Default Battery coat

My battery decided to give me problems in NJ while I was home, think it was from all the corrosion. So I just decided to replace the battery since I did not know how old the other one was. So new battery and nice clean connections = happy Bonne. However, I was wondering if the foam piece around the battery has any function to it. I did not put it back on, figured the battery would maybe stay cooler, etc. So any thoughts on that??

If anything, that would be for keeping it warm in the winter, a warm battery works better than a cold one.

I had it in my 99, too. I never understood the purspose either (but kept it in tact).

Here'* a couple pics of what it looks like:

When I bought my '99 this spring, it had the original battery in it and had the blanket. I replaced the battery and put the blanket on also.

Bill: Here you'll find a picture of my engine with the battery coat. I stands out pretty well against the green Interstate battery. It is just a one-piece foam deal with cutouts for the terminals. Slips right on.

Oh thank you.. I though that was merely insulation from items around it. Not ...the cold.

well thats what i thought as well, just never seen one and wondered if it really had a purpose. I didnt put mine back on but still have it. Cant imagine it makes that much of a difference to anything. Theres nothing around it that would affect the battery, who knows.
