Optima Red top = Garbage

Returned my 4th one to advance auto parts on Saturday in 18 months.
All of them end up with a shorted cell. err

As an experiment I left the last one on my back porch for 6 weeks not connected to anything, tried to charge it and discovered a shorted cell.

As another experiment I've been running my Supra (Golf has a conventional battery) on a walmart lawn and garden battery for 2 months. It hasn't had an issue yet.

So be aware.
