can i use a smaller battery in my generator as long as it is the same AH?
Are there any cons to using a smaller battery than is made to fit in the tray? I can find the same AH but it measures smaller in physical size than my original battery, which won't hold charge for more than a day anymore
And also, if i'm in the wrong category i would prefer you guys to just tell me and not be jack@sses about it like others in other categories have been when i accidentally posted questions in wrong categories

The main concern would be that the battery has similar amp hours and the same type of chemistry. Trying to switch over to a lithium for example could cause a fire (likely just destroy the battery) since the generator is not have the right charging circuits for a lithium battery. You could go with higher amp hours if the battery physically fit. Otherwise generally the batteries won't vary that much in size and if they do I would raise concerns that it might be a different chemistry.

Same Amps and volts, physical size difference will be OK.
