A few people on here use them.... I've noticed that people who use them don't ever go back to something else.... Very popular for off road etc too... they seem to be a great battery but I've never personally used one so I can't say...

I use one, and they are definatly worth the money, mine has lasted longer then i can remember, headlights dont dim when the bass hits, and they look good. I would definatly recommend buying one.

I would def recommend optima... ive had mine for 5 years and still works like new never had to charge it or anything... its the kind of battery you dont let go when u change cars!!! Mines been in 2 Accords an 87 Chevy short wide and a S-10... definatly worth the extra dough... also mine was in my first accord when i jumped a hill, then blew a tire on way down, hit a tree at 100 mph... and flipped on its top... took it out and put it in my truck worked fine... A+

On the 91 Accord, it's been in ther going on 7 years already with not a problem...kind of hard to tell when it will go down.

are there any negatives to using a gel battery?

Nawww Thunder , no negatives..even when the battery finally dies you could probably take the Gel out of it and use it on your hair...
Oui, I think I'm funny sometimes [sm=happy046.gif]
