    Icon32 Replacing stock starter battery, preference?

    I've heard a lot of talk about Optima, XS power, Deka, Kinetik, Stinger, etc.

    Does it just come down to preference or do you genuinely feel one is better than the other?

    I'm only running 2k now, but plan to move up in the future. I'd like to get the biggest battery I can fit in the stock location to start. I've done the big 3. Alternator upgrade will come eventually.

    Thanks for your opinions guys.

    Whichever you can get the cheapest, unless you are chasing tenths, u will not notice a difference if all the batts are new and working as they should

    Thanks. I'm hoping to see a vast improvement over this 6 year old stock battery. I am going to be competing with whatever I buy.

    Like I said if your not chasing tenths or if you do not meter it just daily bumping you will not notice a difference, I bet it sounded the same to the ear

    My friend if can tell the dif in .5 then you have some of the best ears i have ever heard of...

    and again chasing tenths. between the 3 there was only .5 diffrence not nearly enought to justify spending alot more on a battery

    like i said the odyssey batt was used ,so it cost less than the battcap or d3100 which were new .better to say i could feel the difference more than hear it .especially on the bass notes ,the deep ones that is .

    I wish I had mylows10's ears.

    You mentioned "starter" battery. What do you mean by "starter" battery. One to crank the engine and a deep cycle to maintain voltage?
