I cannot find anyplace that tells me the expected lifespan of these batteries.
So this is not a real complaint about the homesecuritystore itself, but rather this battery product that is "required" in my Simon XT.
I do not think there are other choices of batteries. Also unknown, is how "fresh" are the batteries when they are being sold to us. Talking to the local battery company in my area these are known as Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries and their life span "starts" from the moment they are assembled. So if these batteries are sitting on the shelf someplace before we buy them, the lifespan clock has been ticking for that timeframe.
So, buy them from a place that turns them around rapidly. (Posted on 11/12/10)
