UltraTech Batteries have a great reputation and it's easy to see why. I just started using them after trying out several other 'reputable' manufacturers and it's amazing to see the difference. UltraTech is reliable, cost efficient and attractive, all at the same time. Sure, there are other battery options out there, but who does it better than UltraTech?

We often go out of town for extended periods and living in NYC, you know crime is always at your doorstep if you're not careful. However, we feel safe and secure with our alarm system, knowing that I can be instantly alerted and don't have to worry about my battery failing, because I trust UltraTech to power our alarm system if we go through another blackout like in '05.

So glad that I decided to purchase an UltraTech 1270. We regularly go through several 12 Volt 7 Amp batteries a year, but since installing a few of these UltraTech 1270's in our panels, we haven't had any problems and actually have reduced our service call budget by 45% because of it! We figured out how to maintain it ourselves and now we can focus on what we need to focus on and not worry about our alarm system and dead batteries. Three cheers for UltraTech!
