Do not buy the WestCo Glass Mat Battery if there is any chance of the battery going flat in the car !
The battery comes with instructions to only trickle charge a flat battery at 2 to 3 amps for up to 7days!!
In the car the alternator will supply loads of amps to a flat battery and this kills this particular type of battery ( see the other 1 star reviews)
The original Japanese battery lasted 12 years the WestCo now refuses to take or hold a charge after less than 3 years.
They may be ok if used daily but if like a lot of soft tops they remain unused for longer periods do not buy this battery.
