115 Ah Batteries

I have been offered some 115Ah batteries to replace my 110Ah domestic batteries. Is this an issue? They are the same physical size and have a recommended charging rate of 6 amps.

The physical difference between 110 and 115 is minimal... So you have no problem with this. The recommend charging rate, by the way, is long-term trickle charge current levels. They can take a much higher current until they are almost "full" of charge.
The way that capacity has been measured (the 20 hour discharge rate) has been altered a little anyway, so reclassification could have made this change!
