Hey guy's my first post on this subject, I was wondering if anyone has used optima batteries and used interstate batteries for their trolling motor I was wondering if the optima is worth the price difference between the two?
Dawg, we use two 6 volt golf cart batteries from Costco. They are more difficult to use but last a lot longer between charges for us. Side note, I had a Optima in my old truck for 5 years and gave it to my son when I traded it in. He got another 2 years on it and traded in his truck. I don't think the blue or yellow Optimas have the warranty length the red does.
I started using them in my vehicles 4-5 yrs ago to eliminate corrosion. To me they are worth the money for that reason alone but they seem to last a little longer in the AZ heat also. I have the red tops in my F250 and Jeep.
I used to buy walmart batteries but the last couple of times I bought the optima batteries for my jeep wrangler and my Ford F-350. I have been pleased with my results and will consider the optima again.
hello,I am on my 5th season on Optima blue which I gambling on not dieing.but I used another one for 4 seasons prior to current one.price sure has gone up since orginal in 2007. used them for start,fishfinder&troller motor.I like them and have to shop for new price.
I used to work for the company that makes the Optima/Interstate batteries. We used to get a really good deal on them.
I had them for my trolling motor. We also made the Interstate batteries and in 6 years of using both I thought the Interstate marine deep cycle batteries had more run time and lasted much longer. That surprised me.
If I had to pay full price I wouldn't be buying the Blue Tops.
