yeah....SLA batteries rarely die...but they are often killed! If your not riding it, should be on charge/float.

    My scooter batteries are pretty deteriorated after a couple years of use. SLAs usually get about 300 charge cycles.

    How about replacing the SLAs with lithium? Elite power has these 12.8V, 20Ah packs built up in a case.
