Battery Advise

hi! I found a website, and I saw they have Lifeline batteries for $50.00 discounted and $25.00 discounted on the Optima batteries.

Has any of you purchased from these folks?

thank you for your answer.

Re: Battery Advise

I use an optima yellow top for my portable 12v power and like it. The prices at arent so hot. I saw a nice optima at an auto parts store yesterday (advance auto parts franchise) for $175 and obviously no shipping costs, look around locally and play the manuf. rebate game if it helps.

I bought new Lifeline AGM's for my boat 1-2 years ago. IIRC, I got them from Dixie Battery Supply, and the prices (including shipping) were very competitive. Google them, and see what they can do for you.
