Nope, no isolation, no fuses....fuses add resistance (small, but still adds). I only connect the D31 to the rest of the system when testing or competing.

Holdenboy I just had a completely random thought pop into my head. What you need to do with your port is make one that looks like a huge exhaust cannon and to also put electronic boot struts on your wagon. So next time some ricer is behind your car you can flick the switch and go 'Mines Bigger' then blast thier ears off. :D

Sorry just having desert and having a suger rush. :p

....... post back here if they still have that special on ;)
I don't think I'm going to get it from your suggestion sorry mate. They're in NSW, and even if they did post, the battery is darn heavy, so postage cost would be through the roof. I think I'd just be better off going to autobarn, they've got the best price that I can find so far, so I'll most probably go in there next time I've got a change and pick one up :).

Thanks for all the help though, especially clearing up the difference, well lack there of, between each YellowTop :).

Thanks
Denno

$350 is fantastic. I'll check with dad tonight and see if he travels out that way for work very often, get him to pick it up for me :).

Thanks wagon man

Dude, haven't you got JB HIFI near you? I got my yellow top for $320 but maybe thats because I use them alot! They are good batteries, a good brand to trust.

JB HiFi sell batteries? Since when? I have never seen batteries in my local JBs... Admittedly I've never looked, but they've never caught my eye...

Yeah JB Hifi sell batteries, I have been buying my gear from them for about a year now. They only do the yellow tops but sure they can order them in if you wanted.
Maybe they differ from store to store. In my local there always located by audio amps.
Have a look mate.

I picked up my brand new D34 from JB Hi-Fi for $250. Helps when you have bought 4 amps in like 2 months though. :whistling
