I'd use a stock size battery. You arent even sure if that one will fit

There's nothing wrong with that battery. If it'll fit in your car, it should work just fine. Why have you had it sitting in the house, just waiting for your stock one to die?

It wouldn't be my choice if I were looking for a replacement battery for stereo performance, but there's definitely nothing wrong with it if you've got it sitting around.

Go for it, as long as it will fit and be properly secured.

i already looked up the spec's on max size battery for my car. 9.1″L x 6.9″W x 8.9″H and for the battery 6-1/2”D x 7-3/4”W x 6-15/16”H . after doing my research i found out it will fit. Just not sure if using it as a starter / audio battery be okay with what i have.

I pulled it from another car i had and never realize it could be used as a starter battery. i would of run it in the back along with my stock battery. but i was told it would not be a good ideal to do that. so i just set it off to the side just in case i could ever use it again.

Batteries that can't be used for starter batteries wont pist cranking amps usually. That battery shows them. So it should work fine

Looks like 40% smaller physically between the 2 sets of dimensions. Might save you 15 or 20 lbs there too lol. Sometimes the battery clamp (tie down holder/mechanism) may not be compatible if the alternative battery shape/size is too different. The link/specs show a good powerful battery. Double check the posts/polarity when putting it in (sometimes the posts shift to the other side).

Definitely agree on the polarity! I noticed when trying to pick out the best battery for my space, that while some of the other groups out there would fit, the terminals were reversed and I didn't want to deal with changing orientation of my wiring and confusing things.

thanks for the tip's. when using this battery as a replacement battery. how many watts do you think this battery will support. i understand it support's 1200 watts. but i hear when using it as a starter battery it will lower that number.

What car and what is your stock battery cranking amps? As long as it is under 1200 it should be fine as that is what the Kinetik 1200 is rated for.

What is the resting voltage of your Kinetik? How long has it been sitting around and did you ever charge it?

For starters, what kind of vehicle? if you have an economy car with a small 4 cyl and a tiny starter that size battery would be totally fine. not that it wouldn't be fine under more stress, but are you really tryna push it?

Next, if that's the correct link, you have one of the original kinetik batteries and its gotta be pretty old at this point. prob not the best idea to rely on it.

That said I have one of the newer kinetik 1400s in my trunk with a stock battery and alternator under the hood of my G37 and with 2500w rms I have zero voltage issues. This battery is about 3 years old at this point.

I have another car that has a pair of XS Power batteries (both in the trunk for starting and accessories) and I find them to be even better than the kinetik.

I also never run a battery isolator in my multiple battery systems so if you decide to go that route don't feel obligated to include one. Definitely plan to include an extra fuse tho.

AGM has a higher resting voltage than a wet battery so the wet will continuously drain the AGM while they try to balance with each other. But if it is your daily runner and the AGM is constantly getting topped off, it probably isn't a big deal.

Kinetik especially advertises that their batteries are compatible with all other types of batteries. I actually killed a kinetik 1400R (the 1400 in the truck was part of the system at that time) under the hood and replaced it with the stock 2 years ago with zero issues.


Anyways..your 350z has the same REVERSE battery terminals as my G37...your old battery will not work. kinetic makes the 1400R for this application, I would go with the equivalent from XS power or go to the nissan dealer and get a stock battery for $75. literally only part in the world that's cheaper through the dealer because of the reverse polarity

You believe the xs power 1200d be a good choice.
