    Re: Battery Selection

    Wow. Good to come back and see some great suggestions.

    I guess I'm cutting out the optimas.

    What about Exide batteries? Anybody have any experience with them?

    There's a huge thread about Optima on CACO or if a search was done on Google it might bring up a link.

    OP, long story short, Optima's buildhouse/assembly of the batteries was moved to Mexico, out of the states. The reason they fail faster is because the plates they use inside isn't virgin lead. Therefor, they last shorter times, than the o/s Optima's. Not only that but have also seen a huge increase on pricing on them around me, about 220 bucks new.
