it burns off the internal corrosion from the plates. car starts like a champ in 0 degree temperatures so i say its fine by me

I had a westco battery and I liked it. Then my friend left it connected to my car for 3.5 weeks. Then it died . So now I ordered a Barllie battery This one better do way better or I'm just going to switch back to a normal size batter and drop it into the trunk. If I do that I'll have to put a kill switch on it.

not sure on the weight but i've been looking into the 06-ish honda civic battery....i know it sounds like blasphmey but it really is a small battery and if it's trusted to go in a mega selling civic it should hold up to DD in my nx

I'm running an 8amu1r battery from Autozone. You can find it for cheap, if they are a year old you can pick it up for $45, but with no warranty. They aren't bad batteries, but if you don't mind paying full price you can get 3 yr free replacement. They aren't super light, but they are small and pretty reliable.

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?

Sorta related, this was a post about my battery relocator to the fender setup I had for sale.

I used a very small Autozone battery, check out the size of the dollar bill in the one photo:

Bunch of photos:
