Where to buy optima battery for RSX?

Hi! I am looking for a place to buy optima battery for my RSX type-s. Do anyone know where I can get them cheap in lower mainland or is it better to drive down to the states to buy them?



Thanks

Unless you have a sound system that draws a lot of power, spending $170 on an Optima is throwing monday away.

You can get Optima from Costco or Walmart.. honestly no other places can beat their prices and freshness due to their volume.

To the OP: Make sure you check the Optima website to see if they even make the size you want.

I'm pretty sure Soundworks gets their Optimas from PB,who knows,I could be wrong.

Considering Polar batteries supplies pretty much half the battery stores with batteries.

I picked up my Yellowtop D51 from them,they were the cheapest place around that carried it,believe me,I called alot of places.
