Ok, I went and got a yellow top !
It was the only size group they had, and it was 750 CCA and 120 min
But as I am suspecting with all these batteries, the + and - are on opposite
sides to what we need.
Any wisdom ???
BTW the yellow top looked more appropriate for my needs. High current
accessories and long not used periods.
I hope it is a good choice.
BTWW, what where the prices you guys got you batteries for ?
