    Bought an optima red top a couple days ago after my other battery just plain kept dying, well today came home from work and left my lights on(overcast not dark). Just went out after 2 hours of being home and the truck fired right up. Old battery would have been dead in 20 minutes.

    Drove mine from Atlanta to Murphy, NC- couple hr drive, head lts, fog lts, CB, and some cig lighter plug ins, cut back to just the head lts & CB once I realized what was going on- w/ a dead alt. Red top didn't strand me but would not restart after I shut it down. I am sold on them /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
