    I only buy Die Hard Gold batteries, outstanding warranty and great service when at a Sears! My two trucks sit out all night long every night of the nasty cold MN winters and have NEVER been left with a battery that wont fire the truck the first turn.

    I've got an Interstate Battery.. Installed it a year ago, but not sure what CCA it is..
    I've always used Interstate Batteries.. and I've always ended up getting rid of the car before I had to replace the battery again!
    The Honda dealership I worked at for a couple years always always had us them in cars that came in that weren't Hondas.. Never once saw one come back either.. They are really good batteries from what I've seen..

    However.. I worked at Pep Boys for a couple years.. They sold Energizer and Bosch batteries.. Those were always coming back within 6-18 months of being purchased..

    I run a battery from a place around here called Rocky's Battery. I believe it is either a 660 or 700 CCA. I bought one of these to replace the original one in my truck 3 years ago, when the original kicked the bucket after 7 years. I left a light on and killed the thing twice within 12 hours, so I decided I'd just pay the difference on their warranty and get a new one. The first one held up well whenever I used my truck's stereo for long periods of time at parties, so I'm pretty happy with them. I will be setting up a dual system in my next truck so I can run more accessories without having to worry about the battery.
