What does the 'Design Life' of a battery mean?

Battery quality can be determined by the ‘design life’, typically between 5-12 years for VRLA batteries. The ‘design life’ is not and never will be a guaranteed life expectancy and relies on several factors including environment, temperature, maintenance, number of discharge cycles, charging regime etc. From experience, we generally expect a good quality 9-10 year design life product to need replacement in approx 6-8 years.
