    It depends on what you need a battery for. If you have a big stereo, lights, winch, or something that draws a lot of power, you probably should go with the Optima Yellow top, Die Hard Platinum or similar.

    If not, a battery is what it is, don't over think it. Look for the best price/warranty at auto supply stores in your area.

    I got a Duralast Gold for $85 from AutoZone... It came with an 84 month warranty.

    Have had one in my Camry since Mar 04 and was told this past weekend when I had the oil changed, that the CCA aren't what they should be and I need to replace it....

    I'm not complaining... the original battery croaked at 4 1/2 years in the middle of texas. Even before they told me about the battery saturday, I was expecting to go out one morning and it not start. I'll get a new one probably next weekend.
