    I purchased my first Odyssey battery in 2004. It lasted me 7 years and 3 ski's until it wouldn't hold a full starting charge after a few days of sitting. Me and a friend replaced ours with new Odyssey batteries in 2011. They were dated 2010 made. We both got 2 seasons out of them until neither would hold a full starting charge for a few days of non-use last summer.

    I replaced mine last summer with a deka agm. So far I like it. Has 50cca more than an Odyssey. Better terminal mounting than the fragile posts of the Odyssey. Time will tell how many years I get out of it.

    I hope my friend replaces his with a deka agm this summer. It sucks jump starting ski's at boat ramp.

    The Duralast Gold at Autozone is about the best price I have found on the Deka. Right around 90 bucks for the 16 size. The 30 size is around 150.


    Hands down the Deka is better and I have 2 Odysseys.

    Those who vote for the Odyssey either work for them or have never used a Deka.

    I bought one of these last year and was really impressed with it's cranking power. And you can not beat the price when Amazon has them on sale.
    I have only used it for a year, so don't know how long it will last.

    I greatly prefer the factory sealed AGM batteries (Deka AGM is my current favorite) over the AGM batteries that come with separate acid bottle. Messing with liquid battery acid is not my idea of fun.
