The best battery?

Hi
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 BatteryStuff.com. 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
