Re: 12V battery

We have a 2015 BMW i3 Rex, its looks to be 1st sold in 1/2016, so far we have not had any 12V battery issues that we know of but I am thinking we should replace it sooner that latter.

I plan a DIY so what the current best 12V battery, and can it be bought on Amazon ?

None on Amazon.

It takes the AUX18L Deka/Remy brand battery made by East Penn Manufacturing only - no substitutes. They have distribution warehouses around the country the battery can be purchased at over the counter. In the San Diego area:
East Penn
2709 Via Orange Way
Suite B
Spring Valley, 2709 Via Orange Way 92108
Phone: 619-660-0016

You can also buy it online here: https://www.remybattery.com//start-stop ... KsQAvD_BwE.

If you look at the label of the original battery, you will see the 'E.P.M. Products' (East Penn Manufacturing), and the address of their headquarters - 1 Deka Road, Lyon Station, Penn.
