I have this battery from Batteries Plus. No problems, no complaints. I have a winch, driving lights and blinkers and I haven't had a problem with this battery yet.

Hands down, no quesitons asked, Odyssey is the best battery around. Pay the extra $$$ and get the best. I had to replace the battery in my DS 650 after 6 months and went with the Odyssey. It lasted 3 more years with absolutely no issues until I sold the machine.

I've had to replace the battery in my sons Sunl ATV two times. The last time i got the battery from batteries plus and have had no problems since. Can anyone help me? Today we went out to start the ATV and as we were cranking it it suddenly went dead, as in no lights, no cranking, nothing. It is extremely cold out so i thought maybe we blew a fuse. Has anyone had similar problems? The battery is kept charged all the time by a trickle charger. It is the 110 CC.
