Optima batteries and the Overland dual battery tray

Hello!

Through searching I see people have used Optima Batteries for their dual battery set up but the batteries are in separate trays. I also found that others use the Odyssey batteries that Overland recommends with its dual battery tray. I have not found anything where people have used the Optima batteries in the Overland dual tray.

Has anyone used the Optima batteries in conjunction with the Overland dual battery tray? (It appears one of the yellow tops fits the dimensions but still wanted to ask the question and see any pics).

BTW.. I have a second gen.

Never seen it . Just go Odessey ? Optima is losing some of its shine since its being made in Mexico now . I chose my duralast platinum over a optima yellow .

Thanks for sending me the link. I even called Overland and the sales guy said he doesn't know and they never tested it with other batteries!!! go figure.

Thanks again. This is great news.
