Default Battery

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me where I can find out (or if you already know) info
on what particular stats on a battery I need for a Toyota Camry V6
1999. I mean, are there only certain types of battery's I can get
(compatibility) or those that are powerful enough (min cranking amps
etc.)?. Thanks!

-V

Any place that sells car batteries has a book with all the information
you're requesting. Put in the particulars of the car and it will show
you which battery to put in it.

If you're asking which BRAND of battery, that's a different kettle o'
fish!

All current automotive batteries (except for hybrid cars) are 12 volt
lead-acid type. They are all essentially the same, but their volume is
proportional to their instantaneous power. Your IP address indicates
that you are in Missouri, where it gets pretty cold in the winter. You
should be looking for the battery that gives you the most so-called
cold-cranking amps (given as CCA on data sheets) and physically fits in
your battery bay. Like the previous poster said, most battery
manufacturers will have a lookup table where you can find which battery
will fit.

Hee. I just checked the actual weather data for St. Louis, and it looks
like it doesn't get cold at all by my Canadian standards. I think just
about any battery will be fine for you. :-)

Thanks for the replies everyone. My ip address is decieving though, I'm
actually in Texas so I don't need to worry about CCA's much. These are
the specs of the battery I am looking to buy (Everstart):

12 volt battery
Cranking amps at 32 grades 680
Cold cranking amps 550

Barring the "fitting" problem, you guys think it's good enough?

In Tejas?

If it fits, it's good.

I did a lot of research on this for my 98 Camry V6, and the only preminum
battery that I could find that was exact fit is the GOLD-DURALAST 24F-DLG
Battery at Autozone. Other brands that fit the Camry are either standard
batteries (about 600 CGA), or are smaller than the 24F that fits the Camry.
Be careful, because not all 24F's have the terminals on the correct side for
the Camry, but the GOLD-DURALAST 24F-DLG does have the correct orientation.

They will install it for free in the parking lot of the store.

There is a size (physical) like 24 and then you need to get +/- terminals on
correct side or cables will be too short. An some cars take a top or a side
connection (although some batteries have both now).

Why don't they make short (1') cables to adapt right hand batteries
for left hand use and vice versa?
