    Just wondering how they're doing in actual use? Comparisons with the Optima & Exide equivalent would be nice also /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif.

    hey are all the same, just different labels.
    Exide are made in Spain.
    Optimas(Johnson) are made in Colorado(U.S.A.)

    The blue top Exide that I have had for about two years
    is still working good. The optima red top that I have had
    since 1991 is still going strong.

    Thnx for the info.

    Just noticed them at Sam's Club & thought my nephew's truck could use one since he beats the heck out of it & his 10-month old Sam's Club Champion regular battery doesn't seem to be holding up too well.

    so cal
    I have one in my truck and it turns the 350 over easy...and I've burned two up so far and just take it back and they hand me a new one...my son left the key on and when i had it painted they did the same, so i can't put that on the battery,
