My OE Nissan Battery was about 6 1/2 year's old, and
starting to get a bit Sluggish, so about 2 week's ago I
started looking for a New Battery for my 2013 V6
Frontier. I've had an AGM Battery in the Lawn Mower for
about 5 year's now, and that is over twice as long as
any battery has ever lasted in the LawnMower. So I
wanted an AGM.

Looked on Amazon, EBay, Advance, Orielly's, AutoZone,
Batteries Plus, & PepBoy's. Pepboy's seemed to have the
Best Price on a Direct Fit AGM with a 650CCA, 25%
Discount, and Free Delivery.

size-35/product/2071581

I just checked and they still have the 25% Discount.
The Install was a Perfect Fit. I connected my EZRed
Memory Saver before I disconnected the Old Battery and
didn't have any problem's with the Truck after the
Install.

I got a very good deal on the EZ Red, but if I hadn't I
might have purchased this memory saver on EBay:

I may have jumped the gun on the Old Battery, cause I
used my Schumacher 1.5A Charger Maintainer to charge
the old battery back up and amazingly it was keeping a
Full charge, but it was getting old and I didn't want
to have it fail suddenly which sometime's they will.

Since this is a New AGM I also opted to change out my
1.5A Charger Maintainer with a 2A Schumacher charger
Maintainer that is compatible with , AGM, Gel Cell,
Deep Cycle type Battery, & Standard Lead Acid---which I
hope I won't have to purchase anymore, cause I don't
much like fooling around with Battery Acid. I found the
best price of the New Schumacher SP1296 @
AdvanceAutoParts.com Online with another 25% discount
and Free Delivery!

12v-fully-automatic-battery-charger-maintainer-sp1-
replacement-sp1296/11887894-P?
searchTerm=schynacger+2a+charger+maintainer

Here is the 25% Code for the Charger: G567BX

I have used the Schumacher 1.5A charger Maintainer's on
the LawnMower, Tractor, and Pickup for year's and
Year's, so I expect the 2A Fully Automatic Charger
maintainer to be as good or better than the 1.5A. They
charge Slowly and they say a slow charge helps the
battery last longer. Since I use this charger on a
Small 12v Lawnmower Battery I wanted to keep the Max
Charge Amperage to 2 Amps.

1st thing I did after getting the New Battery Installed
with Cable's Connected, Put a Thick Coating of Grease
over the Terminal's and Cable End's To cover any
exposed Metal to Prevent Battery Corrosion. I've seen
so many Corroded Battery Terminal's and if gone
untended is a Repair Waiting to Happen. You don't need
those Felt Washer's Battery Spray Paint, etc; It's so
easy just cover all the bear Metal surface's includeing
the Bear Metal Cable End's with any multipurpose
Grease. I started doing this a long time ago, sometime
before 1988 and since, have Never Ever had Battery
Terminal Corrosion Since. The Trick is a Thick Coating
of Grease on all the Bear Metal Surface's.

We are in the Middle of Winter here in the USA, so
maybe this little posting will help you and help save
you some money as well.
