Re: Looking to upgrade Batteries... Suggestions?
Im one of those guys that no longer will buy Optima batteries.
I have used them for at least 10 years but the quality is not there today. Still have a red top in wife's Tahoe that's 6 years old now. Still strong too, but it is a American made one.
I bought two yellow tops for my truck and one went bad in a year. Had it replaced and 6 months later other one failed on me.
I replaced them with Die Hard Platinum AGM's and I never saw my starter turn so fast.
That's when I realized how weak the Optima's really were.
You can't go wrong with the Die Hards or the Odyssey line of AGM batteries. Will cost you a few more bucks but odds are they are going to last 6-7 years unlike standard acid lead plate batteries.
