Title: Battery advice
Post by: Frenchy on 04.05. 2011 16:11
I've relocated my battery tray, so the smaller the better.  Anyone have a suggestion?

To give you some ideas, am using sealed lead types (2x6v in parallel here).
These exists in all kinds of shapes, size and ampere, 6 or 12 V.

Try the link for a 6v battery i bought three of them three years ago i have one on a A10 in box and two in battery box wired parallel B31 so both run at 6v, 5amp however tHE B31 is ready to be converted to 12v 10amp.

The resson i invested in these batterys is that they dont discharge over the winter even when left connected, this is one of the best battery i come across

well worth the money

cheers

Same experience, keeps their charge for years, with no maintenance.

I checked out their site.  Do they ship to the US?  It says that they might not ship to certain countries so contract them, but their contact link says they're too busy to get back to you!

So, the A7 battery is 5 amp?  I'm having a hard time finding this number.

"Amp hour" is the unit of battery capacity at a known voltage.

I've found a number of 6 volt batteries in town, each with a different ah number.  6v 4.5ah, 6v 7ah, etc.  I'm just wondering which one I need.

Id say just get the most Ah that best fits the space\batteryholder you have on the bike.

Picture in post above shows 2x 4Ah 6v in parallel, = 8A 6v, found sizes that fitted in an emptied lucas type battery, to keep the looks (http://www.a7a10.net/forum/index.php/topic,783.msg4976.html#msg4976) (plunger).
