How do you like them? I cant afford optima or other high dollar ones.

Don't buy, I bought one from Tractor Supply it lasted less than a year and then would not hold a charge. Took it back to Tractor Supply they accepted it but gave me nothing for it. I wrote the main company and never heard back from them. Told them I would do everything I could in my area to discourage anyone from buying their product.```

Not really a fan of Exide batteries. I would suggest look for an East Penn or a JCI battery. The BassPro batteries are made by East Penn (DEKA). JCI makes batteries for Interstate, Walmart, Delco and many others.

JCI is one of the best battery companies there is! I worked in their plant for 6 months while adding several additions and learned how batteries are made. It is amazing to see the same batteries get different cosmetics to show different batteries from different companies.

I agree. Stay away from Exide. I've had nothing but very poor experienceS with their batteries. Mainly from Tractor Supply too.

You might check out the deep cycle batteries at Bulbs and Batteries (formerly Batteries Plus). I've had good luck with their batteries. I've also had decent life out of Stowaway's.
If it ain't yours don't mess with it!

The boat yards here on the lake sell Exide and the owners go through a lot of them, some a new set very year. I'm sure poor maintenance has something to do with it, but I have never heard anyone say they were happy with the longevity of them.
I've used Delco Voyagers for years and had good results. Everyone has there are favorites.

I haven't had any issues with Exides, I've been running the current set for two years now without any problems. I guess from reading the responses I'm the lucky one. But I will keep using them as I had nothing but trouble with other brands.
