    Which battery Deka or Odyssey ?

    Going to order a high quality battery, and both have been mentioned. Which one is suggested for 2015?

    Actually it looks like the Deka is 125CCA more than the Odyssey, and 1AH more. It can also be had cheaper.

    Any reason to get the Odyssey instead of the Deka?

    I prefer the Deka factory sealed AGM batteries. ETX16 size is used in all Polaris watercraft.

    Odyssey battery reputation seems to have declined in recent years.

    Deka, hands down. I've used both. The odyssey isn't worth the price.

    Actually, I think it's Deka ETX16L (The L places the terminals in the proper location.)

    Thanks for the info guys. I'll post where I find the best place with shipping.

    Actually Battery Mart via Amazon had the best deal. I was able to get a 2 year warranty for $7 more and I was able to burn some Amazon gift cards I had. Win win, now if only I can get my ski to start :/

    You can buy one from advance auto parts online and do a store pickup. Use code trt30 for 30 percent off.
