I considered this, but was concerned about the lack of a vent tube connection. The battery in the W210 is located in a closed compartment under the rear seat. There's also a huge fuse block right next to it. So hydrogen buildup is definitely a concern. Optima says their battery will not vent hydrogen under normal conditions, but they admit it is possible. Does anyone else worry about this?
