I have split my LC200 batteries into a main and Aux setup and will be replacing them soon. We do a bit of outback work with an off road treailer and are looking at maybe a Optima yellow top as the main batterty and maybe a deep cycle lead acid as the aux. Just to keep the cost down a bit. Son lives in Perth and has a 120 D4D Prado and was wondering if I could use my old LC200 batteries in his Prado.
LC batteries are only 18 months old but are each rated at only 530CCA. Batteries in parallel in the LC200 so CCA is up around 1060 when in parallel.
Prado does not do a lot of off road work and would have an occasional fridge off the aux battery. No winch and the only extra is a CB which is not used all that often. Also does not get too cold there. I know I should be looking at around 630CCA but it seems a shame to throw the LC200 batteries out. Any advice?
