Thread: Battery

    Battery

    Can anyone recommend me a good battery that will last me a long time?

    I'm sick of replacing batteries every other year, even if I took them out of my '02 GTX-DI and put it in the cabinet or on my workbench and charge it once a month to keep it topped off.

    I've already had these:

    Yuma (came installed with the ski, lasted 3 yrs)

    Odyssey - worst one, did not last a year

    Deka - lasted almost 2 years (now won't charge past 6 volts)

    +2 on the tender.

    Two batteries on one tender over the winter with five year old Odysseys and they are still going strong.
