And I don't know where you got that last part but even with a dead short on a battery you will not drop to 0 volts immediately. Unless you mean over time. But you won't get to 0 before the battery has serious issues I'd imagine.

Anyways can't go wrong witb any nsb.
yeah i got all that from the guy at nsb.. i guess he meant over time

Re: Best battery for the money?....

Its ok to go cheap on batteries as long as you get a warranty....the beautiful thing about getting batteries at autozone or any other parts store if the warranty

Re: Best battery for the money?....

Imo batteries aren't something you want to cheap out on. Northstar batteries is all I recommend. Shuriken performs well too.

Best battery for the money?....

Hi all I'm loving this site. You are all very helpful. You are all straight forward and honest. Loving it!

Im going to buy two batteries for my system and wondering what's good?

Ive heard a lot of Sears Platinum. Also Duracell Agm line. Im guessing as long as its a decent size agm? No need to pay for the high priced Kinetik....
