In Poland lot of users rcommend Duracel battery 12V 92Ah, but I don`t know if it will fit on holder. Please write me max dimensions cm or in (it`s doesn`t matter.)

This is probably the battery you've heard about https://www.batteriesplus.com/battery/car-and-truck/kia/sedona/2016/v6-3.3l-850cca-r=mdps (group 49), but it is for Sedona SX and Limited with rack-mounted motor-driven power steering.

The one for your EX is this one https://www.batteriesplus.com/battery/car-and-truck/kia/sedona/2016/v6-3.3l-660cca-non-r=mdps (group 124R) because L, LX, and EX have different power steering systems than SX and Limited (non-electric if I understand correctly).

Here is a comparison of all the sizes https://www.batteryweb.com/bci.cfm

You might be able to squeeze the bigger battery in there, but you should probably follow this guide https://www.paulstravelpictures.com/Kia-Sedona-12V-Automotive-Battery-Replacement-Guide/

I bought duracell battery DA70 (Asia version) but it is too high -222mm (8,74in) I check others batteries (links from mletchworth) and height DA70 was good.

113376



My mechanic called me with bad news... battery is to high, he can`t mount plastics of air intake


113375




Propably 120$ went away. I must looking new battery lower than DA70. My mechanic gave me max dimensions of battery : L: max 350mm W: max180mm H: max 185mm.
As You see I have lot of space in lenght dimmension (like SX or SXL trim)

H5, H6, H7, H8 and H9 all the have the same width and height... just different lengths. H8 is what is spec'ed for the Sedona 3.3L V6. H9 is about 2 inches longer and probably won't fit the battery tray, but it might squeeze in there with some minor work. H7 is the next size down and would likely work just fine.


That DA70 you have is rated for 70 Ah capacity, which is close to H6. 600CCA is less than even H5. I wouldn't want to use it even if it did fit.
