Batteries shouldn't be left on cold surfaces (e.g. on concrete floors) as this can affect the internals... and basically wreck the battery (not sure how it would work on a gel battery but since told none of mine have been on the floor)i read articles about the cold affecting batteries, which it does seem to.
I'm stuck in the middle. Would you have anyone over in your country when you go off to the military? (Could buy a quality battery and then let them charge it up when your away...?) Not sure if they'd go bad for the amount of time they would be stood though?The site is a power seller and has great feed backs also. I have a battery tender, but the battery doesn't hold a charge for long anymore. It's the original battery from back in '02. I want to get the Yuasa battery, but I'm only going to be riding it till July and then it's going to be in storage till who knows when...at least a year. Then I'm not sure where the military is going to send me next. I thought about selling her, but I love her to much to let her go. So that's why I'm trying to decided on a cheap battery or just get the good one still?. Thanks for all the feed back too
You are very wrong about Ebay and Paypal being great if you get scammed.I have never delt with battery geeks. But I have used and paypal. Both are very helpful if you do get scammed. I would never buy anything from ebay without paypal. If they don't except paypal it will be harder to get your money back if you get scammed. If you do decide to use them read the discription carefully and keep checking for the shipping dates / tracking numbers. If you have an issue notify ebay / paypal asap.
