HEY JAG: I bought a 6 volt unit for my 1954 Chrysler because it sits around a lot and lead acid battery would run down quite often. It doesn't self discharge so it will last a long time. I then bought a 12 volt for my 38 Lafayette street rod because I was having hot start problems and wanted the higher cranking power. I am completely satisfied with both applications and I am using battery disconnect switches on both vehicles just to be sure of no circuit drain. They initially cost more but you will not have to replace them like lead acid units.....DAVE
