Thread: GP1300R Battery
04-21-2014, 05:37 PM #1
Just had a couple batteries die over the winter. Looking to get replacements. I was going to buy the Power Supply units but saw another dry cell with 18 month warranty. Have you guys tried the Pirate Batteries they are approximately $20 cheaper with a 18 month warranty. What are your thoughts? Any information helps.

Never heard of pirate but I bought a Wal-Mart AGM battery over 3 years ago and it has been flawless. Never seen a charger once, even in the winter. Whatever you do make sure you get an AGM battery, the vibration and abuse they take in PWC's destroys the regular lead acid types after a year or two.

My suggestion is to not buy the cheapest battery you can find. Instead, buy the BEST battery available. Install it, treat it properly, and you can expect it to perform for years.
Deka manufactured factory sealed AGM batteries are my preference. Excellent durability, strong starting power, well made. Sold under the Deka brand and also sold with a number of other brand names. Recognizable by the red plastic cap on the battery post with two brass ring spacers and two screws.
Search on GreenHulk for Deka ETX16 for more comments and accolades.
