Here are some pics of the dual battery system for the exy. There is an xtrail specific dual battery tray that has been manufactured by Piranha and it is the system I was offered to try. (haven't got around doing that yet)

Re: Dual Batteries


Jalal,
 Please correct me if I am wrong, but pic 2 is of a battery case, for placing the battery inside the vehicle ??? Apart from that, the Opposite Lock system is top notch, with an excellent battery system controller (pic 1).

Re: Dual Batteries


Possibly Brett, although I thought that the engine bay dual battery system would look exactly the same size.

Re: Dual Batteries


Jalal,
 Just checked and the item in pic 2 is for fitment inside the cabin or the rear of a ute. The actual battery fits inside this box and is wired to the numerous external outlets on this box. The underbonnet tray should be the same as the current battery tray, with mounting provisions for the firewall or where-ever they intend to fit it. I'd be checking with OL(Piranha) about this install mate, just to check what you are getting and where it is going.

Re: Dual Batteries


Brett, I have asked about the tray and was told that the dual battery tray is made by Piranha for sure and this is what I should be getting.

Re: Dual Batteries


Guys, I have just changed the design of the dual battery system in the back of the car. Took out the rear drawer system, made a hinged spare wheel cover & placed the battery on it's side in the right rear corner of the spare well(where the jack used to sit)Battery is slightly higher than the floor by about 10mm but the rear carpet covers this & is barely noticable. Had the battery already so wasn't going to replace it! If I had to buy one you could possibly find an optima or oddysee to fit.

Re: Dual Batteries


Hi Phil,

Long time between posts, welcome back, emoticon

I just have one question, is that a dry cell you have there on it's side? Is there any concerns with the battery being on it's side all the time, from a safety aspect that is?
