Your radio needs a 12v supply, it could care less how it gets it!

It won't bother the radio but the battery won't last anywhere like as long as it should do due to the SmartCharge system shoving 16+ volts through it.

Hello we have a moblie mechanic who we use regular and the old original battery finally packed in and he fitted a motrio one , he must have thought it was suitable for a ford and so did we , its lb2 number   but no mention of silver or calcium on it  , may be most assume any battery can fit a ford.!
