Re: C5


Just bought one of these for the C6 Z06, also added a battery disconnect switch
so it doesnt run flat in between runs.
Cheaper than an Optima, been through two in 4 years.

Re: C5


Apparently Optima have moved their production to Mexico and now the quality is not so good,

Re: C5


Try a Numax 78-630. I bought one on Ebay for around 60 or 70 pounds. The terminals are front mounting and you need to buy two short 3/8 bolts to attach your battery leads to the battery.

Re: C5


I have always used Optimas because they don't leak, they fit a treat and the terminal posts are in the correct position. Probably had about 5. Never had a problem and they always seem to be in stock.

To everybody thank you for all your kind advice.......come to think of it Barry,you did mention that to me when I bought your C3, so two timers required😊

Re: C5


Used these on my Chevy truck and my old C3, the one on the truck is probably 3 years old and it is left outside and sometimes not started for months on end a starts perfectly, great value!
