964 Batteries

Do any of you have experience with X2 batteries?

You pay a premium to get anything from Batteries Plus. You can get an AGM with near the same specs for less. My 964 isn't a daily driver, and is hard on batteries, even with a maintainer.

The "correct" battery for 964 is group 91, which isn't common. Group 48 size battery will fit, but is about 15mm taller, which only slightly interferes with the front cover.

There's the minimalist approach as well...

I have a similar setup. In service for 6 years now, no issues!

Rennline mount
Odyssey 925T
Battery Tender Jr. - low power consuming unit - CA approved
Pigtail fixed installation (like that these came with a fuse)

Thanks,

G

I had a follow up question, so here more detail on my setup:

PC925T-A
Part #: 0765-2020B0N0
Weight: 23.8 lbs

Rennline mount:
Part# EL36.35
Description: Rennline Battery Mount Kit Odyssey 925-1

The best thing is how reliable this is. Never felt it was undersized either in terms of cranking amps.
