I was all set to buy the Optima Yellow Top, but Guru Ji STJ has advised me to NOT BUY the battery at the moment. He said that I should buy it only when I am sure about the year of manufacturing of the battery. This type of battery has gel instead of acid.
When we buy a lead acid battery, its life starts when we add electrolyte to it ... it is different with a gel-based battery. Their life starts when they are manufactured. So, I should look for an absolute fresh manufactured battery before making substantial investment in it. Optima batteries for about 7 years, and the additional cost would be justified if we get its full life.
He has asked me to get hold of an appropriate alternator as the stock alternator is capable of covering minor overload over and above the load of the car in stock condition.
In this case, I will have to get a custom-made solution. There are two companies which prepare custom-made alternators for cars with heavy systems. I am thinking about ordering one from Stinger. They are the best in the field.... Again, the issue of bringing it from USA will arise. And ... I have no idea at the moment how much it will cost. Another jugaar solution is to get the alternator of an SUV like land cruiser ... which might be able to bear the load. At the moment, I am running my system at 25% power in order to avoid any mishap.
InshaAllah, my Stinger 10.0 Farad Hybrid Capacitor and Stinger positive (with LED display) and negative terminals will arrive on Friday.
2C Bhai went to Customs and got hold of my carputer shipment which had been stuck there for many days ... The postal department at his location has been on strike. Now, he is looking for someone coming to Pakistan to carry it personally.
Today I am expecting arrival of 2 pieces of Pioneer W12PRS sub-woofers from Karachi .... They are competition grade subs, and will enhance the performance of Laadli, substantially ...
