    I am not a Yamaha expert, but I think you want a factory sealed AGM type battery, not Gel.

    The Odyssey PC625 is an AGM battery, as is the Deka ETX16LM.

    AGM = Absorbed Glass Mat

    No, they aren't the same thing. A "gel cell" has "gelled electrolyte". An AGM uses regular liquid H2SO4 acid, and has fiberglass mats to keep it from sloshing around. I have an $85 AGM battery from Walmart...2 years old and its been working well so far. Have also used Die Hard AGMs with good luck.

    My last 625 lasted for 5 years with a total loss system before it died. I'd definitely recommend one.

    Eh, I'm in a good mood today. And, he seemed to do his own research before posting, which is all anybody asks on here.
