Anyone know a good source for Odyssey batteries?
they wont sell directly to the public but they will tell you the MSRP which is very expensive.
I used www.powerstridebattery.com
Spoke with Tyler.
No tax plus Free shipping
Jan, thanks, but did you actually follow that link?
They want all your info and then they'll have someone contact you!! Sounds like a scam setup to me, and next thing you know I'll have 10,000 SPAM emails in my box and people calling my cell phone at 1 AM to sell me used mattresses or something!
Having dealt with them in the past for our Project NMZ (they donated the battery) I can tell you that they they will not spam you. They will get you in-touch with someone as local as possible to you...
Roger that, will give it a try. Just hate being the gunea pig...
TOm, did you see my post????
Yeah, some reason it came though after Jan's...the 6 days shipping is what's steering me from that, but thank you for the link.
Don't we have a battery dealer/rep as a forum member???
they showed up in 4 for me.
Tom, I have been getting yellow top deep cyl AGM optma's for $100.00 let me know if you want one.
try batteries plus if you have one in your area
Problem is, I have two Odyssey PC1200's I pulled from the redfisher, and want to use them for the trolling motor on the LT20, and add a third battery for start/misc stuff like the livewell, GPS, etc.
Not sure if I can mix/match batteries, and also if the yellow-tops have the capacity of the PC1700
Trouble is, the PC1700 is big bucks...
Well now I'm completely stumped.
I called Yamaha and they reccomended NOT using an Odyssey battery as a start battery for either of the Yamaha outboards I have. They reccomend a lead-acid battery, specifically for my use the Deka dual-purpose would work well.
Unfortunately, the DEKA is a lead-acid, and I don't think I can mix that with the two Odyssey batteries for the trolling motor.
So now what? I've got two brand new PC1200's that it looks like without a miracle I won't be able to use???
Anyone have an idea that will work? Should I return my 3-bank charger and get a 2-bank for the odysseys and a seperate, 1-bank charger for the starter battery???
I see shallow water customs http://www.shallowwatercustoms.com/index.html a M/S advertiser lists odyssey batterys and deka. They are in Ft. Lauderdale I think just over an hour away. Might be local enough??
