This is the most popular size for electric scooters unp UPS systems, and is also popular in many battery operated childrens toys, electric bikes, hobby-projects, canoe bilge pumps and for camp lighting.

Note that Century make probably the best battery for this application. We have opened them up (not recommended normally) and load and capacity tested them compared to cheap imitations (which often come fitted as standard in childrens toys and many alarm panels). This Century 7Ah batteries tested had far more metal plate area than most competitors, and this along with its higher quality lead-paste formulation gives it a typical capacity of 7.5Ah (7.5 Amp-hours) in our tests versus often only 2 - 3Ah for the other imports. The only close competitor was Ritar which tested at close to the rated 7Ah, and Panasonic which is also excellent but more expensive and therefore more suited to computer UPS systems.

The reason this matters is that it is the real Ah (amp-hour) capacity which determines how long the system will operate, or how long the toy / lighting will last before the battery goes flat! Ignore what it says on the side and invest in a good quality Century product like this one. 

The battery comes fully charged and in most applications (alarms, toys etc) there is a charger built into the system to keep it charged up. However for other applications we do also sell a suitable charger which will not overcharge the battery (a common problem when people use car or bike chargers and leave the battery on charge too long!).
