I'm going to respectfully disagree. I'll pay double for a battery with great cold weather performance, zero maintenance and more consistent voltage rating. I'll go as far as saying I think a lot of the "electrical gremlins" are from weak batteries that never see a full charge....

By the way, I'm nit implying that interstate is not a good bat, just don't think all batteries are creating equal.

I'll put this link on here that I had saved a while back, it has plenty of good info in tit about batteries. The problem people have when buying batteries is they only think of the CA/CCA ratings and don't even know what the AH and RC ratings are or even what they mean. This is a good read if you're considering different battery options.

You think professional is expensive, just wait until you pay for amateur.

Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right.

Examine what is said, not who speaks.
