What were those voltage numbers I need to tell them for testing my stock battery? What load for how many seconds? etc etc

Would batteries plus be able to test mine for me?

Also the XTAX7A-BS says it's full and fully charged off the shelf...is that a reliable full charge that I could take right home and use to start my quad or do I need to still trickle it until tomorrow?

Load test 40 amps for 15 seconds. should not drop below 9.5 volts during load.
Yes, they should be able to test it.

If it is already wet and charged you should be able to plug & play, no charging required.

Not sure if it is gel or not but it says this:

"The Power to Move. The Xtreme PERMASEAL™ design ensures against acid leaks, is activated and full charged and ready to go out of the box"

I bought a Gel battery for mine at half the OEM price from my local independant quad parts guy. I couldn't be happier with the results, winter here can get to -40*C and no tender or any maintainence over the last two years and it's good to go!!

one of the best battery is deep cycle battery, it is mostly used now a days and you have not invest again and again
looking for new battery, try out deep cycle batteries it has longer life span than other batteries.
discharge level is very slow.
it can also be used in solar system


check best deep cycle battery for solar. it has a proper guide and numerous options.
