    Hi everyone,

    I am going to replace my original battery very soon, had to charge it for awhile yesterday before I went out. So, other than HD, are there other brands to consider. Just trying to save a few bucks. Thanks!

    Thanks Jack, they are one I am considering. I'm mostly concerned about fitment, I guess I'll have to measure the old one.

    Thanks hillbilly, Their brand is Maxx, I have not heard of it before. If I can't find a suitable substitute I'll go with HD. Been reading up and the HD is only 270CCA, which is their spec. I have read others, the Battery Plus is as high as 310. I suppose reserve CCA wouldn't hurt.

    I use Interstate Batteries but I am also a dealer for auto batteries so I'm kinda partial.

    I got my last battery at Carquest. I went with a premium AGM battery, direct fit $97.
