Default optima batteries

looking to change my leisure battery for an optima or two just not sure where to get one from or which one to go for.
most of the yellow tops available seem to be around 55 Ahrs which could be a little low (or expensive If I need 2 of them)
any help as ever gratefully received.
cheers
Ben

adverc.co.uk have a good site for batteries etc

I would get 110Ah varta semi-traction jobs if you want good quality at a decent price. Had mine for 3 years plus and they get zapped regularly.
