    remember it may last upto 2 1/2 times longer 'off hookup' but will take a lot longer to recharge again....

    asking which batteries are best is like asking which beer is best or which shocks are best:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
    Having said that ---there are different types of battery----in general, I believe the more you pay, the better you get:thumb::thumb:

    Hi,

    If you give Glenn or Ian a ring, they will be able to advise you especially if it is on a Swift.

    just thought if went for a 220amp battery could fit behind drivers seat and connections would be the same as 85amp, as for charging go from folkestone to london stay two nights for work then travel back so should get plenty of charge.:thumb:
