It is what I purchased last, and currently have three years on them with no issues. The seconds are usually much less expensive. My local Ace and West carries the firsts in their stores. Iím in Ft. Myers, and I go right to Taylor Crowe Deka Marine Battery facility, which is where I get the seconds. They may have one near you. Great for all my electrical supplies too.
Do you know what constitutes a battery being a "second". In most cases it is a cosmetic issue but I have no idea with batteries.
