    I bought out polaris ranger back in 2013, it had an odyssey battery when I bought it and it lasted until last season at which point I replaced it with a NAPA Legend Premium AGM battery, that pos didnt last 1 year, took it out a few weeks ago and it was dead, jumped it and ran it for an hour, shut if off and wouldnt restart, took the battery to NAPA and they said it had a bad cell, but it was out of warranty, which was only 6 months. I've never heard of such a short warranty period. very disappointed with it. Purchased a new odyssey today for hopefully another 5 or 6 trouble free years. What batteries is everyone running in their SxS?

    You're probably going to be told you need a purpose built battery with a cage and not this SXS junk:D

    I keep all my toys on a tender. Seems to keep them alive

    I’m using the stock size battery in fact the stock battery. I keep it on a tender. Like said above that is key to keep them alive. I’ve had good luck with odyssey batteries

    I had the napa agm on a tender, I thought maybe that's what killed it, or it was just a dud. I've had good luck with the odysseys in the boat and sxs, should have just got it last season, but napa was close and cheap o_O
