Re: Battery Sizing - am I crazy?

Mainesail, those were the deep cycle ever starts that u got from Walmart, correct? They are everstarts, right? Because they still sell them here by me.

I need a new battery for one of my banks, I have had a walmart everstart for about a year now and it does the job so far, but I'm very suspect about anything Walmart sells, quality wise. I was thinking to get an optima for the bank, as I have heard really good things about optimas, but it is $200 compared to less than half that for an ever start dc or similar. What do you think about the optimas? Are the everstarts here:EverStart 27DC-6 Marine Battery: Automotive : Walmart.com the same ones that you tested over the 6 years?
