Most of the exide stuff is made out of the country in forgein factories. Where the optima is made here in denver. Go figure. Any how have you look at some of the dry cell batteries? I will look a little latter or see some of david Morse's stuff on IH8MUD in the 80's section (just remembered Stinger batteries), two will fit in the same spot as one orginal battery, but more money. The stinger design was orginally for helicopters. I do not like regular lead acid batteries for the corrison they cause (or may be I am lazy and do not want to clean the battery box every 6 months), but I have had less problems with them over their life span with failing and charging issues. later robbie
