Veight

Just brought the exact same battery yesterday to use as a starter battery for my troopie.
I just put the battery in and went for a small drive.
If you have a decent battery charger I guess it wouldn't hurt to top it up before you fit the battery.

Cheers

I have never done anything special. Just put them in and ran them.

Hi

If you going 4wdriving with it, watch out because they leak like sieves (they also overfill them to allow for it, was told by a Century rep, the marine ones are the same, that leaked in my vehicle too, they replaced with a deep cycle and that's leaked everywhere.. Grrr) and I would warn people to avoid this brand.... When my two die they will be replaced with fully sealed units and they certainly won't be Century..

Just google Century Battery's Leaking...

Goodluck..

Probably leaked because it was overfull not because of the battery itself.

Regardless whether they are or not, who would want to take that chance once warned I wouldn't.. You just need to look at the state of my battery holders. The previous batteries were fine. They did a lot of The High Country without issues (Lead acid batts)
