I got the Optima 6V (cylinder) battery many years ago that is still working fine.

IMO it is the best but I won't buy it again because of the odd shape. Also a sealed battery so less rust.

I found if the VARTA runs flat you can throw it away.

Given all the issues mentioned here, and cost, I've decided to store my 6V components and run my 63 1200 Beetle at 12V.
