Hello,

I am needing 3 new batteries. I want to go with AGM's this time. I am trying to compare Optima Blue tops and BPS pro qualifiers.

Optima D34M 185.00 each from Amazon Prime. 2 year warranty. But the warranty might be difficult to use.
BPS Pro XPS Qualifiers 34 size. 210.00 each from BPS. 1 year warranty then prorated. Warranty easy to use.
Others...?

Thank You for your opinion,
Bryan

After deciding on which AGM brand, call the company to make sure your charger will properly
support their perspective battery, some AGM requires a different charging profile, which is why
many AGM s fail after a couple of years.

Good info....I have 3 optimas and they recommend a charger with no more than 10 amps per bank

Always buy cabellas AGM on sale and they have always lasted from 4 to 6 years. That is guiding. Use in Motor home coach battery . First one lasted 6 years and the one in there is over 4 years old. The series 27 are regular priced at 269. I have never give more than a 179.
