This is not your standard under-the-hood installation. Automotive manufacturers continue to find new locations to fit these batteries as their use progresses. Some places these batteries are found : Under the seat – The front bumper – In the trunk. Q. The AUX battery looks like an ETX battery. Are they the same? Can the AUX be substituted with a Power Sports battery? A. No. The AUX battery has a different design. One major differences is in the venting system. Do not substitute an ETX or other Power Sports batteries for an AUX! The ETX has a single point venting system that works great for Power Sports applications. However, the AUX has an Individual Cell Venting System that optimizes valveregulation to maximum efficiency in auxiliary power support functions. Q. How are AUX batteries used in the vehicle? A. The use of the AUX battery also varies. These batteries are being integrated as an essential part of complex electrical systems and can serve multiple functions. It is extremely important to follow all individual manufacturer’s instructions for each vehicle when installing these batteries. Some of the functions these batteries serve are: • Start-stop functions in micro hybrids • Starting assist • Powering cabin accessories • Drive-by-wire power backup • Brake-by-wire power backup • Other smart controls or enhanced electrification functions Q. Do all vehicles that have Start-stop capabilities or other additional electronic controls have an AUX battery? A. No. While many do use the same size battery found within the AUX battery line, some vehicles use a traditional sized automotive battery to start the engine and provide auxiliary power. It is always important to reference the specific manufacturing instructions to assess each vehicle’s battery size and power needs. Q. Aren’t AUX batteries always used to power accessories or electronics and not for engine starting? A. No. It is unwise to make any blanket assumption about the role of AUX batteries. Some AUX batteries are used for starting purposes. SPECIFICATIONS 12-VOLT AGM AUTOMOTIVE AUXILIARY GROUP NO. CCA 20 HR CAP WEIGHT (LBS.)
