Has anyone tried this battery from Costco? It has double posts for aux connections.

$83 and a Costco warranty, hard to go wrong with that.

Or grab the Optima they sell. No question returns.

They did in Woodbridge and Chantilly about a year ago. They probably had too many returns from me!

Thanks, I'll call Chantilly. Close to work for me. What color and size do you recommend?

I"ve never had an issue with the kirkland/costco batteries, and I've been using those or the Sam's club Batteries for years.

Russell - why dont you just go to the battery store in Leesburg, on King St?

OPTIMA SUCK DOGS BALLS - used to be good, but not anymore.

These guys at Battery Warehouse carry any - and will even put it in for you if you want....come with a warranty as well.

I am leaning almost to agree with that. My recent experience has been that the redtops suck. I've returned two to Costco no questions asked, and my current one is heading out after about 18 months. Granted they are beat to death. I also carry a blue top and don't have any issues with it.

Russell, I've used Kirkland batteries for 10+ years in multiple vehicles and have never had an issue. My 90SW is on the same battery for over 5 years even with the winching and bumping around off road. I see no need to try another source.
