Default X2Power Batteries from BatteriesPlus

I am thinking about buying one tomorrow for the Xterra.
The Duralast gold has been a good battery for what it is but its time to get a battery that can hang with extra accessories.

X2Power Battery with the blue top.
5 year warranty
$240

Any one have any experience with these batteries?

Your just prolonging your battery failure out to 5 years ( plus or minus X years )

why not get the dual battery mod done so this impending failure does not slow you down John?

oh, and start the calendar countdown now


ALL BATTERIES FAIL


I'm just sayin......

That battery looks suspiciously like the Die Hard Platinum:


I have a Platinum. It's AGM. And it has a 6 year replacement warranty and 10 year prorated. And I paid 209 for it.

One battery at a time, dropping 500 on batteries would be a lot easier if I actually had time to get out into the desert now and then.

I almost bought one today, but wanted to look at a few more options before I absolutely had to buy tomorrow.

The Platinum is selling for $219 with a 4 year free return warranty and 100 months prorated warranty.

The X2power is $240 with 5 free return warranty and I can not remember prorated duration but it was similar.

You can also get a version with extra terminals up top for accessories but the warranty drops to 4 years.

I've got about 2 years on my diehard platinum, and so far, so good. That being said, I fully expect to use the free replacement warranty within the next two years, as the desert heat kills them quick.

The X2 Power battery is made by East Penn (Deka), and the Diehard Platinum is made by EnerSys (Odyssey).

East Penn (Deka), is that the same as Northstar?

No, it looks like NorthStar makes their own batteries. They have a distribution agreement with Exide batteries.

Here is a good link showing the connection between battery brand names and the manufacturers that make them:
