The best battery?

I was wondering maybe some of you guys gonna recommend me the good battery because my died and i dont know which one i should buy. I went to nearest mechanic and he said that the stock is the best and the price for it is $140 ;o

I just want to add that i gonna install HID's, few led strips 2 x ubs and maybe something else.

Re: The best battery?

Go to an auto store and just buy an AGM sealed one. You're still gonna spend $80-100 but I have had no issues with mine.

You won't be able to use an acid pack battery since they usually mount on their side.

Shorai purchased via that link above to I have LEDs, PCV, and PCV Autotune hooked up to it and leave it for a month at a time without starting - never has issues.

P.S. LED strips
