Thread: 15F battery

  1. #1

    15F battery

    Got my 15f all detailed up and maintainence done, just waiting on warm weather! Only thing I need is a new battery. Took the old one out and it was a cheap, Wal Mart one. Isn't it supposed to be a "sealed" battery? Any suggestions on where to order/get one? Does anyone have the exact battery code or number? I looks as if you can spend $50 or $150 depending on quality I guess. It's a 2006 15f. Thanks

    Yuasa YTX20L-BS is the battery your 15F came from factory with. They are about 80-100$. They will last 5 years easy as long as you trickle and do not let it die. A friend has one 7 years old. He keeps it on a trickle charger that detects a full charge and allows a small drop before it kicks on again. Delta Maintainer I believe.
    That is the trick to getting them to last. Particularly in cold weather. Put on charger at least 10-12 days per month.

    ***EDIT*** What I really mean here is a maintainer or trickle charger. Should operate around 1.5 amps.

    The Odyssey is an excellent battery. It costs a bit more than the Yuasa. Life is similar and sometimes better if cared for.

    Bottom line is sealed battery and take care of it.

    Good luck sir.

    Ding Ding Ding, we have a winner!
    A charger is one of the best investments you can make for these skis.

    The other things that are nice about the odyssey battery:

    They do not self discharge. No maintainer is needed.

    They put out more power than a conventional lead acid battery.

    They are a dry cell and non spillable.

    They have no vent, and are completely sealed.
