Quick question before I order :) What is the difference between the 2 batteries. I live in Missouri so winters here are cold. Should I get the all season?

I would say it isn't a bad idea to just go ahead and get the all season. The cold cranking amps are usually higher which helps with the cold winter starts.

I checked with management and they said I could add the Dead Pedal. So now it's included.

The sale will last the month of March.

Shipping to Canada will be $24.95.

Attached should be the specifications for each battery.

Q. If you have a system in your car (2 amps+ small sub, no mega wattage), can you run with this battery? Of course not planning on playing them when the engine if off. Thanks.

We have people that do so. But nobody sits with the engine off and listens to their powerhouse stereo.

The B2015 does give you a deeper reserve if you do that once in a while.

if you store your car in the winter Nov/Dec though March/April....will this battery require special care? Or will a standard trickle charger work fine?

bah: During winters I put mine though a Battery Tender, and it works like a charm. Just my 2 cents.

Great to know about the all season Braille :) ... Weighs only 3-4 more pounds, and offers 425CCA. Nice.

Rev, you just leave the battery connected to the car and attach the external battery tender, right?

many thanks for the insight. Can assume that your "battery tender" vs my "trickle charger" is merely a battle of semantics?

I think they are one in the same.

I take off the Braille out and plug it in to this :


It's the same I use for my motorcycles. It's, like you said, a trickle charger (charges only when the battery voltage at the terminals drop beyond a certain level).

I've been using my Braille like this for around 2 years. I take it off for winter, and swap to the stock lead acid battery.

Even though it cranks fine in cold weather, when it gets to the single digits, it takes a lot more effort to start the car. I would say anything above 20F and you're fine. I just put it back in, and we're in the mid 30s right now.

What "Rev" said. For any battery that is stored for longer than a month or so, I would recommend a trickle charger like the Battery Tender or any other trickle charger that is smart enough to shut down when full charge is reached and to re-start when voltage falls below a pre-determined point.
