Depends on your funding. If you can spend a little more, get an Optima Red Top - they're between $110-130, but they're fantastic batteries. Tremendous power, very high cold-cranking amperage (upwards of 900 amps), and very fast recovery time.

The main thing to look into is the cranking amperage and the cold-cranking amperage (these are listed on the battery's label). The more the better, so get as much as you can afford.

Need a new car battery


Measure your old battery for size. Check to see what the cold cranking amps are on the battery sticker. Check to see what kind of cable connections it has then buy a matching battery at any automotive store.
Or just tell the guy at the store what year and make of vehicle you have and they will get you the correct replacement battery.

Can you replace battery in keyless entry remote with a store bought battery and if i can what size for a 2005 chrysler 300 touring thanks dave


In most cases they're specialty batteries. Stop in a Batteries Plus store and they should have your battery and usually are more than happy to put it in for you

So whenever I am driving my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo in the winter (I live in ND so it gets pretty cold) when I brake my lights seem to dim and my battery voltage meter kind of acts up. Is it time...


Do you know how old the battery is?
Do you know if it is the correct one for your vehicle?
Have it tested at a shop or a parts store, if they do that.
You install the correct group size for your vehicle,again,
parts store can look at it or look that up.
There is no time to replace a battery. Some last 3 years.
All mine last 7 to 9 years
You install the largest CCA Battery yhat fits your vehicle,
especially in a cold climate. Approx 770 to 800 CCA
That suggestion is out,because you want cheap.
A good battery will cost you $110.00

You need to diagnose the cause of the dimming lights and volt meter issues.
The alternator needs to be tested.
Put a volt meter on the batt terminals, and get a reading,then turn everything
on and see if it is able to charge with a slight increasing in engine speed

What is the largest size battery I can put in 1996 suzuki cino, I want to ensure that I have sufficent power for electrics, thanks.


WHEN YOU GO TO AUTO PARTS STORES BUY A BATTERY. THEY WILL LOOK UP WHAT BATTERY SIZE AND COLD CRANKING AMPS YOU NEED. ALL THEY NEED TO KNOW IS YOUR ENGINE SIZE AND TYPE OF FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM.THEN THEY LOOK UP WHAT YOU NEED.

What kind of battery (size) do i need for replacement


HI, there isn't a specific size here. The actual battery that is located under the hood is the correct type but, you will need to purchase the equivalent of what was shipped in this vehicle. any auto parts store will have an equivalent battery that will be compatible with this car.

All car batteries are the same, just different brand names.

Need battery size for 1996 Dodge Caravan


your cars battery might only need charging or battery acid replacement, but if you'd realy wish to buy new one, buy one with the same size and voltage and amps as the one you have right now, or you could buy a battery with the same voltage with a higher amppere-hour (Ah) rating!

Battery again


I don't know the exact size of the OEM battery's amp rating, but that seems low compared to most batteries. At the minimum, you want probably 600 CCA (it's a decent-sized car with a lot of electronics in it), so I wouldn't buy below that rating, especially if you live where it gets cold in the winter (that's where you really need the higher CCA ratings).
