    Is This a good battery solution?

    Alright Guys, so i wanna run this idea by ya

    Right now i have a optima redtop under the hood as my starter battery, it has given me no problems, hasent failed me yet, back for Xmas, i got a $100 doller sears giftcard, i was originally going to sell my redtop for $90 bones, and then use the $100 doller sears card + the 90 dollers to buy myself a yellowtop instead, and throw that under the hood, but then it dawned on me the options i have available

    Im now thinking of going to sears and buying like a everstart maxx, or whatever there best battery is that they carry for under 100 dollers, and using just the sears giftcard... so i can put the everstart as my starter battery, and then i can throw my redtop in the trunk as a two battery setup

    is this a logical solution? seems way better then selling the red and using the giftcard to buy a yellow, why not just get a everstart or whatever as the starter battery and have the red in the trunk to be dedicated to the amp

    Whats a good kind of battery that they sell for under 100 bones? im guessing the everstart maxx is, because people talk about them alot

    also, i dont know how ide go about securing a battery in the trunk so it dosent move anywere, its not liek you can use L Brackets or anything

    i hate how the prices are going up. i say save the money and buy the biggest kinetik you can fit under your hood. yellowtops are what, close to $200 now? you can find a few kinetik 2400s for around about $250 shipped to you door i think.

    keep the red as ur starter and add another battery and a second.

    red top = designed as a starter battery

    I've got a redtop under the hood and a yellowtop in the trunk.

    I've heard of just many people doing the redtop as there starter battery and using a yellowtop or a kinetic battery as the battery for in the trunk.

    Re: Is This a good battery solution?

    best option to not throw money at your electrical would be to sell the red then get the yellow...why? if your red fails and keep failing besides running to the store to get a replacement what have you gained? the ability to sell a new red top with marginal warranty? i say move up the right way to start with. if later on add a second yellow top or a kinetik later IF you desired or needed too.
