This 16A-A Motorcraft battery will offer you years of service if properly maintained. When first installing, you must trickle-charge this battery for about 15 hours at 1 amp. This is the most important charge this battery will ever receive. Be sure to always keep electrolyte above lead plates. Add only distilled water when battery acid is below level. Keep battery fully charged when storing for long periods of time (be careful never to over-charge). Remember these are small batterys and can not take a 6 amp charge. Trickle charge at 1-2 amps until battery is fully charged. Lead acid batterys can be hazzardous because of their corrossive materials. Always follow Manufactures instructions and thses batterys will last for several years. I ride a '84 Honda Shadow (VT700) and I am on my 3rd year with my current battery. Hope this helps. Wayne B.

Since replacing my original motorcycle battery with this battery which lasted seven years, I have purchased three of these replacements in the last two years. Regardless of the care given that includes removing in Winter months and keeping on a trickle charge, this battery fails, typically with my charger reporting a fault or dead cell. I told the salesman at Advance auto that these batteries were low quality and other reviews indicated the same experience with other users. His advice was to write a review and if enough complaints were received that they would perhaps start selling a better battery. Some offer of credit would be nice but unfortunately it only has a 90 day warranty.

      Comments about AutoCraft Powersports Battery, 16A-A, 150 CCA:

      This is a very reliable battery if properly maintained. After adding the included electrolyte, be sure to trickle charge at 1 amp. for about 15 hours before using. This is the most important charge this battery will ever receive. Always keep your battery fully charged when storing for long periods. Finally, make sure battery acid is always covering lead plates and this battery will last years. I've got 3 years going on the one I'm currently using. I ride a 1984 Honda Shadow VT700.

            A:

            Hello there Mike. Happy to help with your question. The life of the battery will vary depending on its use. The biggest thing to remember is not to overcharge the battery. Overcharging is what generally kills most batteries of this type.

            Happy to help you with your question Larry! Unfortunately we do not carry an AGM battery that fits your application. If you found a battery that fits the dimensions you need go should be fine with it.
