          A great sealed battery for your high power needs.
          After arriving just charge the battery and you are ready to go.
          I use this in my fishing kayak for lights, sonar, GPS, radio and charging other devices.
          It works perfectly and lasts an entire weekend of fishing with no charge.
          This is also perfect for scooters, wheelchairs, anything that requires a 12 volt sealed battery with spade connectors.
          See review pics for exact dimensions and power limits as posted on the battery.
          Since this is a sealed battery it can be installed in any position you require.
          Slow charge this for best long term performance, but it can be fast charged as well if needed.
          Highly recommended.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting

          SharkBite ProLock fittings are a versatile and innovative full-flow plumbing system utilizing push lock fitting technology and engineered specifically for use with SharkBite PE-RT and PEX pipe. The SharkBite 3/4 in. Push-to-Connect Slip Coupling intuitive design makes for one of the simplest and most dependable fittings on the market. No tools are required to make a connection. They use a collet with stainless steel teeth that grips the pipe when fully inserted, and an EPDM O-Ring to provide a permanent, leak-proof seal. The Twist-to-lock technology ensures maximum security. When twisted into place with indicator arrows aligned, the locking cap locks the pipe in place and creates an audible click. Removing a SharkBite fitting is just as easy with no tools needed; simply twist the cap turn counterclockwise to unlock then depress collet against the fitting to remove the pipe. ProLock fittings are suitable for hot and cold potable water and hydronic heating applications. They have been specifically designed for the Professional Plumber. Code approved for behind-the-wall installations. 25-year SharkBite System warranty when used with SharkBite PE-RT & PEX pipe. Color: Black.

          I've been using Sharkbite products for nearly a decade now and simply love them. They never fail and they install so easily. Each component is built from high quality black composite plastic for your pipes.
          I like keeping these pro-pack multi packs on hand for repairs at my house and my other units. You always have multiples of what you need on hand, immediately.
          I had to install a new water supply on the outside of the house and the only shut off was the main shut off valve by the water meter. These Sharkbite fitting sets allowed me to quickly add a shut off valve close to the area I was working in and let me turn the water back on to the rest of the house while I worked. Read More

          These simply push into place, twist lock on to the line (listen for the click) and can be released as needed, when needed.
          Sharkbite saves you a fortune in plumber costs and gives you confidence that you won't have leaks and satisfaction that you did it yourself.
          I recommend Sharkbite connections to everyone I know. Read Less
