Every Walmart I've been to has red, yellow and blue. I'm sure they have them out there.

Thanks, just went and got one, $200 (199.89) plus tax for the red top, 3 years warranty. remember to take your old battery in for the 10 core charge.

Costco sells the red top for $169.95. That's what it cost me.

Sam's club sells them for I think $140 compared to $200 at Walmart. One kick butt battery and at that price hard to beat.

don't have a membership at either Sam's or Costco, so I decided to go with Walmart cause they are everywere just in case anything ever happens to it.

Even at $200 I wouldn't go with another battery.
