I would just get a normal one...but some people would rather dish out the extra coin to get the optima gell-type battery

go to CT tell them what motor you have and they will tell you how many cold cranking amps you need in a batery.

It may be slightly higher since its an h22

the normal civic battery 51R has more than enough cranking amps for the h22a that 24F battery isnt gonna fit in the place of the 51R...as long as u get over 500CCA you will be fine with whatever battery u can get to fit in there

A regular civic battery will run an H22 no prob..

I ran my H22 Civic in the winter no problem, and it was parked outside all the time.

I would check all your connections to make sure the alternator is charging the battery properly. Do some voltage tests on the battery when the car is running to make sure it is charging.

A good alternator should output approx 14.5-15 volts when charging.
