Getting ready to pull the trigger on the genesis system for my jlr and would like some suggestion on batteries. Looked up the Odysey and Full river so far. Has to be group 25. Thanks

I run Full River 750’s and am happy with performance, I believe the plating for Full River batts comes from the same line as Odyssey …they are pricy but there made to go thru lots of cyclic rates without fear of wrecking them, if going with a dual batteries system be mindful of IBS sensor that dictates how the batteries get charged.

I just went thru some charging issues and tracked it down to the IBS and how it works with dual batteries and how using different Chargers effects this.

Thanks. I’m having my dealer do the install as soon as I receive the kit. So any issues they can jump on it. They have a whole section that does add ones etc.

The install is pretty straightforward but when doing normal battery upkeep with a charger be mindful on how the charger cable is attached to the negative aux and you are not bypassing the IBS sensor also if you decide on using like the repair option some smart chargers offer don’t use them with the batteries connected as the IBS is seeing this elevated voltage and it causes issues with the smart side of charging.

I'm running just one battery in my 3.6. I was getting ready for some trips to very remote Utah and wanted the most reliable battery I could get. After doing research into batteries and manufacturers, and what I could get in my metropolitan area, I picked the X2Power from BatteriesPlus. If you have the dual system then you have some redundancy built in so you can select whatever batteries fit your budget.
