Warranty Test Tutorial

Posted on December 12, 2011
One of the facts of life is that batteries fail. Some take years, but eventually they will all bite the dust. Rest assured it is uncommon for our customers to experience battery issues, as less then 1% of the powersports batteries we sell end up requiring a warranty. Our Scorpion brand and Yuasa brand from Motocross come with a 1 year replacement warranty against manufacturer defects. If the battery is suspect and is still under warranty, we will replace it. read more...

Robin's Corner | Series vs. Parallel

Posted on December 7, 2011
When a battery pack is set up in “Series” it changes the voltage of the battery pack. So if you have two batteries that are each 12v 100amps once you hook them together you now have 24v but still only 100amps. When the battery is hooked in series you have the cable going from negative to positive.

When you have a battery pack that is in “Parallel” it changes the amps and Not the voltage. So if you have a battery that is 12v 100amps once you hook them together you will have 12v 200amps. When the battery is hooked in Parallel it is hooked up negative to negative and positive to positive. read more...

Thanksgiving is Here!

Posted on November 22, 2011
Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays, with friends and family gathering, lots of fantastic food, and of course the big countdown to Christmas beginning. But in all this, have I forgotten where the holiday came from? What are its roots? Who is getting all the thanks? It seems that as I get older, as our society ‘progresses’, as time marches on, it is easy to forget where we came from in the comfort of where we are. This spurred me to dig into this a bit as I began to wonder if I had my facts straight or if I was missing the historical mark. The little bits of fact that I ran across led me to a few surprises that I had either forgot, or perhaps never heard: read more...

Mud, Manzanita and Memories

Posted on November 10, 2011
Every year for the past 3 years, BatteryStuff has had the opportunity to be the title sponsor for the MRA Cross Country Motorcycle Race. This year it was known as the “Make it or Break it" race, and was held on MRA property near Jacksonville, OR. The promoters decided to utilize local property rather than holding the event in the central Oregon Desert as they had the past couple years. With the change in format came a change in name. Formerly the Fort Rock Enduro, the newly named ‘Make it or Break it XC’ lived up to its moniker. read more...

Robin's Corner | AGM or Gel Battery

Posted on November 10, 2011
Ok AGM stands for (Absorbed Glass Mat ) which means that the liquid that you would find in a wet cell battery is still there only the glass mat’s have absorbed all of it so that you don’t have it swooshing around inside the battery. Then the battery is sealed so that there is no worries about maintaining the battery. You may be asking yourself is it really that simple, I have to tell you that yes it is….we have more information on our web page under tutorials. read more...

Tested and Passed

Posted on September 23, 2011
I know we all love paying the bills, and I admit that BatteryStuff.com sells products to pay the bills. If we were only playing the short game we could probably sell more product by following market fads and quickie fixes, but BatteryStuff.com has a deeper commitment to our customers than that. Sure we want to be here tomorrow, but we also want to be here 10 years from now. The short version of that is we want to provide only quality products that do what they say they will do, and will stand up over the long haul.

Quick Ways to Extend ATV and Motorcycle Battery Life in Summer and Winter

Posted on September 21, 2011
Wow, with fall weather knocking on our door (pounding on some?) it looks like we have just about wrapped up another summer season. And what a summer it was! Some of you had a real blistering summer, while others have got off way too easy. For sure, the weather here is Southern Oregon was absolutely fantastic, with a grand total of 0 days breaking the 100F mark. That is the first time I remember this happening in the 30+ years I have lived here. At the same time, I know some locales have seen record strings of hot weather. I guess it all balances out in the end. So, being a battery related post, you may be wondering what the tie in is to batteries? Actually, the weather plays a very important role in the lifespan of our batteries read more...
