Without more info, no one can tell you what size. Go out and measure the terminal posts.

Then call a shop that carries your battery and ask them what size the terminals are.

Or buy several sizes.


Calling them is not as easy as you think. All calls are only to pick up things, not for inquires.



What battery made and model do you have?


It is an Energizer. Not sure model.


Call the bunny, he'll know.

Yes, most common size is 5/16-18 threads here in the US. Not sure if Canadian batteries would have metric studs?

I know it's not metric as one has studs that fit a 1/2 inch wrench.

See if someone has an assorment of nuts you can try. Using the one that fits buy the wing nuts.

Right there is your answer, if its 1/2 inch nut/wrench it's a 5/16 inch bolt.

But it could be and could be a 13mm hex, although I don’t believe I’ve ever come across a metric thread battery post.
They’re either 5/16 NC or 3/8 NC. 1/2” and 9/16” wrench respectively.
