    Here's another battery question.
    Should I upgrade to an AGM on my '24 Civic? I planned to install a hard-wired dashcam with parking mode and the Diode Dynamics Elite Series with their add-on fog harness. My car was not equipped, nor is it pre-wired for fog lights.

    Apparently, the stock battery is an EFB, due to the stop-start system. Though unlike my last Civic's undersized 51R, my current one uses H5.

    I'm pretty sure folks use AGM because they're powering a house on wheels

    not because they have fog lights

    If you can't charge it with the right voltage it's not worth the cost.
