    Reliable Car Battery

    Soon I will have to replace my battery, and for the longest time I had my eyes set on the Yellow Top, but after reading peoples reviews... I would rather go to Wally world and get there $50 battery.

    So in short I know im looking for 3 mayor qualities in batteries

    1. CCA Cold Crank Amps
    - "Number of amps the battery can produce at 32 degrees F for 30 seconds"*
    2. Reserve Capacity
    - " The number of minuets a battery can deliver 25 amps while keeping a voltage about 10.5V"*
    3. Price
    - Price/ (Reliablity x Warranty)

    Mods I didn't know where this would go, this seemed like the best place for it, move in need be.

    * How Stuff Works

    I have one of the everstart MAXX's from walmart. Works great, and all i have to do to get a new one is just take it in with the receipt.

    Walmart return policy FTW.

    I love my yellow top...had a die hard, a everstart, and a duralast gold from autozone and the yellowtop owns all of them.

    very happy with my interstates. Long lasting and strong.

    I have a blue top in my monte, which also holds up well. One odd thing, it doesn't store as well as the interstates - it seems to lose its charge faster when sitting.

    Re: Reliable Car Battery

    ill tell you what, im going into the navy soon, and i gave my kinetik HC1800 to a close friend of mine because it was a waste to keep it in the car i had it in (going to my sister) and i know he could use it more than anyone.

    i traded him for his redtop, and the redtop is crap compared to the kinetik. i can feel it lag when i start the engine and oen time, my car completly turned off while i was blasting my system at nearly max volume.

    i dunnaw. that never ever happened with my kinetik, only the day after i changed it did that happen.

    could also have something to do with the post connectors on the red top, and bolt on the kinetik... I much prefer the bolt.

    If they guy is lookng for cheap power, interstate all day... or hit up walmart, and just return them when they get weaker.

    As far as a nice sealed/expensive battery, the hc1800 might be an option.

    I had the 2400hc and it was a beast.

    If want a great battery that will be maintence free, Kinetik is the way to go. The harder part is trying to get a hold of one.

    Surprisingly, I agree with you...

    Although I bought a YT because I was lazy and couldn't wait, if I had gone online I probably would have found better deals...

    So i guess the questions are;

    How old is it? Whats the charge left on it, What size is it? How much are you asking?

    I've never bought a used battery don't know what i should be looking for.
