    Yes the bigger the better you can get 3smf pro if your budget permits.

    If the stock battery is 2SM, you'll be fine with a replacement 2SM. Practical advantage lang ng 3SM is the bigger reserve capacity and cranking Amps. Depending on actual use, the additional capacity may offer some insurance in starting the engine even if an accessory was left on overnight, for example, or if you run into an engine issue that requires you to crank it longer than usual.

    It's up to you if you feel that the extra capacity is worth its weight (literally) in Pesos.

    FWIW, I have a 3SM Amaron in my 2.5 Innova G.

    issue with installing larger battery: kakasya ba? will the battery footprint be accomodated? will there be enough room above, so's the metal hood won't touch the terminals?

    will a larger battery result to longer battery life in that vehicle? i do not know.
    the larger CCA might result in chronic under-charging, which predisposes to faster battery deterioration.
    i do not know.

    in my non-diesel sedan with only a stock radio as electrical toy,
    i install the next smaller size battery.
    over the years, i did not perceive a shorter lifespan.

    Stock sound system, definitely no need for a bigger battery. Will just be a waste of money especially if a few thousand pesos difference.
    May chance pa na hindi aabot mga cable sa terminals ng bigger battery.

    I would just stick with using the same battery size

    Unless there is no stock of the correct battery and there is no choice

    From what I understand naka 3SM na ata si babkalakal ngayon, so it will definitely fit, and the alternator is definitely capable of charging a 3SM battery.

    His question is if it's worth it to continue using a 3SM or go back down to stock size of 2SM.


    If the car is frequently used, there are no accessories with big power draw, and accessories aren't operated on battery for extended periods I vote to save the money and size back down.

    he can answer his own question.
    all he has to do is to see if that larger battery did last longer than the regular-size battery.

Amaron battery
