That Panasonic lawn & tractor battery has some funky looking terminal posts on it , How did you get that to work? Do you have any pics available?

napa sells adapters that turn lawnmower type to standard round post battery terminals.
I used a walmart lawnmower battery for a while it fits side ways across the battery tray and is cheap and light. However ,it is not a sealed type or gel battery.
for 35 bucks it does the job fine.Its rated very close to the pc680 specs just not sealed.

heres the napa adapters for the posts.My local napa had them with like an inch of dust on the package.

I still have my Kinetic battery in my car after 2yrs and still no problem.I drive my car a couple of times every 2-3 months in the past 2 years. Just keep it on the trickle charger and it starts every time..

Just picked up a miata battery for the Classic. Smaller, Affordable and will have the life and reactions of a regular battery.
