Hello and welcome to our community! Is this your first visit?
I have a 6Ah santi battery. so far it's been fine apart from having to give the EO connector some attention after someone yanked it out on Deco. it charges up, switches on and off and runs my O3 HUV for 4 - 5 hours. I've got a 15Ah as well but the little one is normally more than enough for me and you hardly notice it as it's so small.
downsides are that it's very easy to accidentally turn on or off and the eo cord does look pretty cheap and flimsy
Well yeah it's always a good idea to plug the cables in

Based on 75m 2hr dive with a ripped cable (from standing up on boat not knowing some prat had dumped his twinset on the cable) and 104m 4hr dive, not sure when the rip occured but as the last 3 hours were deco in open water then I think its safe to assume it was at entry or on the bottom at some point.
But you are correct if clarifying Wibs as the individual connectors are not watertight.
PS Yes I only replied because I saw an opportunity to say tiny orifice...
