    Re: Are big batts worth it?

    It comes down to space and weight. If neither are an issue for you, there is no reason not to run more less expensive batteries.

    Re: Are big batts worth it?

    Yea I'm gonna go with the deka's I drive an 07 Tahoe so space and weight aren't really an issue I can probley fit the 2 under the hood and then 2 in the back.........this is to power my new opti drive 7001d on my 2 level 5 m1 18's but I plan on adding a 2nd 7001d and 2 more batts and another mechman 270 amp alt........do you guys feel that even the d3100's are worth the 350$ price tag comparable to 150$ deka that weights the same? As of right now the deka's look like the best choice

    Re: Are big batts worth it?

    For me the 350 was worth it, only because I am limited in space to 1 battery in the trunk. If I had the space, I would have picked up 3 dekas instead.

    Re: Are big batts worth it?

    my 3100's were worth every penny to me. in the back of my little car there just wasnt space for 4-5 batts. and the pair of them kept my stetsom 4k2d very happy.

    I know one thing batteries will often advertise is the use of 'virgin lead' instead of recycled lead in the construction.
