Ok im tired of the overgrown motorcycle battery in the Hybrid... I want to put the biggest red top optima battery I can in there..

Doesn't look like any kits are availiable to move the battery on them to the trunk, what do I need to make one?

Nevermind, I found a deep cycle yellow top optima that fit great... This will be good since we use inverters to power laptops and such for extended periods.

Not only that but my wife has a habit of leaving the headlights/dome light on a lot..

The only Optima Yellowtop I could fit in it, deep cycle battery, I left the key in the AUX position for 12 hours charging my tablet and a laptop off an inverter and it was STILL putting out over 12V! Incredible! This thing will recover a lot better when my wife leaves the lights on all night as well! I love it so far, the car is getting better MPG too it seems not trying to charge a dead battery.. the POS motorcycle battery it came with..

best $180 I ever spent on a battery for sure!
