Maintenance free, big lie. police  No lead acid battery is maintenance free, that statement is one they make so that batteries die quicker. If they start making them so that I can't pull the caps off, I will drill holes in to the cells to fill them. Currently they use the same batteries and just stick a maintenance free sticker on them to make you think they are. By the nature of what they are for longevity of life they firstly need periodic topping up and secondly the lead plates desulfating.
