Based on reviews on here and other sites, I just bought the batteries plus X2 power 31 AGM, to run my 2 12ā€ lowrance and 12ā€ Garmin with livescope.

I believe the Odyssey and X2 are made by the same company. Iā€™m tempted to order a 125amp hour lithium, but then I have to redo my battery charging setup.

Y'all are missing out greatly with this battery...granted the X2 / NorthStar is the best around, but this battery is something to look into:

Beast of a battery and powers my rig for many hours running pumps, electronics, and starting the big motor.

That's definitely the best trolling motor battery for the price. We've ran them for years and is always a top choice when guys ask about trolling motor batteries. But for cranking/dual purpose needs, its not enough for us and most newer rigs with multiple big screens, pumps, poles etc. Last thing you want is to be stranded cause of a weak cranking battery at the end of the day. The Duracell barely meets minimum cca for most 250 outboards. Add in all the electronics and accessories, you're susceptible to issues at the end of a full day

I use an Optima Blue Top group 31 AGM on my 250 SHO and it has performed very well.
