Re: anyone had to buy a battery yet?

Mine was replaced on warranty but I bought an Odyssey PC1500RT to take its place. The warranty battery now resides in my motor home.

Sears DieHard International (Group 94R) is about $135. Think warranty is ~ 3 yrs., but not sure.

Sam's Club Energizer (same group number) has 3 yr full warranty for about $90.
