Thanks for letting me know. I have read other good reviews before deciding on this one. I could have probably gone with a lighter model but I went with the safest size in the end. Still, it is 15 lbs lighter than stock.
Mine lasted about 3 days before it wouldn't start when it was warm out. But I have some parasitic loss and my push start system requires higher voltage to start.

3 days without driving.

But like I said, I have some parasitic accessories and a starter system that requires extra voltage. If I use the key I could probably make 4or 5 days. If you had 0 parasitic loss you could presumably go forever without consequence

I have push start too. What is causing parasitic loss in your car? And, did you have 21 as well?

Thanks for specifying. I have no such accessories. 21 is the battery model. Braille refers to weight with their model numbers.

Oh! ft86sf sells model 11. Mine is 21, double weight, double capacity! This should be safe!

Took it for its 1000km inspection. Watching the service manager climb out, exclaiming “my, it’s low” was like the highlight of my day.

Nobody noticed the missing sound tube.

Picked mine up from the valve spring recall. So far the engine is still running and no parts left on the garage floor.

Ooh is that where your kid does something that makes you question whether you should keep him/her or not and you put them in one outside overnight to see if they can survive?
