    You're welcome, Jeffrey.
    I have heard of problems with Optima over the last 4-5 years. I have no experience with the other brand.

    Re: Battery Replacement?

    Yes! We have gone through DOZENS of the optima batteries. The problem is once a cell a fried, its done, there's no bringing it back. Where as the Odyssey battery will allow you to run them all the way down and you can still bring them back.

    On our Challenge CTS-V Coupe we typically leave the car "ON" but not running to allow the diff fan and pump to continue to cycle between run sessions. That is about 1-1.5 hours on average.

    Thank you,

    Hi,

    Do you consider them better than Optima batteries? If so, why?

    Thanks,
    Jeffrey

    Hello Rob,
    Yes that is the correct battery part number. Make sure you order the correct post size and top mount if there are available options when ordering. But that is the correct battery part number and no modifications should be required for installation.

    Thank you,
