Thanks Imaz! I was on their website last night to order the Ctek D250SA and was checking out their 135ah, thought I might be able to squeeze that in. It's similar size except for length which is 24mm longer. Do you have any room left around your battery to get another 24mm in length?

Even with the one I had was over estimated, hence I had to install it on its side. But it works well for me. I wouldnt go any larger if I could.

Follow the details on this link.

Thanks! And thanks for the link!!
Looks like I'll install the 110ah.
From the photo's of your install, did you wire everything up before dropping it in?
And has it been ok just floating in there?

Wired everything up before dropping it in. I placed a rubber mat so it wont move around and protects the terminals from the body.

It is 31kg, you will have problems dropping it in, so it is not going anywhere. I've been on some nasty corrugated roads for a few hours and it held up fine.

110Ah is plenty!
