This is my first post here so i hope i get the info i'm looking for.
I have a Homage HMX 2001 UPS (2000VA, 1320Watts) and im looking to buy new batteries (min 165AH ) for it within a week. I previosly used two AGS batteries and the hassle of mantainance annoyed me alot and never refilled them on time. Im thinking about these Dry Batteries people are talking about and i hope some of you could tell me about your experiences with it over a year at least!!. I'll keep it straight and ask some basic questions.
Q1.Which are better Dry or Wet? I always read Wet's last the distance if mantained well,but ill be happy if dry can last at least 2 years or min 1.5 years.
Q2.Charging time for Dry and perfomance in handling max allowed load? not that i will use them on full load daily, only when guests are at home.
Q3.Price range For Dry ones (165AH min)?
Q4.Decent reliable market or shop in Lahore with no warranty claim issues.
Q5.Your overall general opinion of Dry batteries for UPS after using them for a good deal of time (1 year or more) are they worth the extra cost? Would you buy them again or go back to using the wet's?
