When you need starting power for your hot rod or your race car BatteryPete has you covered. Here are some pictures of Ulysses 2003 Dodge Viper. Try not to drool!!! Ulysses has spared no expense in customizing his pride and joy. Batteries are no exception. We see it everyday where someone is driving a $100,000.00 car or boat and still using or grand parents battery technology. traditional lead acid batteries are a thing of the past. Yes they will still work in most applications for awhile, but usually they cause more problems than they are worth when choosing a battery for your toy. Saving a few dollars in the beginning might seem like a wise decision but factor in the cost of ownership and its a no-brainer to go with a AGM battery alternative like or line of Odyssey Batteries from Enersys. Lead acid batteries are messy and require periodic maintenance or the short life span will be shortened even more. Out-gassing, leaking, short -term discharge to name just a few things that are associated with them. While AGM batteries are maintenance free, plug and play batteries that last 2-3 times longer than traditional lead acid batteries. They are totally sealed so no worries about battery acid leaking all over your pride and joy. One of the reasons Ulysses runs AGM batteries in the viper. They can also sit idle for over a year and still turn over your engine when it is finally time to go play. Lead acid batteries lose about 10% of their charge monthly, whereas a AGM battery loses less than 1%. Though we still advocate keeping a trickle charger like the Noco Genius line of chargers BatteryPete offers on them when they are stored for long periods of time. This practice will help insure your AGM battery will last for years to come and not shorten its life expectancy.
