I've seen 5 Champion's purchased at Sam's Club fail in 29-41 months so I recommend staying away from that source. The Champion batteries are made by Excide.[/B]
Sigh, I was going to say this, I've made the same observation from experience. Nice price, nice warranty, HORRIBLE battery!

Optimas can't be charged normally though, I haven't researched those enough but for the same money I could consider it. At the moment though my Talon has a new Champion battery and the 300 with a new Duralast.
