I thinking of getting an Oddyssey battery on Amazon.
Amazon Amazon

Unfortunately their dimensions make no sense. I'm wondering if anyone had one of these and if so what the ACTUAL dimensions of the battery are, NOT the box it came in.

Thanks

Edwin

I'm still looking for a Group-31 battery for my truck. Seems like companies don't want to sell them anymore. I went to a local battery shop and their Group-31 battery was only 850 CCA which made no sense to me. They must have extra thick plastic case to avoid spending money on lead. Seems like everything is going that way nowadays.

I bought a Sears Diehard AGP which was made by Odyssey, it lasted 1 month past the warranty, no pro rate at all. I read through the comments on Amazon and this 1 seems to have some longevity...Mark

EDIT:
I'm not doing so well on the cheapo 850cca group 31 I can get from Canadian Tire. Only did the 18months warranty it claimed.

I have two https://www.interstatebatteries.com/products/31-mhd. They are +100cca battery and lasting beyond 36months so far for me. Closest parts store to me sells and them, and no-questions warranty replacement.

Do you have a NAPA Part Number ?
Searching NAPA returns nothing.

Thanks

I found this one:

https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/NBE7237

Battery - Automotive Commercial 12 Volts Group 31P 950 CCA Top Post

Part #: BAT 7237 Product Line: NAPA Batteries Warranty: Download

According to my NAPA search the cost is $137.99 vs. $211.48 the cost of the “HD” one you found.
Both rated at 950 CCA.
I wonder if the plates are different, or maybe the Warranty is different ?
The one you found does say HD “Heavy Duty”.

IMO, its just US$ vs Canuck$ and the labelling for each market.

I've been running the Kirkland brand batteries through Costco for years now in all my vehicles. They pro-rate their batteries on warranty, and only once have I had to return a bad battery at the 3-4 year mark, I usually get 6-7 years out of each battery.
