me too.... so who KNOWS how long these things will last, or what the decay rate at end of life will be under 'real' use if you are kind to them ?!

One additional piece of info I want to throw out there is that I was very pleased to see that the Soliton controllers now have 'low-voltage' triggers you can set to catch low voltage at either no-load, or sag under load! very cool feature. Presumably this allows a 'safe' floor at full load with sag as well as watching to be sure the pack bounces back up under no-load.
