Nunca habia oido hablar de mantenedores de bateria. Que curioso. Esto me interesa mucho para la moto, que de 12 meses, se pasa 5 bajo la lona
De la cantidad de trastos que tengo, le tengo que tirar otro con cable, va a parece mi garaje el box de valentino, jejeje.
A mi también me interesa el tema bateria, también tengo la original desde el 2005, y no se porque me da que le queda poca vida, y mas viendo el tamaño que tiene, aunque me han dicho que la original es la leche y que ya no la encontrare igual.
Yo utilizo el coche de lunes a viernes, pero le hago 6km; eso si lo dejo calentar eeeeee
Mi hermano compró un cargador del Lidl (el que se ve en las fotos) y lo hemos probado estas dos veces.
Funciona de maravilla y es muy sencillo.
Bueno, pues ya estoy como siempre, leyendo como un poseso!

Optima no longer sells a battery which will fit or cars. They built a D51 and I had one for slightly under a yr when it failed (open circuit) Optima gave a 100% refund and told me that the battery was defective and it was a manufacturing flaw due to the small size. And when I contacted them recently, they said they have no plans to build another D51. I also tried an Odyssey PC925 the favorite Civic model. It needs special handling and without it, it will fail in short order. It can't deal with alarm systems or big loads that leave the battery below full charge when the car is parked. So no matter where you are it needs to be on a charger when it is stopped or it will sulphanate and loose capacity. I tried the Odyssey for weight loss but I ended up with the standard flooded electrolyte sealed antique. You can put a bigger Optima in the truck but weight distribution and cargo capacity will suffer.

Optima recently came out with a new D51 which is the size that fits our cars. And is different information than the last time I spoke to them. It is a yellow top and is superior in every way to standard flooded electrolyte batteries. When I need a new battery that will be my choice. And you don't need any more amps than it supplies. And it's lighter than the stock one

I called Honda and they are selling an Interstate battery as a replacement now! I asked for the original Panasonic and the parts guy exclaimed, "Wow, you've had that for a long time. They don't use those anymore."

Flooded electrolyte batteries, the kind everyone is familiar with, if discharged once will suffer irreversible damage after one complete discharge. While it might still work it will never recover anywhere near full capacity. An Optima D51 Yellow Top can go through 400 deep discharge cycles and still have 85% of its original capacity plus it weigh 26 lbs. There is no comparison.

I checked out Braille racing batteries. The reason they are problematical is their capacity is not equivalent to the oem variety but much lower, so they are always running at a deficit. I had a battery that would start a Winston Cup car and fit in the palm of your hand. (Sales of it bought my S2000) It had 1 amp hour capacity. and weighed 1.5 lbs. But if you try to run an alarm and electric door locks it would fail. If it had been paired with a small lawn cart battery to cover the accessories and trickle charge the little one it would work fine. But alas the technology is buried because it would put the big battery producers out of business. So you need at least 36 amp hours of capacity to keep everything running reliably. And at this time the Optima D51 is the best choice.
