Extreme Magna Power Battery..?

I need a battery and this Extreme Magna Power battery is available at my local auto parts store for $91.00..

It's the same size battery but I can't find any info. on it other then that it has 270 cca and a leak proof case..

They have that awesome Odyssey ($130.00) battery I can get and I do understand there's some work to install it..


Does anybody have info. on these Batteries..?

Are they junk..?

Do you own one..? How do you like it..?

Should I go threw the extra work and buy the Odyssey..?

What would you do..?

I got my Gel Cell battery at Wally world for about $70.00
It has not let me down yet.

You should go with a gell battery - just in case you filp, roll over or just ride hard - you don;t want the case to crack and leak acid all over the bike.

JMO - Good luck!

Worthy of some major consideration before buying a battery!

Magna Power should be from Advance Auto Parts, correct?

The batteries are fine, they are made by Johnson Controls and are of high quality.

Yes, Advance Auto has this batt.. It only has 17.5 ah, 270 cca, and my stock one thats not taking a full charge is cranking 351 cca.

I think I'll go with the Odyssey or the Deka battery depending on the price..

I found this over on Highlifter. User name is JJDu4.
" Get a Deka Power Sport battery.......their AGM and comparable to the odyssey but their not as expensive. Deka designed and supplies the OEM AGM batteries for Harley Davidson. They also took the design and put it in the standard Motorcycle and 4-wheeler battery line. You can get one for under $100. My family has been in the battery business for almost 30 yrs and this is our best selling motorcycle battery. If anyone on the forum is interested in one I can ship them since their sealed and if you send me a pm letting me know your a forum member I'll give you dealer pricing on them. The Grizzly 700 takes a ETX20L and I can ship one for $69.90."



This sounds like a good deal for the op looking for a battery

I bought the Battery Tender Jr for $31. I have the OEM battery in my 2008 Grizz and she cranks great. The Battery Tender will double the life of your battery...

I went ahead an ordered the Odyssey PC545MJ for my Grizz cause I do a lot of cold winter work at night using my winch plow lift, plow lights, salt speader, and other led flashing lights..

I was lucky to get almost 5 years out of the stock one using a battery tender..

My wife has a 05 Suki Eiger 400 4x4 and It's just a cruizer.. When her battery goes I'll take jfer on that offer if its stands then..

Thank everyone for ur help...!

Not to hijack this thread, but I have a question for you guys running a Battery Tender on your Grizz.

I have a 2004 660 Grizzly that I just replaced the battery in. I bought a Batter Tender Jr. and went to hook it up tonight, but never got satisfied with how it worked.

The directions stated that I should hook the positive lead to the battery, but the negative lead to the frame or engine block. What's wrong with just hooking it to the negative battery terminal? The positive terminal is small, covered, and hard to get to, but I made it work. What are you guys doing for the ground? The only frame visible under the seat is painted and I really don't want to scratch it off to hook up an alligator clip.

Thanks

So go ahead and hook the neg straight to the battery. Now enjoy your stay here, and all that is Grizzly.
Thanks for the warm welcome.

Why do you think the Battery Tender people want you to ground it to the frame? Just seems like a hassle to me.

I figured having it on the battery terminals wouldn't be a big deal (cause it's really the same thing), but figured I'd ask.

The battery is grounded to the frame. That is why they want you to ground to the frame. It just eliminates any possibility of a bad ground if you are using the item that the entire electrical system is grounded to.

If the battery is leaking gases, it releases hydrogen gas. A spark will ignite the gas. If a connection gets loose and sparks when the battery tender is switching on an off, then it could ignite the gases when nobody is around. Or at least that is what my guess would be. When you jump a car, you are supposed to connect to the frame for the same reason.

I agree, liability of the small possiblilty of explosion from H2.

Jteahan3165:

I had a gel cell battery in one of my past cars - I always left the radio on while I worked outside in the summer.

I noticed the gel cell goes dead fast- How do I explain this correctly, the battery would last 2 hours with no charge then the radio would just pick up static. So that battery went down, I tried to start the truck and nothing!. Work fine then completely dead.

A lead acid battery will recover enough to start the vehicle, where the gel cell will not. (I think it was the optima battery from autozone).

I use the extreme magna power battery in my motorcycle. Got it from O-Reilley Auto Parts. Works fine but I am on my second one. I just let the bike sit over winter without a charger.
