[DML] Re: Optima Batteries?

The real advantage (selling point) to the Optima is that it can't/won't 
leak acid all over your carpet in the event of overcharge i.e. when the 
alternator regulator fails or someone puts the wrong charger on it. As 
someone mentioned it's also safer in a accident since it is inside the 
car. I have heard(can't confirm this) that they also outgas a bit less 
which should lead to less corrosion in the electrical compartment. 

There are apparently other disadvantages.
