Its time for a new battery. I have no complaints about the Odyssey battery I have been using. I have read where people were having problems with the newly purchased Odyssey batteries, and it made me consider going to the sealed Gill battery. Anyone recently bought a particular brand of battery they have been happy with? In reading the data on the Gill and Odyssey, I don't see a huge difference in the two. Maybe 50 CCA on one battery, but a little higher MCA on the other.

I replace a 10 year old Odyssey earlier this year with another Odyssey and have had no problems. I'm not sure that I really needed to replace the battery as it was still holding a charge and cranking the engine just fine.

ok, thanks. I might as well go back with another Odyssey then. My local "Batteries Plus" store used to carry Odyssey batteries, but I just went in today and they don't carry them anymore. I hate paying those shipping charges.
