This product will do for the short term, not designed for heavy duty use. Good replacement for an older car that you are just trying to maintain, not an upgrade or replacement for a high demand useage system. But more than sufficient for a daily driver.

  • Q:

    I have a 26-60 CarQuest Silver battery (2040328) in a 73 MG. Can I use a battery maintainer on this battery through the winter?
    Asked on 1/14/2017 by Alan from Nassau, NY

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Yes, Alan, you should be able to use a battery maintainer on this AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 26, 525 CCA (Part No. 26-3) to keep the battery warm when the car is parked outside during the in cold climates. When used on a fully charged battery, a slow trickle charger will generate several watts of heat inside the battery.

  • Q:

    The battery listing for my 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5 Premium shows both a group 25 and a group 26 battery. What is the diference? Also they say exact fit but in the comments they say a spacer is needed?
    Asked on 1/2/2017 by Jay from Yorktown, NY

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Glad to assist, Jay! The dimensions of the group 25 and 26 batteries are varied. The group 25 battery has 9.10" L x 6.90" W x 8.90" H, whereas the group 26 has 8.20" L x 6.90" W x 7.80" H. So, the spacers are required to interchange the batteries.
