    I just replaced my battery with Bosch H7 AGM 80 Ah 800 CCA battery.

    In the IIDtool, there's a H7-80Ah-700CCA profile as well as a generic (no "H_") 80Ah 800 CCA profile.

    So obviously the 80Ah 800CCA profile more closely matches my battery but I'm wondering if its a problem that it doesn't have the H7 in front?

    Does the "H" series correspond to AGM battery which I presume has a different charging profile than a standard lead-acid ?

    (I also see there's an H8 90 Ah 800 CCA profile. Not sure if the amp-hour capacity or CCA instantaneous delivery matters more.)

    Oops, had a typo. The available profiles are the "H7" 80 Ah 700 CCA and non-H7 80 Ah / 800 CCA.

    H7 or H8 is just the battery size and has no bearing to Ah and CCA. Just choose the 80 Ah / 800 CCA.

    I changed my battery 2 yrs ago and i did not do anything else. Just took the old one out and connected the new one and no issues to date.

    I used the IIDTool when I replaced my battery and I do not recall seeing any options.
