Odyssey Battery Purchase?


Micky

Recommended Posts

I need to order a new battery.

Where is the best place and price to order the Odyssey PC 680

Or is there any other brand recommendation?

Thanks, Miklos

There was a discount code you enter at checkout - I think save20 or something like that to get 20%. I purchased last month and these guys had the best price. No hassles with delivery.

Try the Panasonic LC-X1220P: 20Ah, sealed lead acid.

Good choice for about $75, and free shipping if you pay by check at Digikey.com

 

I don't know anything about it, but at under 75% the cost (after shipping), it might be worth a shot?

Specs are 18Ah, right dimensions, $36 plus shipping. ($12 to San Diego, or $22 to Boston) 58-GPS-1218 at gruberpower.com

 

No affiliation with either one - I've done business with Digkey on a couple of occasions, and have always been happy with the service and response time. The Gruber outfit I have no experience with, but I've seen them discussed on other boards, and haven't seen any unusual complaints...

 

I WILL tell you THIS, however: Do NOT do business with "Motorcycle Batteries USA" under any circumstances.

They charged my credit card when I placed the order, but I never got a battery. I tried contacting them repeatedly for the next couple of months, and received neither refund nor response from them. I finally had to dispute the charges on my card to get any satisfaction....

I switched to the PC680 a year ago and noticed much more starting power. I think I'll buy another one whenever it needs replacing. I hate that feeling out in the middle of no where when it's time to go and you hear a weak battery trying to crank that awful sounding starter on an 04RT.

The Odyssey is an excellent battery to be sure (and in fact I have one installed right now)... but then again it is more than double the price of a standard AGM replacement (such as the Universal Battery UB12220, available from many online sources for under $50) and I'm not sure that the Odyssey really provides double the life/performance to justify the cost. I'm trying the lower-priced spread this time around and see what happens. Maybe I'll end up back with the Odyssey, but then again maybe I'll get nearly the same life out of a standard AGM battery at less than half the cost. We'll see...

If you have a Batteries Plus store near by, you might want to give those people a call. I purchased my Odyssey from them about a year ago at a price that was cheaper than many online dealers and competitive with the others.

Thanks for the tip and amazingly enough I do have one nearby, but their price is $146. Even if they will match the cheapest online price of about $120 that's still more than twice as expensive as the alternatives.

 

Again, maybe the value is there and maybe it isn't. Guess I'll find out...
