So, about what, 4-6 years in real use?
I don't doubt it will live longer than the usual lead-acid battery stashed underhood, but I always end up multiplying such claims by 0.5. Neither do I anticipate the roof I put on my house last fall lasting for 50 years either (the claim by the shingle maker). I know for a fact the deck stain I use does NOT last for 4-5 years.
Estimates of service life always seem to assume constant storage of 70 degrees F and the most advantageous kind of duty that could ever be imagined.
