Re: Dual Purpose v. Starting Battery

I don’t think I should have a problem. The most I would use the battery with the engine off is the stereo maybe for an hour or less. I also have the batteries on a continuous battery maintainer, maybe that’s why my last pair of Optima-brand batteries lasted over nine years.
