Power Sonic Batteries - any good?


Anybody used this brand before?

I need a pair of VRLA batteries for a project, and was recommended Power Sonic PG-12V45. I've never heard of Power Sonic batteries before. https://www.tayna.co.uk/mobility-batteries/power-sonic/pg-12v45/

Good or bad experiences welcome, or alternatives from other brands also considered.

Yuasa have a good name so considered this, albeit the warranty is shorter (1y): https://www.tayna.co.uk/mobility-batteries/yuasa/rec50-12/
Tayna have also offered a Lucas but I'm not at all sure what the quality of that would be like. https://www.tayna.co.uk/industrial-batteries/numax/fnc12420/


Power Sonic batteries are fine, but they are still produced in China, thus they cannot be better than Trojan batteries sold in the United States. If you're just purchasing one battery, it probably won't make a difference in terms of pricing, but if you're purchasing a large quantity for a project, I recommend looking for alternatives.
