RE: [DML] Battteries, etc.

Al, Not pushing Wal-Mart, But I have used there batteries for years due to
connivance and they have a 3year replacement warranty. The most important
thing is that any battery has to be tied down and not just stuck in the box
and think it will be ok. When you run over bumpy road the battery will
bounce around like using an impact wrench and will soon destroy itself. Also
keep in mind that the higher the CCA the closer the plates in the battery
are together and if not taken car of will render it useless quicker.
Tie it down. Also, If you need a foam rubber pad instead of a thin rubber
hard pad that came with the car, I have them for $3.00 ea.

Two things about batteries in Delorean Service.  First, look at COSTCO
batteries (regular automotive type).  Their warrantee involves 100%
replacement for a long period (2 years?) and their prices are quite

Second, if you look at Harbor Freight's fliers and pages one can regularly
find their trickle charger for a reasonable amount (like $7.50).  I've had
several here on various cars/batteries and they have seemed to be quite
durable and reliable.  They also don't seem to boil the cells (last a long
time).  My suggestion is to put a connector in the car and replace the
clamps on the charger with the mating connector.  The connector doesn't have
to be permanently mounted, but having it makes connecting/disconnecting easy
and fast.
