Default Where to mount additional 12V battery?

I know someone has installed an additional 12V battery to run radio and speedometer; if possible I would like a few pictures and or ideas on where to locate and mount without adding a bag-well trunk. I don't want a converter that might affect the regular cart 8Vís

CART: 97 CC DS

Thanks,

Beryl

I didnít think of the smaller version, I had thought to mount full size behind the current battery rack, will see what pics I get before installation.

Old Mech used to recommend a battery used in power chairs or similar. 12v and about 35AH as I recall. Small and sealed so flexible mounting options. This is the route I'll be going when my current 12v source craps out.

If you get a no maintenance glass mat AGM type for lawn mower etc you can lay it down in the glove box.

This is only good for low wattage applications: I took two 6 volt lantern bateries and wired them in series and taped them together. It powers my volt meter (12 V) and my thermometer (5 V, but 6 V works, by using just one battery in the pack). I hid the battery in the dash along with my fuse block from the converter.

I use my GPS for speed and iPhone for a radio!

The scooter batteries do work good!
