Don't know why you are having to replace you Red Tops, but if you have
a car that will drain it's battery while sitting, but don't have a
battery cut off switch installed to prevent it, perhaps an Optima
Yellow Top would be a better choice. Your car will still drain it to
the point you may need a jump, but since it's a "deep cycle" battery
it's actually made to be thoroughly drained and recharged over and
over and over again, Yellow tops are resilient in that way, and Red
Tops are not, so if you drain and recharge Red Tops repeatedly, it
shortens their life considerably. My '79 Vette chewed one up and spit
one out in under a year. My fault, not the fault of Optima. My
DeLorean has a cut off switch, so no mystery drain problems.
