How long is the warranty on them, ie replacement time?

Well if they last well, and the warranty to match, I may be getting one soon, as my battery is starting to feel a little 'negative' in the mournings.

Yea they have a 12month replacement then another 12 normal or something like that.
They "should" last for 6years+ apparently.

I dont think they're covered by any warranty if you have a sound system with an amplifier :)

I dont think they are that expensive, I mean i know they aint cheap but they really are that good - if you think your current battery isnt perfect; then dont 2nd thought it, buy one and never look back!

I agree, the price isn't too bad, you get more for your dollar than you do when you buy a $120 K&N air filter made of a bit of rubber cotton coated in oil.

I'll be in the market for one soon ... seeing as the LPG motor needs a decent battery for cranking ... plus i have a lot of accessories on the ute ... along with decent stereo ... decent driving lights as well.

I've got a Optima Blue Top battery now thanks to a very helpful forum member :) I'm still yet to try the bastard because my car is 3/4s through a T5 install (yeap, I'm just plain lazy).
