AGM for +$16 is a bargain. My last AGM (Optima Yellowtop) lasted 8 years, and we have real winters here which eat batteries for lunch.

I'm older with mostly older pals. It appears to me that the 'runners' have too many joint problems from the pounding. The swimmers and bikers don't. I think that brisk walking is pretty good.

The Platinum is most likely better quality, hence the 5 year warranty. Is that 5 year warranty prorated or not?
