So Postosh, basically, your saying that our battery is made by a company that doesn't even show their label on their products, and the other company that makes battery's like ours is a better company?[/b]
You laugh at Johnson Controls at your peril. You would be shocked at how much of your daily life Johnson Controls affects. See their corporate profile
. It is an octopus company like Halliburton.
East Penn (maker of Deka) does
have an enviable reputation, but Johnson Controls is not a bad company, and if I gave you that impression, you have misinterpreted my perhaps inartful words. At approximately the same price as any of the Johnson Controls BCI Group 40R batteries that carry brands like Interstate, DieHard, Motorcraft, Autolite, ACDelco, Varta, etc., etc., etc., Deka's Group 40R battery has about ten percent more cold cranking amps and about ten percent more reserve capacity. Add to that a good record of quality control and low failure rates, and I think it makes a Deka worth seeking out. I believe it, as evidenced that I bought one myself.
I was still looking for stuff like;
I still can't find much based on the info you've provided,[/b]
You must be lazy. With the BCI Group number, Google is your friend. See, e.g., BCI Group dimensions
. That was only the first hit of over 15,000 hits on "BCI group dimension." Did you even try to feed yourself?
but, you provided enough info for me to make a decision on buying this
with the CP-E lightweight tray, because I just installed a system in my car and am getting dimming lights.[/b]
Glad to be of help.
I have read Kinetik's claims, and I keep hearing echoes of P.T. Barnum. I have not been able to discern whence Kinetik gets its free lunch. Maybe it is a miracle.
I hope you like your new battery, but I would be very surprised if it addresses your problem. Big current draws generally need big batteries, or short charge cycles.
Thank you both
You are very welcome.
