.....I'm all about lightweight batteries and not paying too much for them.....that same battery is available online for $53.95 and ~$9-$10 shipping.

The Odyssey pc680 is ~$30 more and has a 3 year automotive use warranty.

My pc680 has been in service since SEP03...and I found them locally for ~$95

I was about to order the Deka online but, I figured if it craps out I can just run it back to the store and swap it out...

So you're not running a lot of stereo equipment? Just got it for shaving weight? Is it actually a gel cell or just sealed acid? I would like to get one but I'm worried about my amps wearing it out.

Are you kidding me? Is it your time of the frickin month or something? I was just asking a question about the battery being a gel cell. Googling probably won't tell me that and I figured someone else with the same one might chime in. I don't have to brag about how much I know in this field, but I am always open to hearing about people with actual experiences with the product.

Surely this battery is too small? It's basically a motorcycle battery, rated around 12ah, where standard STI battery is 48ah.....

...and your member number does not give you the right to be ******, either

it took me about 2 minutes to have it all figured out...so I'll give you the benefit of 10 minutes lead time....lets just say 15 minutes....

...and you wanna come here and post this **** for not wanting to waste 15 minutes of your time to educate yourself on this????
