that's actually the battery that I'll be getting for my Civic because the PW:JDM intake requires a smaller/relocated battery. they said they chose it for their kits because it "best suited their needs" or something. but I looked around as well on the 8th gen Civic forum and I didn't find anyone on there complaining about it.

yeah some people say they need to keep a tender on them if the car is sitting more than a week or so but those people might have a draw somewhere and dont know how to fix them. i get a very good discount and batteries plus, so let me know if your going to be getting one.

yeah, im not putting one under the hood for sure, not going to put weight behind the rear tires, and a fill size one will not clear the roll cage behind the pass. seat. so... im making a battery box that will pass cert and fit behind the seat.

Im pretty sure thats the same one I sold to tye and its worked fine for him, and me when I had it. I have a very similar one now and its sat for 3 months and started up my car fine the other day even though it took forever because of the cold start and e85.

odysseys are very picky about their charging procedure, make sure you read up on it before you attempt to do it, i have one pc545 here thats crap from someone charging it like a regular battery.

i cant remember if its cheaper to get them from password or batteries plus either way i use them whenever possible. my buddy joe makes a nice aluminum case for em at his sheet metal shop too if you wanna save a couple bucks on the metal clad version.

They're like $160 for just the battery from PW:JDM. So Batteries Plus is definitely cheaper.

I have a DEKA 18L in my car.. 18 lb. 330 CCA
Braille are relabeled DEKA batteries. Odyssey are good too but more expensive and they didn't have the CCA I wanted

I haven't run my car much the last month, but I trickle charged the battery and dropped it back in last weekend. Cranked right up on the first one. I was kind of surprised. Before that, even around 0 degrees, it started the car no problem.

I got it locally from batteries plus.. It came with a 2 year warranty through them. So, if I have a problem they can replace it. I had to buy some SAE adapter terminals through them too.

Something like this:
Werker M6 to SAE Terminal Adapter

My car sat in the cold garage all week and it fired right up on the first crank yesterday.

I know I missed out on this thread, but I've had that battery for 2 years now and have no complaints.. I even have it tucked up under my dash.

sorry for being late but yea mine is only rated at like 300 CCA's or something like that but i tested it to be 400 CCA. it works great for the most part. when it gets cold (30* or so) it gets fussy but has never failed to start me. if it sits for several days it wont start but my year mustang has a problem with having draws, ford even put out a tsb on it. less than half the weight as the stocker, its a great buy.
