Default Gel Cell in AE Starting box

What do I need to have to be able to mount a gel cell in an AE starting box?

My main question is directed towards knowing if there is some configuration change that I need to do which I am assuming involves removing the holders for the stick packs, but how well it is secured I am not sure which is why I am inquiring.

Anyone recommend a particular gel cell to use?

I put a gel cell in my AE box, but it's ugly. I think I used a 12v, 5ah cell. You need to remove the stick pack holders, and will have to remove the handle to get the cell in there. This season, I just used some 3M duct tape (like I said, ugly) to hold the cell in place. Once it's in, it won't fall out, but if you don't find SOME way to secure it, it's all over the place when you try to carry the starter box. I think that if you could engineer a brace, that would be the way to go....butt the cell up to the handle end and then secure the brace so that the cell doesn't slide down toward the motor.

I didn't like how the gel cell mounted and stayed with the stick packs....

Weighs less, more voltage and looks MUCH better...:-)
