PostSubject: New Orbital Battery for Caprice or Impala   Wed Jul 15, 2009 9:09 pm

While my car was being worked on we discovered my red top Optima battery was not holding a charge. Battery was only 18 months old. I installed a new AC Delco into the Impala knowing when I returned the Optima I would receive my $169.00 refund. Wrong! Today I returned the Optima and after 45 minutes they told me it had a bad cell, no kidding! Would NOT refund me the money only replace the battery. What am I going to do with two? Not their problem. So I exchanged it for an "Orbital" battery that is the same design and size as the Optima though 770 CCA at 0 degrees F. Optima is built by Exide, the worlds oldest and most experienced eletric battery storage manufacturer. Designed for peak cranking power during the initial 3-5 seconds of use, when it's needed most. During this perior the Orbital puts out the equivalent of a 1000 CCA convential lead acid unit. The cost of the battery was $169.00. I would very much like to get at least $100.00. Remember this is new, never installed and I have the receipt effective warranty starts today and is good until July 16, 2012 for full replacement. Sorry I will not ship. Let me know if interested.

no kidding...that sucks, but that is a great deal for that battery, I hope someone takes you up on it. If I was in need of one I would have, hell if I had seen this two weeks ago my buddy would have bought it for his 57 pickup he put one of my LT1s in...

Good luck with the sale!

I still have the battery guys, I would say make me an offer but I would no doubt have to give it away! Seriously, a great battery at a super discounted cost. If someone from the club needs it and does not have the cash we can talk.
