Please note that NAPA also sells Optima-like batteries. I'm not sure of 
price comparison. I couldn't get the local store to admit that Optima makes 
the batteries for them, so I don't know the manufacturer.

The key difference is the spiral winding keeps the battery together in 
situations with lots of vibration, such as cross country racing or rally 
duty. For non-demanding sit-around-still-all-day service, a regular battery 
may well be equivalent in self-preservation :)
