Time for new batteries for kids Phasers. What do you use instead of overpriced OEM? Need 2 of them?

Get a hold of Sterling Battery (a NW family owned battery distributor with several locations) and they can get you what you need.

Catalogs should have what you need. Been running Yuasas in my KTM for years, they last about two years... heat of the summer, cold of the winter... bunch of wrecks and abuse off-road... they work.

(I think that's the one that fits; check first)

TT's based out of NV (Henderson/Vegas area), if it's not in their facility WPS has a center in Idaho. Quick shipping.

Local dealer had Sterling batts in stock for $70.00. Good to go now.

While on the subject, my battery was pretty low so I added what I thought was distilled water - it was distilled vinegar !!!!!
I now know this because I thought I'd drink what was left, WOW.
Anyway should it be ok, should I drain and try again, time for new?

Time for a new one. I'm no chemical engineer, but I can't imagine acetic acid will work well in a battery.

And putting charge current into it.... yeah, wouldn't risk it. New battery's cheap compared to your sled catching fire.
