    I'm sorry but 2 years? The sulfates added will condense during discharge and are more likely to cause shorts between the plates in the cells. Additionally now the ability to drive them back into the solution (electrolyte) during an equalization charge becomes impossible. Chemistry does not lie. Even adding more sulfuric acid to a lead acid battery will shorten its life.

    Mostly sealed car batteries here too in Canada. they CAN be opened, but requires a bit of work.

    nowadays, I only see sealed batteries in UPSes and car batteries, nothing to fill. at least here in the Netherlands that is.
