I'm not going to get into a long dissertation about which battery is better than the others, but I will say this. For now, SMC is getting my money. You could have posted any other brand there against SMC for all it matters. Again, I'm not going to get into a long winded reasoning, but I think they're doing good things and their batteries deliver.

+1 for the SMC batteries.
Prior to using them I was using another "tier one" battery manufacturer and after doing my own testing (at the track) I am replacing all of my batteries for SMC.

I will say this. I don't even think this is a fair comparison. It would be like comparing a Corvette to a Cavalier.

Smc Hands down. Not because of name. Because of Quality,Performance and outstanding customer service.
