Re: battery change

Get the cheapest you can find. I'm into year 2 on a cheapie and I only got 2 years out of the OEM battery. So I'm already ahead.

Bad advice, go with the PC680 Odysey (spelling).

Don't go with OE Gel battery, too expensive and not worth the money.

Re: battery change

Greg I replaced my original battery at five years with another original equipment gel. The only reason I replaced it was age, it was still functioning well. I figured it comes out to about $20 per year, not bad

Re: battery change

Whatever you choose, I recommend a sealed unit. Much less corrosion on the terminals and no maintenance. There are some generic AGMs out there for about a hundred bucks.
