  1. Some what related: I had bought an Optima yellow top about 12 years ago and it's still going strong, couldn't be happier with the purchase. It seems though that the Optima batteries aren't what they used to be, my local NAPA says they see about an 80% return rate.

    Have you heard of, or suffered from, a similar story? (looking for a recommendation, not an endorsement)

    I'll happily pay way more for a product that's worth the price but I have issue with paying too much money for something that has a higher failure rate than a Harbor Freight clearance sale.

    1. I haven't bought one yet. But damn, learning what the return rate is... that is a damn good idea before purchasing! 12 years on your purchase? Well I'll be... that is 3 times longer than any regular battery I ever heard of!
