i like the fact that maybe the walmart series might not be the best but the most easily returned/replaceable for anywhere in the country.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think there is a walmart battery that has the necessary cranking amps for an Opti.
I have a 06 200 Opti and I have an Everstart Maxx Maxx-65N from Wally World and it's 1000 CCA
I googled this battery quick and while I can't find much technical info (because its just walmart selling), there is a ford bronco forum and another ramdom forum that talk about it and both say that it has 850 CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) and 1000 (Marine) Cranking Amps. If thats true then according to Mercury you don't have the battery for the job. Of course before my current battery I had a 24g Interstate that I remember only had like 700 or 800 CCA and my engine started every time with no hiccups. Can you check what it says exactly on the battery so people aren't mislead?
I did before I posted. But to make sure I went out and looked again before posting this and I guess your right. It's kind of missleading. The government or a lawyer must have made the label for it. The amperage is very big and the CA and CCA and temp rating is very small. This is what it looks like. My tie down strap covers the CA@32'F And what I saw was 1000 CCA. Sorry, guess I'm going to have to get a new battery. Thanks, Daren
