UPG Sealed Lead-Acid Battery - AGM-type, 12V, 35 Amps, Model# UB12350
I got this battery as a backup to use for power outages, camping trips, engineering electronic projects, etc. I'm always concerned about the state of charge when ordering a lead acid battery online, you never really know how long its been sitting in storage or if it was in storage at an undercharged state which could permanently reduce the battery's life. I was very happy to have my UB12350 battery arrive from Northerntool at a 100% state of charge, a little over 12.80 volts. The battery seems very well made and is very robust. I paired this battery up with a Northerntools 1500 Watt modified sine wave inverter and it works awesome. I am extremely confident in buying lead acid batteries from Northertool and will continue to do so in the future.

This is a great battery for portable use. Provides great power to our portable pool cleaner. Works great with automatic charger.

"Luggable" AGM - Great for portable use!
I use this battery with a Brunton Solaris 52 and a BatteryMINDer 12v Solar Charger/Controller (Model# SCC180). I'm very happy with the combination. The Brunton puts out enough current/voltage to happily work with the SCC180 and this battery to make a portable (luggable?) power source for those times that I'm away from plug-in power. If I need 120AC all I have to do is add a small inverter and I'm good to go. Highly recommended.

Nice little battery
I use these with a pair of Nothern's 15 watt panels for a limited amount of lighting for my small feed barn and hen house.
These are nice little batteries and provide all the power I need for the application.
I'll probably expand the system to add additional lighting to the straw bale pantry and some exterior lights.
