Needing a new Battery.

Recommended Posts

Hello peeps [hows it hanging] thumbs

Just mooching around the net here trying to decide whever to opt for the electrolyte acid battery [i'm old skool lol] or the newer gel type. Trying to find information which is better of the two.

Any ideas please ?

Busters are on flebay selling acid ones at a reasonable price.

Baring in mind I don't have much ££££s to spend on expensive battery's.

Tim.

id go acid unless i specifically needed a gel one Shocked


do you have one sorted for your project? i know that sometimes it can be a pain finding one that fits somewhere. there was one advertised in fast bikes mag that is small and round and can be mounted anywhere. they are also user serviceable. the downside is that they are £80

yes mate i have a gel for my project because it might be lying down. nice and compact but f**king heavy!

I have looked at various "race batteries" which are nice and small, like you say, but I havent got that sort of money at the moment.
definitely something to invest in in the future though

Cheers m8's for the reply's thumbs

Yeah for some reason I've always been drawn to the Acid {electrolyte} batteries, like to see them bubbling away when you wack a charger on them Smile

Cheers m8y I already have the Lidl jobby which will do motorbikes 6v & 12 plus car. I use my bike everyday if I can so I'm hoping I don't have to keep charging it.

Any battery that can hold its charge is a plus plus party
