Small difference but????

Bought 2 new agm batteries 2 years ago, one goes bad...CarQuest doesn't have same battery anymore, so i get a 775 CCA agm battery, in place of a NGM 800CCA....only 25 cca difference. Should i put it in , and call it good? Read ALOT of posts that say "change in pairs" but, they won't warranty a good battery(the other battery tests 100%)....Which makes sense, but now I have a mismatched set....big deal or no? Thanks for any advice, going hunting tommorrow for 4 days, and don't need that kind of grief off in the boonies...rsbhunter

batteries

Thanks for the quick replys....I didn't think it would be a big deal, but iv'e tried thinking before, and it doesn't always work out!! Anyways, when i replace these, it will be with lead acid batteries...was going to do it this time, but battery was 100% covered so......Think i'll get the auto zone golds...three year full replace, 8 year total warranty.....maybe by then, there will be lifetime batteries Thanks for the help...rsbhunter
