Re: Running an Optima battery? As good as they say?

I've had my red top for a year with no problems. It was smaller(takes up less space)[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] than my stock batt but had higher amps[img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. You can mount them anyway enven upside down.

Re: Running an Optima battery? As good as they say?

My Red top lasted 7 years and it was a factory second. I left the keys on one day and drained it. I tried to recharge it at home but it was too dead. I took it to the battery shop where I bought it and they saved it. I bought a yellow top anyway to run duel batterys. They are expensive but seem to last a very long time.
