Replacement battery for 2009 CobaltSS

I have seen many references for an Optima Yellow top battery or Carquest NGT Extreme battery for the Cobalt. However, when I go to their websites I cannot find the right battery. Which model number are people using for the Cobalt. My battery is not standing up to the Upstate NY winter and the PC that I have in it.
Please give me the model number that fits. I would prefer that it does not push up on the tire cover.
Thanks.

Is this battery better than the yellow top?
I found it direct from Amazon.

I ended up going with an OEM battery. Was cheaper than anything else available, and i don't have any kind of audio equipment.

What do u think bout the Odyssey PC925 vs the Kinetic? The Kinetic is $30 more. Is it worth it?

mmm it looks bigger so might be better. IDK the cca/ah of the kinetik off the top of my head but just compare those two and then whatever is better. AH is the most important number you want to look for when comparing batteries. Overall they are both good companies that make good products. if the specs are similar then sure get the odyssey. Just double check the width isnt too big to fit in the car

Actually its a lot smaller and Kinetik has the HC800 for $115. The AH is 36 and the Odyssey is only 28. Cant find the CCA tho. Do you know what the stock AH is? Is the HC800 enough by itself? Im on the stock system with the AVIC-F700BT so im just lookin for somethin that i can sit in the car wit for a lil bit.

And im only runnin the front two speakers because the wiring got messed up before. You helped me wit that but im just too lazy to do it lol. I actually did find a wire that was kinda melted coming from the plug to the right of my feet. I dont think thats for the speakers so i have no clue wat happened.

ah= amp hour meaning how much amprage the battery will take to be drained in an hour. Most HU-s have a 10a fuse on them so assuming all you have running electriclly in the car is the HU then off the kinetik on a full charge you should be able to listen to it for 2 hours and have just barly enough to start the car (that doesnt mean the battery is always fully charged, and thats a big of a guestimate)

Alright thanks man. I think il replace the stock battery with the Kinetic HC800. Should be good enough for me.
