I have A quick question about the Orion pro-17 power tank. Can this power tank be layed on its back? I believe the battery is A sealed type.

Most of these portable battery packs use sealed lead acid/AGM type batteries that work in any position.  Here's a typical battery used in these:

Note that the description says "Rechargeable battery that can be mounted in any position, resists shocks and vibration. Long lasting high performance in high and low temperatures."
