BatteryPete is an avid car guy himself and understands the need for passion, power and shaving weight in those starlight hours before the next race date. Racing applications also require a few things to ensure you get what you want from a automotive small battery retrofit. Always use a AGM or Lithium battery over lead acid for mounting flexibility and explosive power over much larger 12 volt lead acid batteries. Now to ensure long battery life you will want to check the two boxes below during and after your new install.
1.) proper charging after use and during storage with a quality charger putting out several amps in bulk phase charge cycle 3 lowest more like 5 to 10 amps is good, with a float phase specific to AGM batteries… Good ones are NOCO Genius or the Ctek line of chargers… BT ok …
2.) Use the mounting bracket included in the kit I will have sent to fit the battery properly to squeezing it to tightly…. ( you can mount these brackets with battery in any orientation just not upside down… where the terminals are facing the ground) because the do vent on occation when extreme temp or pressure is experienced.

Please note – All AGM batteries require specific charging vs traditional lead acid batteries. They should be charged periodically with a smart charger and algorithms designed specifically for AGM batteries that meet the voltage and capacity requirements of the one in your application. AGM batteries like to be charged between 14.4 and 14.8 volts…. It is further recommended you turn up the regulator in your vehicles charging system if used as a daily driver. Commonly cars are set to charge between 13.2 and 13.8v which will not properly saturate and charge the battery properly.
