If you buy from a major dealer, you'll get fresh stock, not a battery that's been stored for a long time without a top up charge. Quite often old uncared for stock will have deteriorated, and sold to the unsuspecting. The stores already mentioned are excellent, as is Cornwall model boats, and several others. I wouldn't buy from an unknown auction seller, a small saving isn't worth the risk.

Wholesale burglar alarm places do good pricing. As they are changed regularly.
