      i will be replacing my battery in my 2018 sportage in a few months. while in for my last oil change, i asked my KIA dealer for a battery quote. was given price of $194.95 + shop supplies. part # 37110 H6000U. i have been unable to fine info on this battery as to CCA & other specs. the price is inline as to what i have found at most of the part stores for a mid to upper end battery. just want to compare specs. anybody no anything about this battery.
      The specs are on the battery. I have been using NAPA batteries for years. The NAPA battery I put in mine was a https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/BAT8448?impressionRank=2
      Worked great. $194.95 isn't really to bad depending on the "shop supplies" for the dealer. Auto Zone, Advance auto, O'Reilly's, NAPA, etc., will replace the battery for free if new one is purchased from them if you don't feel comfortable doing so. I have a power maintainer that plugs into a cigarette lighter or always hot power point that puts voltage in the system so when you swap your battery you lose ne programming such as radio presets, etc.. Inexpensive to buy. Good Luck.

      You should lose no presets when you disconnect your battery for a short period of time. The presets are stored in non-volatile memory. We used to use those battery maintainers in the olden days years ago. Things have changed since then. The only difference is when you disconnect the battery, you give your infotainment system a hard boot rather than a soft boot. Occasionally, that's a good thing to do to wipe out any corruption.
