    I've had a SuperStart AGM (rebadged deka) under the hood of my alima for 5hrs now. Has been charged at 15.1-15.2 the entire time with NO issues.

    NONE of my dekas have ever done that, seems to be more common with xs under the hood for some reason....

    What I mean is that the one under the hood is charging and the others are not? I've seen batts charge in even before

    a must watch video if you run a xs power agm battery under the hood.

    Thank you for the video man, about to put an XS group 24 under the hood of my Altima. That engine bay gets insanely hot. (So much so that when you slam the engine its like having the heater on in the car O_O) Guess thats what you get when you slap a v6 in the same space meant for a 4 :|

    All engine bays do this, regardless of engine size.

    Well not all, granted my last car was a 95 LeSabre. But I could shut it off, wait 15 minutes, then do engine work. (the engine bay was HUGE, and engine tiny) with my current car. I have gotten burned the next day trying to do work

    I guess its more of a heat retention thing.. and **** its good at it

    If you wait 12+ hours and your engine is still hot enough to burn you then there is other underlying issues there.

    All cars while being used build up a lot of heat under the hood. There is no two ways about that. Some may have more/less heat over different times, but in the end it is gets very hot under the hood.

    With that said, I still never had that issue with batteries even in my turboed cars.
