To put a finer point on it, my truck battery lasted eight years even
though the warranty on it (new vehicle battery warranty) was only one
year.  "Josepi" is talking through his ass; both sides of it.

Warranties cover worst case scenario's. My car is a 1999 and still has
the original starting battery, even though it's warranty was only 12
months. We had Rolls-Surrette batteries, which most users rate 7-15
years with proper maintenance.

Since you just "plonked" me you cannot admit to seeing this but...

Many of those ratings are the manufacturers suggested replacement periods.
This depends on the manufacturer's wording. In a critical application most
apparatus would be replaced once the manufacturer's recommended time was up,

But since we are talking hobby usage, mostly. Sue I have lived in the dark
and cold on 5 year old batteries. I am sure many of you have done the same,
living off grid.
