I ordered one from them also, but they sent me a wet cell battery. If they send you a wet cell, they should replace it with an AGM for the same price if you call and talk to them. I didn't want to wait, so I bought one from Advanced Auto Parts and just returned the wet cell.

Good luck, hope they send you the right one.

I'm not sure how well I'd handle that concidering how important this battery is to me since I am having problems and it'll take up to 2 weeks for it to get here in the first place. Several more weeks to fix a shipping error would probably get me agitated and I'd have a difficult time not showing my frusrtation to the person on the phone.

How will I know the difference? Wet cell will have 4 or 5 caps on it and the MF battery will have a snap on lid with no removable panels?

A wet Cell will have 6 removable plugs and will come with a bottel of Batt acid.
The Maint free will have a smooth top, except for the terminals.
Make sure the positive is on the correct side. I got one that was reversed once.

Some Maint free will come with a battery acid cartridge. You let the acid drain into the battery then push the cap row into place. the end result will be the same ... no removable plugs .... the top of the battery will be smooth.
