Just goes to show it can happen to the best of them. Buy a yellow top and then you'll have at least a week between starts if you've got an electricle gremlim.
The yellow top has less CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) which doesn't mean much, but the point of the yellow top is to withstand the large amount of energy it takes to run amplifers and/or other electronics on a frequent basis hence the "deep cycle." You don't see many yellow top batteries in every day drivers. That's what the red tops are for.Does something bad happen from the 'less deep' usage?
Please let us know how it turns out! :tu:Bought it at Sears and will run by this afternoon and see what they say. I figure I just got a lemon.
most people look into them because they can be mounted anywhere and anyway. (upside down/on its side)Other than that and the truly maintenance free cells they don't seem to be any better than a regular wet cell battery anymore.
I use them in boats just because of this advantage. They are also better at handling vibrations or rough conditions. Once again in a boat these are GREAT.most people look into them because they can be mounted anywhere and anyway. (upside down/on its side)
Agreed.They "figure" it's the starter??? I wouldn't plop down $550 unless they were "sure" it was the starter.
There are alot of factors to consider when it comes to just one battery going bad, considering how many of these batteries are in cars. You hear more good than bad so.Hmm and here I though I would get an Optima battery next, if they are made that pi$$ poor I think I'll pass.
I would buy another and another, best battery I've ever owned.Hmm and here I though I would get an Optima battery next, if they are made that pi$$ poor I think I'll pass.
