more than one year from a battery ?
99 zxi 1100 and new battery last year, wet cell es16b from wallyworld lasted 56 weeks and dead, charged during storage through off season.
recommend a good battery for 2 year use under $100.00 ? if possible !

Get the Odyssey PC625 for around 110 bucks. I believe it has a 3 year warranty and should last longer than that. Also has a lot more zip than the standard wet batteries. I have one and will never buy anything else again.

O'Reilly's Auto Parts sells some batteries that have real battery terminals, not those stupid little cages that you put a nut into. You can make it last a long time if you put a trickle charger with a timer on it and charge for 15 minutes per day. My original Yuasa battery lasted 9 years!

Most batterys only have a limited warranty-The cheaper battery you buy the more often you will replace it,Also the less cranking amps you will have..i would spend the $85 at Watcon/or buy the Odyssey..It will cost you less in the long run..
I have one of the AGM battery's John posted & it has been excellent for the past 2 seasons..i do maintain it during the winter months but barely ever needed longer than 30 minutes on the charger(at 2 amps)..Great battery!
