RE: [DMCForum] Optima batteries...



That is why I was considering a deep cycle version.  Optima doesn't list
anything for my truck so I guess I will call them and see what they think.

I looked at them today and the regular battery for my truck is $74.99 and
the Optima is $189.00 so it better be good.  For that price it should have a
picture of a naked chick on it. :)

Just dont let it drain down EVER it will die.  The gel inside does not like
to be run down.  Eric is correct, if left unhooked they will last a long
time as well as in a daily driver but in your case Greg if you had the
optima you could be in more trouble.  My D has gone thru about 5 Optima
batteries all cause I forgot to unhook them.

My Optima battery sat unhooked in my car for 8 months this year- and when I
needed to go again I just hooked it up and turned the key- no
recharging/jump required.

I don't mind paying the extra for it; just want to make sure it is a good
investment. Standing in a cold parking lot in the middle of nowhere with my
inverter running and hearing *click* when I try to start it really sucks.

I read about a few people on here having problems with them.

Greg,

When I bought an Optima for my DeLorean, the parts store didn't have a
listing for DeLorean's in the optima catalog- I just hand picked out one
with all the correct features. If you can find one that fits your truck, and
you wanna give $200 for it, do it. From my experience, Optima batteries are
superior and worth the money.
