I live about 5 miles from where these batteries are made at JCI, keep the original receipts for everything on my car, and I know the head of the battery's engineering department. I have no fear that I won't have a warranty honored.

It's just the deep cycle on the yellow tops. Like you, I don't hypermile, have accessory lights, have a winch, or have a giant car stereo so I don't care. All I wanted was the better cranking amps
