What the name implies - exact fit. Just like the OEM battery, exact same size, no need of adapting, splicing, re-routing vent hoses etc. The vent hose fits exactly like the OEM one, more CCA than the OEM.
Have it for the last 3 years now, no issues. Temp swings between summer & winter from -30C or lower to +30C.
They also have the new AGM style. And a good warranty.
I'm with Duro on this. The "exact fit battery" from DEKA/East Penn Manufacturing Co is exactly like the original. I bought the AGM version (9AGM49) for my 2001 530. I was able to get it from a local batteries plus (they had to order it but they got it in a day). Their website shows a duracell branded battery but when I called they said they could get the DEKA.

Also Amazon and battery mart have it listed (battery mart shows it unbranded).
