How do you know if you actually received the "Heavy Duty " battery. They both say R-59. I do not see anywhere on battery where it distinguishes between "regular" and "heavy-duty". I ordered thru Ground Up.

Anyone know the difference?

I just filled with acid up to "seperators", I am now waiting 2 hours to absorb, then I plan to fill to about 1/8 inch above seperators, then charge on a 6 amp battery charger for about 4-6 hours. Does this sound correct? Dave

Seem to remember back when these were "new" that a HD was a R59A and a "regular" was a R59. I also think the caps had different colored rings on them. Seems a regular was Green and HD was Red. I've never seen one of the repops so I don't know how far they go or why they would even make two different ones. Who would buy the lesser of the two? Seems you could just make the HD and ship both sets of caps...... Oh, I forgot the chalk stripe guys :rolleyes:
