I've been following the battery threads pretty closely lately, and now it's time - or more specifically, Wednesday is the day.
The battery that came in my TJ is an "Econo Power", and was only installed in January. I guess there's a reason "Econo" is in the name! The cables are slightly corroded on the battery end as well, so those will be replaced too. It takes almost nothing to kill it, and the last time, it was about 4-5 days of sitting idle. It runs just a bit over 14V when running, at least according to the gauge on the dash.
I'm not messing around. I'm going AGM. After reading Jerry's and others' accounts of how good they are (plus having heard the same on Harley forums), that part is settled. Other than ease of warranty claims, is there much difference between brands? I'm leaning toward the Die Hard Platinum since Sears is everywhere. Does anyone have reason to suggest another brand instead?
You are going to replace slightly corroded battery terminals?
A short dunk in a cup of of water and baking soda might save you some trouble.
