Have a read guys!

Got coupon code too! :s13:

Some concept is wrong example: AGMs and EFBs have thicker internal plates than maintenance-free.

This means better is good for higher discard current. But not necessary means longer battery life.

Thinker plate means lower internal resistance and higher discharge current capability. As it is thick, it can build up chemical deposited quicker too and life spam may be shorter.

Come to the end is always use the recommended capacity and model designed for your car. Especially now a day, many cars has smart charging electronics build in. These circuit is design and tuned to specific capacity type.

From experience, most batteries these days will last 2 years before neeeding a replacement. After 2-3 incidents where Iíve had to jump start my car because of suddenly battery failure over the years, I now change my batteries at the 2 year mark (also recommended by a few workshops Iíve frequented over the years).

If you need to TOP up, use distilled water (available from petrol stations)

I alway change battery yearly, and sell of the second hand one. So it cost me $30-40 for battery per year and treat it as maintenance item.
Battery less than a year still look very good, and also good for those who want to scrap their ride and tide them over. Win win.

Makes sense. Where do u trade in? How much is the trade in? How much for a new batt?

hachi 29-04-2018 10:18 AM

New one $85 for my ride, sold of the old one $50. Charged and ready to use. Don't need to trade in, go thru carousell.
Other battery models maybe different.

liquidh 29-04-2018 10:34 AM

What’s the capacity of your battery?
