    Re: School me on batteries

    So when I said school me on batteries, I was kind of asking about the whole Amp-hour ratings

    Is the general rule as much Ah as possible?

    FYI these are not rebadged Deka Product they are Exide The E in the top label pic and the raised polarity indicators give it away.

    I'm a commercial sales rep. for Batt. Plus.

    I can tell you we no longer carry them in our Stores and we are the biggest franchise in the national chain.

    The warranty claims on Exide product were 8 to 1 compared to our East Penn made product "Deka"

    I would never recommend an Exide Deep Cycle to anyone including a fisherman.

    * I'm not sure of your mounting location but remember you should never use a flooded battery in the interior of the car with out proper venting.

    I understand cost is a factor but AGM is the way to go for car audio guys.

    Non spillable,Sealed, Non venting, They can benefit from higher charge rates, Have a deeper depth of discharge, More charge cycles ect.

    They plates of an AGM are like a metal weave and the electrolyte is a paste that is shrunk wrapped on to the substrate.
    They do excellent with vibration. It's gonna be alot more forgiving chemistry compared to the standard flooded options with the liquid electrolyte sloshing around and the lead plates and lead plate connectors being exposed to the inherent vibrations of a loud system.

    If you need a quote on something let me know shipping from IL to MPLS shouldn't be that bad

    +1 the more the better. It's a measure of capacity. A 105Ah battery will run a device with a 1A draw for 105 hours before being fully discharged.

    For car audio applications the more storage capacity "Stored Energy" you have available in you battery/batteries the better.....

    Re: School me on batteries

    If I choose a D3400 as a primary,
    Could i use another brand AGM for secondary?

    After those videos it would seem like D3400 would be a great primary for me.

    xs is overpriced and overhyped IMO.

    You have an East Penn distributor in the Chitown area and they usually sell refurbs and blems at very good prices.
