Yes you can. Charging should not be a major issue as long as they are both of the same type. The big question is why would you?

Although you can install two different size batteries, it is not a recommended practice and results in shortening the life of both batteries. Also, that would suggest these batteries have had seperate lives and so are mismatched by age and use as well as CA’s.

So I would say under very few circumstances would I ever do this. If I was strapped for cash and I needed batteries and someone gave me a couple of mismatched 12v batteries then I would use them but I would be saving my money for a new matched pair soon.

Real soon.

In fact, in cold climates you may not even get your truck started unless its plugged in.

That difference is quite a bit depending on what truck you have and how cold it gets where you live.

Batteries have different physical dimensions which are described by Group #.

For example, the Group-65.

Are your two batteries different dimensions?

What Group number is on each battery?

Depending on your answer, I might be inclined to buy a second of the larger battery and use the second gift battery in a different vehicle.

This would result in the batteries having a much longer life span and how long you plan to keep the truck, etc..

But all of this depends on the Group-# of each battery.

Maybe you could take a photo of the stickers.

ARTIC has a good point as usual, what part of the country are you in?? If you are down south might not be that big of an issue or they are free so just go get another 850 and give the other one to a friend. If you do keep them, make sure you keep us updated on how it works. I will predict the 850 will fail first.

Thanks Denny.

I think you are right that in FL it should work fine.

Both batteries are new and both are lead-acid batteries of the same voltage and both Group-65 which are the correct size for our trucks.

I don’t think there is any safety concern using these batteries together.

You’re buddy just saved you about $300.


***If one were lead-acid and one were AGM then it would be a bad combination but two lead-acid or two AGM is fine.

Yes, I would use them if I lived in FL and wanted to save money.

Maybe some guys will add their own experience.

New lead-acid batteries that are a matched set usually last an average of 3 years, especially in hot climates.

If you install those 2 batteries, I am going to take an uneducated guess that you might shorten the life by a no more than 6 months...but this is not based on personal experience...just a hunch.

The trick to increasing battery life is to keep the terminals free of corrosion by using those green and red felt washers ($2 at AutoZone) and coating the terminals with a protectant. I have seen guys use Vaseline or grease or even spray paint. And check the cable ends at the grounds and the starter to make sure they are tight and wire brushed for a good contact.

I wish I was in FL !
