    Hi,

    Anyone using or know of a replacement to the normal C&G DCS-33RIT? I know there is a lithium replacement out there, but its pretty expensive and I think its too early to be sure that it works well when it is below freezing out.

    I was actually wondering if I could piggyback a deep-cycle battery to the 12V since I'll be installing a two-way radio in the car -- just to give the 12V system extra capacity. Maybe it'll help stabilize the known weak link of the 12V system (the battery).

    I've not been able to locate an alternative. I'm not near a service center either, so was hoping to find one.
