Not much to say about a battery until after months or years of use and then comparing its duration to other similar products. I can’t do that. But what I can say was that when it first arrived, I checked the voltage and it was just over the 8.4 spec. So, it arrived from TrainTek fresh and fully charged. So, I rated it 5 stars. So far, so good.
My hobby store told me there was a 6 month back order on these things. This was AFTER they sold me a used MTH locomotive. I went home, took the tender apart, and found the much maligned white battery still installed, and the terminal were starting to corrode. Amazon seemed to treat the white and green batteries as if they were interchangible. You could order a green, but the sum of the transaction showed a white battery was being shipped. Fortunately, Traintek was clear, and the batteries were available. Kudos to you.
Now, when are you guys gonna start carrying traction tires?
