Battery relocation to trunk

Discussion in 'Electronics' started by silentsnow31802, Mar 5, 2009.

  1. So my car needs a battery, I thought to myself... why not relocate it to the trunk while im at it so I went looking for kits. I found a few on summit that I like. I was looking at sealed, plastic kits. One had a 4 gauge and one was a 1 gauge wire.

    I would like to know what you guys think... do I need 1 gauge wire? Is sealed and plastic a good idea? Car is a daily driver so I thought plastic would be better, and sealed so I didnt have to buy a sealed battery. Speaking of would I have to run a vent from the battery box to the outside of the car if not running a sealed battery?

    Here are the two I was looking at....

    hell im using 2 under for my relocation...(-2g)....1g would be more than enough for your car. imo a sealed aluminum box it the way to be...
  3. Why aluminum? Plastic dont conduct electricity... i like the sound of that.

    And holy crap -2G wtf.... thats quite the wire...

    the connectors are insulated so they dont short the battery out, and yeah, im beeeeefing my wiring up, i replaced the charge system 10g wiring with overkilled 6g....
  5. Nice... I wouldnt mind doing that one day but not anytime soon. Must be nice seeing it all new and upgraded huh?

    i dont have the batt box as of yet, check my ride thread, on pg two i think it shows the 6g re-wiring...
  7. Thats one crazy build you got going there. You got some dedication to be working in the cold like that.

    yeah... i havent decided if im dedicated or gone mad... shes one of a kind though, and i have a few tricks up my sleeve that im staring at as we speak..lol
  9. Maybe a little of both... just think of how nice it will be once your done. What you will have and how you can say you did it all yourself. Dedicated or mad, whatever, your doing some fine work keep it up!
