Anyone have the Odyssey battery in their ski?
My battery is starting to fade a bit and I'm thinking of going to the Odyessey PC625 for my SHO. Anyone have any experience with it?

I run them in all my skis. It's the first mod I do.

I picked up two a couple years back for use with a TL setup and would not reccomend them to anyone. One snapped off the positive terminal the very first time I installed it. They said I over torqued it but that is BS. I know my strength and I know what I'm doing; I barely snugged it up and it snapped. The second one lasted a couple years before a cell broke loose and it stopped working. Better than average service IMO but hard to swallow them not standing behind their product.
I will only buy Yuassa or DEKA AGM batteries now. I run the small 9lb DEKA ETX-9 in all my skis, (reccomend the ETX-16 for sitdowns).

I retired mine this year after 7 seasons of use. I bought it in 2004 for my 03 gpr. Then swapped it over to the 06 gpr in 06. Then on to the fz in 09. It was still good last season, but would lose quite a bit of charge in a month if unused. If used weekly, you couldn't tell it was 7 years old.
I recently snagged another new odyssey off ebay for $60/shipped. That will be it's replacement.

I use them all the time with no troubles. If you snapped off a terminal you torqued it down too much. I also run all two stroke skis total loss with no problems. I would NEVER EVER use a deka battery again on my life and Yuassa??????? Companies still make liquid batteries, WHO BUYS THEM????? lol.

I have them in both my GPR & SHO & they've been great. The one in my GPR is 5 years old & until recently would hold a strong charge for at least 3-4 months. It's starting to show its age but is still good to sit for a month or two without a charge. 20 minutes on the charger & it's good as new though.

Yuassa makes AGM batteries as well and some of their original ones were very well built.
Odyssey does make a good battery but as mentioned earlier, the plates can come loose from impact so they may not be the best for big wave jumpers.

I was about to buy one this afternoon but held off because of the different style of battery terminal. It had a side mount attachment to hook up terminals as well as the vertical posts. It looked like that attachment might bother the cable when using the vertical posts or maybe even stick up too far. Will this work or will I need to modify it? 2000 yamaha suv.
