    12 volt battery needs replacing

    So, personally, I kept the Tesla battery, kept my scheduled appointment, and put the bad battery back in. I was basically just posting for an alternative to having your car basically broken down waiting on Tesla service

    12volt Battery Replacement - NAPA Auto Parts

    I didnt really post this to start a debate on what battery to use. The answer to your question “why pay for the wrong battery” is the reason for this post. Tesla recently has not had the right battery in stock, leaving the car stranded for some people in this forum. I felt like I was pretty...

    12volt Battery Replacement - NAPA Auto Parts

    Im not an expert in battery construction. The Tesla service tech told me any 12v battery is fine to swap out yourself. Yeah its just a normal battery like in your regular gas car. Again, I will continue to attempt to use Tesla service to swap the battery, because its the same price anyways. But...

    12volt Battery Replacement - NAPA Auto Parts

    Im just sharing information here. Do with it as you wish. A regular Auto Parts battery will not vent acid fumes into the frunk. Its a standard battery.

    12volt Battery Replacement - NAPA Auto Parts

    Yeah I couldnt, still cant, find a replacement for the Atlas brand. There is the $500 Ohmmu lith-ion option, but not worth it imo. But my point was, you dont need the Tesla brand battery. Just get any 12volt in the 51R size family and throw it in there if you have to

    12volt Battery Replacement - NAPA Auto Parts

    No, the Napa Auto battery did not need a vent. It was around $120. The mobile service from Tesla, replacing the Atlas, was also $120 including labor. That is obviously the preferred method, but no bueno if your car is going to be down for days

    12 volt battery needs replacing

    Oh ok. I thought this was a 12volt battery thread… that would be low voltage/standard battery. Yeah mine is in my frunk too. You dont need the Tesla brand battery, just the correct size 12volt from any store. Just my experience…

    12 volt battery needs replacing

    I have a Model 3 LR, with the stock Atlas battery. I was able to size up a new 12volt from Napa. Quick $120, 10 mins of work. Tesla Mobile technician told me theres no issue using a non-tesla 12v stock battery

    12volt Battery Replacement - NAPA Auto Parts

    Hey yall. I know this has been discussed at length on here, but I wanted to provide a different perspective. So my 12v alarm went off 2 weeks ago, with the earliest appointment being yesterday. The service center was impossible to reach by phone. Batteries were apparently not in stock. There is...

    Alternative Fuel Vehicle License Plate - Georgia

    Has anyone actually tried to travel the I-75 I-575 express lanes with a peach pass, with an AFV tag registered with peach pass, to see if they actually charge you? I was hoping with my non-toll account that it wouldnt register.
