How to Buy a Standby Generator Battery

By

Generator Product Expert

The last time the battery on your cell phone died, you probably realized how much you rely on it. A phone without batteries is useless. Likewise, a standby generator without a battery won't be much help either. Standby generators require a 12V battery to start. Without a battery, they're pretty much just a big lawn ornament. Where to Buy You may have had fruitless Google searches for standby generator batteries, but you can buy them online. Online - The problem with buying 12V batteries online, is they cannot be shipped alone. However, if you order a battery when you purchase a Generac or select Briggs standby generator, we are able to bundle the shipment. That way you can get a battery with your order. Please Note: This only applies to Generac and select Briggs standby generators that we have in stock. If you buy a Kohler, Cummins-Onan, or a Generac or Briggs that is not in-stock, you'll need to buy your battery locally. Locally In Stores - You can find 12V batteries in auto supply stores. The batteries are the same as you'd use for a car. The important thing is to buy the compatible battery for your generator brand and/or size.
