This battery replaced the stock lithium ion battery in my 17' KTM 500 which didn't even last a year! It's a great battery so far, everything expected and what a battery should be. I'll be a buyer of it next time as well.

I understand I have to fill battery with acid, do I have to charge it also?

Can you check fluid level ?
Rhonda B on Jun 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Most batteries are solid black and you can not see the acid level. The battery comes with the correct amount of acid for the battery.
It has taken over 60 hours to drain just one of the acid cartridges into the battery. Is this normal? Is it safe to add the second cartridge (another 3 days!?!?!) is it safe to charge? Is the battery faulty and possibly dangerous? Should I request a refund or replacement?
Eric H on May 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should not have taken that long to put the acid into the battery. You can poke a small hold in the top of the cartridge when it is filling the battery and it will allow the acid to flow very quickly into the battery and you can have it done within about 15 minutes. You will then put the battery to charge.
Is this an AGM battery?
Brandon M on Apr 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is not.
