I want a light weight battery for my car but would I was thinking about picking up a Duracell for my Fiancée's Impreza. The specs look good for the price and it's group 35 but I don't see any reviews for it though as far as reliability.

Most modern batteries are all pretty good. If it is going in a DD just buy what is in your budget. I shit on Optima a lot but my application is industrial and severely abusive. Really they are fine.

Duracell looks like is made by East Penn. They should be a good choice if you can get it at a decent price.

Should be a great Superbowl. I've been a SF fan my entire life, going to my first games at candlestick at age 9. I think Mahomes is the best QB in football right now, and Kittle and Kelce are the best tight ends. Looking forward to the game.

my understanding is the main issue with agm type batteries like the optimas are that they require more methodical cycling to maintain full charge capacity across their lifespan, and due to the gell agm style, they aren't excellent at short-medium high draw usages. there was a roadkill episode on youtube where they very quickly talked about how they used optimasin all their builds because they got them for free from optima as 'bad' warranteed batteries, they'd cycle them a few times from full charge to zero, and be good as new.

He just misses @Tcoat. Gotta have an avatar that represents his mood accurately.
