Autozone 80AH battery for E36??? What is your battery's Amp/HR rating?
While comparing batteries and their reserve capacities and amp/hour ratings (Mine is 20AH) I went to the Autozone website and they claim that their Duralast battery for an E36 has an 80 amp/hr minutes reserve capacity (mashing two battery concepts into one) rating. I even e-mailed them to confirm if this was a misprint, pointing out that amps/hour and reserve capacity are separate measurements and that their ad for the battery was confusing. A rep contacted me to say that the site had a misprint, that the battery was a 80AH battery with a 75 minute reserve capacity!
Just curious if anyone else has something markedly greater than 10-30 AH? That seemed like hogwash to me; an amp/hr rating like that seems more like one for a 18 wheeler battery than a passenger car. If not then Duralast (which IS a good battery) should be a battery of choice, particularly for those of us experiencing slight but manageable parasitic drains.
Thank you for your patience. According to our category managers the website is supposed to say Amp Hour rating of 80 and a Reserve Capacity rating of 75 min. We have already sent this to our catalog department to have it corrected in our website.
