I vote you hang it from your ********* to cut down on your nutswinging until you actually get your car on the dyno.

How about you return it and get your core deposit money back.

Recycle. It's worth 5-10 bucks. Buy beer, drink. Throw empties at car.

Light tea candle, set on battery. Hook up charger. Stand far away until hilarity ensues.

Acquaintance of mine had a battery blow up on him when he unhooked the charger. Results were not pretty, but they saved his eyes.

Lay on your back and hold the battery over your face. Drop the battery on your face. Profit.

Whats that ya got there^^

Microwave. I've had tons of fun with a long cord and an old microwave. Paint cans, beer cans, cd's, brake clean, frozen turkey was the best. The paint can( with tiny pin hole) blew the door open. The turkey took awhile but in the end blew the case and door off.

Is this the battery that performed normally as far as you know and then was swapped for a new optima yellowtop that performed just as bad?

Turn it into a hat. You know, as a reminder to actually search for the real problem next time.

Or you could save and use, or return the yellowtop and use. Or sawsall.

Connect a heavy jumper cable directly between the positive and negative terminals.

Place a call to 911 to report a severe chemical burn and shrapnel wounds 2-3 minutes before you do this.

Did you ever have this thing load tested?

I vote you throw it in a campfire. Then you can watch it make pretty colored flames as it burns!

Batteries don't really pack enough energy to be entertaining. You're better off dropping it off at Home Depot recycling or a gas station or some ---- and then dropping a pack of Mentos in a diet coke 2 liter for fun.
