Nope, I've had similar luck with optima batteries. I used to be a dealer for them but they would just not come back after going dead, and that is unacceptable for a high priced battery. They are great for high load applications, but every one that I ever had that went dead, was gone for good afterward. They made good on their warranty for most of them though, so I have to give them that.
