    Wal-mart Everstart 1000 Cold Cranking Amp. I've never had one let me sit. Ever. Even if you leave your radio on all night WITH an amp (trust me I've done it lol).

    Best thing about them is that there is a 3 year warranty (a no b.s. warranty) so every 2.5 years I take my battery back and get a new one for free. Plus they're only around $90 new

    +1 on walmart maxx batteries.
    Last one I had lasted to within 2 weeks of the 9yr warranty.

    3yr free replacement warranty too. Anything over 3yr gets pro-rated.

    They're made by johnson industries who make batteries for a lot of major companies too.

    I've heard a lot of bad stuff with the new optima batteries too. At 2x or more than the price of other batteries is a big turn-off too.
