You're welcome, CC. Here's a quote from the FAQ page at the Shorai webite.

Q. Can Shorai LFX be mounted in any position?

A.Yes. There are no liquids in the LFX batteries.

The FAQ page also addresses the use of battery chargers, and battery tenders.

Indeed, the Shorai website contains a lot of great information regarding Shorai batteries.
