    I went to start my 06 lbz duramax this AM and it would not start it was 20 degrees last night . I know it is time for new ones. Any recommendations? Also if one is bad and the other is still good can I get by with replacing just one? Or will the older battery cause problems with the new one?

    Ive seen these things advertised for years, but have never used one. Would this be a useful thing to have on a boat that does not like warm restarts? How can it recharge with a typical alternator? The entire starting system on my boat is brand new, but the thing just forces me to wait an hour...
