I saw an ad in Motorcyclist where a TruGel battery is shown with holes drilled in it and the light hooked to it is still lit - and not acid is leaking from the battery.

Intersting - so I went to the web site to check it out:

http://www.bikemaster.com/bmstrv2.nsf/Products/D0A5D51618DBEF8F862576B20074849F?opendocument

First, I was taken back, I "assumed" they drilled through the battery - nope, just the case.

Still cool though.

After reading more about this battery, and knowing the prices are very competitive, I'm thinking about ordering one for the FJ.

If for no other reason, I'm tired of checking/adding water..

Have gel batteries in both bikes and a quad.....have used them for years. They will need to be on the 'tender' once a month.
I believe they were developed for the sea-do watercraft, where they could be upside down, and not leak. Great in a quad, upside down sometimes. The overall dimensions are smaller than the original equipment batteries that were in my H-Ds.
Could never go back to a 'wet' battery after having 'gel'.............
