Re: Do Optima batteries make a difference? (The_Hamster)

quote:[HR][/HR]leaked die hard? hmm, mines 8 years old, bought it new, cranks the car over at -30 like nothing, never had a problem with it.[HR][/HR]​

I had one that leaked a bit in my truck, turned out it was cracked on one side near the top. By the time I noticed it was done leaking, so I just pulled the batt, washed out the area with some baking soda and water, stuck the batt back in and ran it for almost 5 more years.
These days, hold out for the Delco Freedom. Well made battery that will out survive nearly anything else you can name, and at a reasonable price.
