25% off H7 battery?

Was at Walmart today and noticed they had a H7 from July of 2015 discounted. Came to like 88 dollars. My 325i has a smaller interstate from 2011 that still cranks good, but I thought about replacing preventively. Think I should do it? I think Walmart is getting rid of the H7 size too. Thanks

No.

If your current battery is working well, it probably has several more good years left in it. If you bought this $88 dollar battery today, you'd need to float it on a Battery Tender 1.25A or Junior .75A charger the Entire time it sits. So that would be a no for me.

Curious you say that ... my battery just bit the dust, and I couldn't find any H7's at any of the 3 Walmarts in the area. Ended up with an Advanced Auto AGM battery (on sale and 30% off coupon).
