[DML] Re: Battery?



Bill and the group,

I thought it would be as easy as entering `battery' in the search 
box at the top of this page, but when I did all I got was battery 
power, battery chargers, battery cut off switches, battery cable, 
battery drain problem, battery dead, battery strap, battery light.
Nothing about what battery size to use.
Although, I did find message # 64377 interesting about Optima 
batteries.
The battery Group Sizes are 75 or 78.  The group sizes are confusing 
since two groups can fit in the DeLorean.  That is, the battery 
length can vary since the strap is adjustable.
If you like you to spend $$ buy the Optima Red Top group 34/78 for 
$169.99 and this includes a three year warranty and it has 800 CCA.  
Length x Width x Height 10" x 6-7/8' x 7-13/16".  Height is to top 
of terminals.  It comes with side post and top post terminals.
Weight 38.8 pounds.
Or if you like you can tell them you have a 1998 Chevrolet Suburban 
since they also use the Group 78 battery.
I personally am using a Napa battery since Napa is the closest store 
to my home.  My receipt says part number 7575, $62.39 plus battery 
core charge $4.00 plus tax $5.84 = $72.23.

Remember extreme weather conditions affect your auto battery.  Ask 
the store sales person how many Cold Cranking Amps you need for 
where you live and the conditions you drive in.

Some frequently asked questions from Optima.

Read all of them.  You'll learn something.

Signing off, Mark R. Vanyo.
Waiting for Toby Peterson to announce the grand opening of DMC 
Northwest service center.  He already announced it at 
www.dmchelp.com.  So I know the answer.
