    What’s the current thinking on which battery to buy to replace the 12 V battery?

    Mine is old enough that I’m ready to replace it.

    I think it read originally people really liked the yellow Optimus if I remember correctly? What is the current thinking?

    Thanks so much

    I purchased the Yellow Top from Amazon. It was neither the highest price nor the lowest price for hybrid vehicles. Free delivery right to my door and it was a perfect fit. No troubles with it whatsoever

    I'm glad to see this questions asked again. There's 1000 posts on this already in the forum, but its time to get the latest thinking on this issue circa 2019.
