What battery you using?

My battery decided that 2020 was too much and didnít make it to 2021. What deep cycle is everyone running? I have fogs, light bar, and ditch lights wired directly to the battery.

If you keep the engine running, the alternator is more than enough to power every thing you have, thus a deep cycle battery is not needed.

However, if you are not running the engine, and you have loads like a refrigerator you need running all the time, then a deep cycle would be needed, but usually as a secondary battery.

When I look for a new battery, I always look for capacity (amp hours), cold cranking amps and warranty. The battery omr gh recommended would be great in that regard.

Many people have gotten batteries from Costco (Interstate batteries) that are good, and I have gotten batteries from lowly Walmart because they had ones that met my criteria (capacity, CCA, warranty).

I've learned to avoid Bosch batteries (Pep Boys) because I have had really bad experiences with them failing even during warranty.

I use a Northstar NSB-AGM27F. It's a bit larger than the stock battery but fits without issue in the stock location. You do need to either charge it regularly or use one of the voltage boosters to keep it healthy and prolong it's life.


NSB-AGM27F

Same here, and my battery issues are gone now that I do not drive daily. Batteries Plus had it on sale plus an additional 10% off plus %30 rebate.

The Odyssey fits the OEM Tray with the bottom adapter ( order the adapter with the Battery its like 5 bucks). Takes 5 mins. to install.

One and Done.

unless you are using your lights for prolonged periods with your engine off, these shouldn't require the use of an AGM battery

After 11 years, my Deka/East Penn made Advance Auto Parts battery finally is dead.
Bad cell.
(I do maintain my batteries, and it is wet because I had cleaned it prior to placing on a charger which states dead cell)

I have a Deka Ultimate in everything else.
I think their TOTL line name changed though.

Still OEM at the moment, but in the cold, starts are not turning over as quickly as last year.

I have usually gone with Interstate in the past.
