Mini battery is big and heavy and expensive. Why waste your money on one?

I went with an Odyssey 925 (AGM design) the same cranking power as stock but the reserve is not so hot...it weighs 24lbs....so about half of stock.....I do have to trickle charge it if i let the car sit for more than 2 weeks though.....but that kind of weight savings is substantial and the best bang for your buck if you consider how much some people spend on cf bootlids and hoods (or how much I spent on my titanium mid sections)

I'm glad I read this thread. I've been researching batteries forever and am down to 2 choices

9A34 deka or Braille B6034

Count me in if I can get a 9A34 deka.

Thanks!
