Forte Battery

Post by koayst on 3rd March 2010, 5:09 pm

Anybody has replaced or changed the stock battery ?

What brand or model did you change ?

Another question. There is no keyhole for Forte. What happened when the battery is really flat and you can't open the door with the remote ?

I upgraded my previous rides' battery too... (i not sure if all battery models are like this). but when i upgraded the Amh, the base size of the battery was bigger.

The current Koup (Forte not sure) has a very tight battery base, so might not be able to put in bigger battery.

if not running ice, then no need to change batt to higher amh. waste $$$ only.
But if stock is 35amh, it is a little too low for a reasonable ice-setup. last time i had a 77amh batt for my amp, woofer, front compo, and rear speakers.

if batt really dies, well... if any of your neighbour is AA member... then get them to activate battery service... Very Happy

battery warranty last 1 year also no use. by the time our forte battery die, should be more than a year already.

Preciously. But need to look for a good shop. Got a few horror stories of shops overcharging and give wrong product. So fr, only got good experience at the tire shop opp the jewellery tire shop Very Happy anyway, buy battery better to pay more and get a 100% maintenance free batt

Post by Terrier on 4th March 2010, 9:51 am

if u guyz noticed.. our forte's battery actually underpowered..

with my stock battery and things im running:

- Headlight
- pole light
- HID fog light
- Night rider
- Eyeliner
- ICE w/o sub
- blackbox
- EPS
- Brake
- ECS

Sometimes when stationary at traffic light, my battery guage will sound out when it below 11.5V

if its raining and I on wiper + rear windscreen heater.. the battery shown 11V and below.. when driving, alternator will charge and gaining 13/14V

so its pretty obvious our battery is underpowered after running so many electronics devices.

I dont mind if there's GB on reasonable battery.

Note: our stock battery is dry cell.. not battery water type.. if we change to battery water type.. will it still works? (i guess most probably yes, as the devices only know it required to draw 12V power but invisible if its dry or water cell)

Have not really take a look at the stock battery....but I remember when my battery went dead in my old ride, the mechanic told me the battery was at 60amp but asked me to replace it with a 62amp battery as he says that the car will start up faster or everything will run more smoothly....

How true is this?

I'm surprise by Ano57's post that the stock car amp is only 35.......

ace, open your bonnet
Check out the BIGGEST any numeric code on the battery. U should see a 35....
The code behind depicts the arrangement of the + and - pole position and placement only
The Numerical value depicts the Amp Hour. Bigger Value meaning able to hold more charge = tahan longer b4 battery being drained completely...

A higher amp-hour rating allows the battery to maintain its 12V output better. Batteries can fall in voltage output if you draw too much current out. but from 60Ah to 62Ah, I don't think you can see a big difference like what bro Terrier mentioned, 35Ah to 62Ah should be beneficial.

I also thinking of Amaron batteries, wonder if any bros have installed Amaron? Does it really need modifying the battery holder?
