Can I bend the terminals of my sealed lead-acid (SLA) battery?

If you're having trouble connecting your wire leads to these terminals, then you should re-orient the battery so the leads are easier to connect. Don't worry about how the battery is sitting because SLA batteries are leak-proof, and can be oriented in any direction. It just so happens that these batteries tend to be oriented upright when used as backup power supplies for security systems, like Honeywell Control Panels, or a range of other applications.
