Has anyone used an Interstate AGM starting battery? What are your thoughts on this battery?

Have had it for about 4 months. Works fine but they are pricey......

I run 2-12" on console and a 9" on the bow. Running them (even setting the graphs on standby) in conjunction with both wells all day were tough on my old battery, this one has been good to go.

STAY AWAY!!! STAY FAR AWAY!

Interstate batteries have let me down several times...I now don't even purchase. I only purchased due to being available when others were not.

1) They are underrated and overpriced when compared to other AGM batteries
2) They may state they have a decent reserve, but they don't hold up to the use
3) When they die, their warranty department, at least the one's I have dealt with, want to battle you on everything
4) I may have gotten 1.5 seasons out of them and that's being generous.

I would look at the Duracell AGM offerings at Sam's or Batteries+, best bang for the buck. If you want to go all out...then Odyssey, NorthStar / Batteries+ X2 power AGM are the beasts of the bunch.

I've been running mine for a year now with 3 Graphs and Livewells running without any issues at all.

X2 are Northstar batteries and are made in Springfield, MO. I have 3 in my boat and 2 in my truck. All are 7+ years old now and work great. They are the best of the best. I too have heard negative things about Interstate recently, although I have no recent firsthand experience (havn't needed to buy a battery for boat or truck in 7 years!).

The best dual purpose AGM's are Odyssey, X2, Northstar in my opinion. Pricey but worth it. Exide makes a decent big agm with nearly 1100 CCA. I believe exide is made by interstate?

I saw the interstate AGM 31 at academy. Looks identical to the exide which I don't see anymore. Same price too. 1160 MCA
