ODYSSEY Extreme Series 12V 68 Ah Battery Model 34R-PC1500T
(Group 34 with tin-plated brass SAE automotive posts - reversed terminals)
Odyssey batteries deliver the massive starting power, rapid recovery, and amazing deep cycle capability that today's vehicles demand.
Odyssey batteries have been designed to keep up with all of the electronics available in today's vehicles. Built with pure virgin lead plates, Odyssey batteries have more plates packed in versus lead alloy in most batteries. This leads to much more power - twice the overall power and three times the life of conventional batteries.
I started using Odyssey batteries over 7 years ago. I own a BMW motorcycle which apparently eats batteries. I had gone through OEM BMW batteries every 2-3 years since 1994. They had the only battery that fit it place with that high of a cranking amp. It's now going on 8 years since I purchased an Odyssey battery for that bike. Spins it over like a sewing machine, even after an entire North east winter, a few hrs on a charger and it starts up like new again. Since then I have put Odyssey batteries in my ATVs, Snowmobiles and even the lawn mower (I switch batteries around from season to season). The last one I purchased was for a 2008 BMW X3, another battery eater. Spins like crazy on cold starts and I expect 7-8 years of service from this one as well. Battery Mart sells them for a great price and fast shipping too
Exactly the right brand of battery (Odyssey) and the correct size. My MB Gwagen has a 6 cylinder turbodiesel and it needed more cranking amps. It has it now and I feel confident that it will be better than the dual battery system that was in it before.
