- Oct 3, 2012EB20-12 seems to be an excellent battery, and is readily available via
Digikey. Exploit their free shipping, by sending a physical CHECK or MO
in the actual mail. (it's in their Payment terms, check="free shipping
to US/Canada no matter what the order"). Not paying shipping on ~40 lbs
of lead makes the price quite alone quite attractive.
Can you even GET Yuasas now?
BB Battery is actually US manufacture, which yields much more consistent
How long did you use the EP17-12, for the record?

Yuasa NPC17-12 was original battery for the robomower in the US and was a good battery. So I see no reason for the YPC22-12 battery not to be good. The ah rate to battery weight is good. I do use a EnerSys NP18-12 battery and it works just fine. Yuasa is a global company and applies their standards to all manufacturing plants not just paper stickers and gray cases. This IS my opinion so good luck.
