@Legioss Cycle life, mounting options (no spillover like lead acid), and storage longevity are the biggest advantages in my mind. You'll get higher heat resistance as well.24F Standard or 24F AGM?
Ignoring price, what are my pros and cons of one or the other?
Sorry to reply to an old comment. I attempted to do the same today but failed due to the battery wires not being able to reach. How did you manage to get your cables to reach? The negative one is especially short. Did you just removed the clips holding them? I also noticed the battery does not sit completely down to the bottom. The metal rail seems too narrow for the whole thing to drop in. I am tempted to return this Everstart Maxx 34N for another model that fits a little better.I've been lurking in this thread for some time and wanted to say that, thanks to your input, I upgraded my E's battery without a hitch.
I live in northern Canada where it's colder than a household freezer and opted for an 800 CCA group 34 battery. I initially set out to buy the Sears model in this thread, but Sears Canada doesn't carry the DieHard line. My final choice landed me where I never thought I'd purchase a car battery --> Walmart. The price for their EverStart Maxx 34N (North) model, coupled with the fact it's manufactured by Johnson Controls, is what sealed the deal. It comes with 3 years free replacement warranty and 3 years emergency roadside assistance which, considering where I live, they better pray I never need to use :-D
