Deka Intimidator Battery

Postby broncomarc » Fri Aug 08, 2008 1:49 pm

Anyone had any experience with a Deka Intimidator Battery? I had Autozone test my alternator and Optima. The alternator tested good, but the Optima reported 'charge and test again', when I had charged it overnight.

I've heard a lot of bad things about Optima recently, so I went searching for an alternative. I came across the Deka Intimidator Battery. It sounds pretty good and it's cheaper than Optimas. I ordered one today and it was $125 shipped.

yeah... ive heard some things recently with the optimas. that they arent using the same amount of lead in the packs as they were before.

the company sold out i think a few years ago and i think ever since the product has not been up to the same levels.

i have been thinking of just getting some generic marine battery for the cranking amps.

just my .02 :biggrin:

I gave up on Optima this year. I had all those starting issues that were just my less than a year old Optima. Took it back to Costco, got my money back and bought a Durlaast from Autozone for now. Let us know how it works Marc.
