Spare battery

Recommended Posts

The battery in the 2019 Defender XT Cab is 30 amp vs other models that come with the 20 amp battery. I do not plan on installing a larger battery as some have done but I have been carrying a lithium boost kit since 2013 when my 1000 Outlander XT came as electric start only. 

I recommend a boost pack that is 16,000 mah or larger, Costco in Canada carries a boostme pack at 18,000 mah that is on sale until June 2nd. So far I have not had to use this pack for boosting my quad or sled but it comes in handy for lawn mower batteries, electric start light plant etc. and can even boost a vehicle if necessary. I will have 3 boost packs: one for the sled, one for the sxs and one for my pontoon boat. 

We did have to boost a sxs that broke through the ice last fall and got stuck in the muskeg, he killed the battery and couldn't start the sxs. Most boost packs have multiple connectors so that you can recharge your phone or use the light in an emergency; if your vehicle dies at night. If you buy one make sure you read the instructions as the boost process is not as intuitive as simply attaching the cables and you need to give them a recharge every 3-6 months.
