Thread: down sizing battery...

    down sizing battery...

    Im planning on buying a new battery for my Corona and got to thinking. Would it be okay if I downsized my battery from 2sm to 1sn (im really not sure how car batteries are sized in other countries but here in the Philippines it would either be 1 for the smallest..)

    Re: down sizing battery...

    sa akin palagay, e ok lang yan mate! kasi sa RT100 ko na naka 13T ( note: ic type na ang alternator ko na 80A). nakasalpak na battery ay 1sn o yun n40, na mas maliit sa 2sm. yun lang cassette radio at proline equalizer ang set ko. walang amp o whatever. saka i made use of l.e.d bulbs sa park light at stop lights ko ( puera sa signal light ). Orig pa ang wiring ko.

    so make sure na ok pa ang alternator at voltage regulator mo ( if you're using the orignal alt and reg.) before you switch to downsize battery. puede naman mag pa adjust nung regulator ( pero make sure na yun electrician really knows how to adjust it, otherwise baka may masunog dahil sa overcharging ). HTH, kabayan. san ka nga ba dito Pilipinas ?

    Uy! Kabayan!, hehe. Dito ako sa Bulacan area. Border ng Valenzuela at Meycauayan. Thanks sa info pre, mukhang magpapalit narin ako battery size, di sakin prob yung electrical load ni wala pa kasi ako sound system sa Corona ko. Yung makina, ilaw at blower lang ng aircon (pero di gumagana aircon, hehe). Bumigay na kasi ung current battery ko (ung 2sm).

    Admins: Sorry for posting in Filipino, its kinda hard to resist answering in my native language. Hehe. If anyone wants I can translate our conversations.

    Nope not yet, but I already did buy the battery, 1snf/N40. I'll have it installed on my next day off. I'll have the alternator checked when I have the vehicle running on its own power again. Im also looking for a reduction starter and carb for my 12R.

    Edit: Do you also happen to post on a local forum here?. at OSP.org?. I think I saw your handle there once.
