I bought this as a starting battery for my boat. Unfortunately, it went bad just after the warranty expired. Optimas are hit or miss. I have a deep cycle Optima on my boat that is from 2010! For the price, a little more consistency is expected. I would buy a cheaper battery if it fit on my boat, but I can't find one that is as small as the Optimas

                Used this battery as a direct replacement for a dying battery in my 2005 GMC Canyon. I've only had it installed for a month now, but it's made plenty of difference so for, most notably in how fast it turns over my engine on 0* mornings. I don't think I'm ever going back to a normal battery after this!!!

                    Original battery on boat lasted 11 years and was still going strong - it was replaced as a matter of service life expectancy. Replacement Marine DieHard lasted 1.5 yrs - no contest!

                              My old optima died so I bought a new one and when I installed it it was dead and took it back and they said it was bad. The next one that I was warrantied was dead also when I got back and installed it.

                                I had to buy a bunch of adapters at the local autoparts store to make the cables reach, but it does fit nicely in my car so I'm happy. I wish the posts were closer to the edge of the battery and not centered near the middle.

                                    Hi K, I'm glad to assist you! This Part No. 34M-1050 is a starting battery only. For your application you would want to use one of our Deep Cycle Blue Top batteries. We do offer the Deep Cycle Battery Part No. D31M, D27M and D34M online. Depending on size and weight restrictions for your boat any of these should work. You will get the most run time from the Part No. D31M. Run time for a deep cycle application is amp hour rating of battery(s) divided by the total amp draw.
