    Need Battery Advice

    Okay I came here because all you audio guys know your **** when it comes to supplying power.

    I'm finishing the wiring in my 32 Ford Truck and I need a battery. It must be small and sealed so I can lay it on its side in the rear under the bed. Please don't say optima as the last 2 I bought leaked inside a week and really want something smaller. Got my cash back and now looking for a replacement.

    Truck has a LS1 and 4L60E and will only be powering the driveline electronics, gauges, and lights. No AC/Heat and no audio at all.

    Thanks guys!

    Shuriken SK BT20 High Performance AGM Power Cell Battery 850 Amp | eBay
    That would probably be a good battery for what you need it for and it's very small, similar power specs to the red top.
    I have had a Shuriken battery for awhile now and it has worked great, and has very good product ratings all around.

    or you could go one step up and get this one New Shuriken SK BT35 High Performance Car AGM Power Cell Battery 950 Crank A | eBay
