Energy Squadron SFL120 battery

I have explored the possibility of buying one of the above, unfortunately I am told they no longer exist as a company.
I am told that the NUMAX 120ah battery is a possible replacement.
Is this correct?
Are there any other makes I should explore?

I don't know about that particular size of battery but I've used Numax as replacements a couple of times on various boats and they haven't let me down so far. Seem ok and reasonably priced.

I'm using Energy Squadron SFL120 battery's too, been trouble free for 5 years so it's a shame they're no longer in existence.

Numax CXV being a fairly deep cycle, marine sealed battery with good cranking amps looks like the only economical replacement.

It would be interesting to hear from people who are running these type of batteries to see if they're any good.

BTW Stainless 304 will be fine for the nuts and be cheaper than 316. Shame you didn't live closer as I could have spared a couple of M12's Brian
