    What battery should I get?

    Okay so my battery finally took a dump. Bout time for me to get a new battery. What should I get? One of the optima red or yellow? What's the difference? Interstate? what do you guys use out there?
    I hear oddessy is better than optima nowadays?

    Oh 98 t/a m6 Chicago area. So it sees below 0 to 110F

    I got myself a Braille battery this time around. It's about half the size of the standard battery and weighs about half as much.

    Previous owner already had an 84 mo. Diehard battery in it and it definitely did not last that long.
