I found a write up about these batteries at that um.... place with the black background. Rolling Eyes They seem to be similar to optimas without the price tag. These puppies are under $100 for deep cycle (I guess like the yellow top optimas). Anybody heard anything about them?

I never have untill i just read from your link...

But from reading there Advertisment sounds like something worth checking out.... I like the sealed spiral celled battery as its a proven design.

"Exide has taken their idea a step further" <~I dont know what that means.

AND THIS SOUNDS LIKE PROPAGANDA
"One thing I noticed right away, was the way the Jeep started with this battery in. It started a lot nicer and
didn't have as much of a surge like with the Optima. It seemed friendlier and a little more gentle on the motor.
"

But i like that they are pushing an Automotive Battery and suggesting the Deep Cycle only for your heavy loads (winch, weilder, compressor etc..).

The CCA is pretty good im curious what the Amp Hours is?
