I replaced my Pep Boys car battery with a 15 lb. Odyssey sealed battery in the trunk of my S4. It's spec'd for Harley and gives lot of cranking power. I secured it in a marine battery case from West Marine.

Hi - Is this ebay listing like the battery you have?

<a href='http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=4500077857&category=35594' target='_blank'>battery</a> No, that is not my own listing

also I looked at West Marine's site -- is this what you bought?

<a href='http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10001&langId=-1&catalogId=10001&productId=142805&catalogId=10001&classNum=208&subdeptNum=207&storeNum=9' target='_blank'>West Marine</a>

In anticipation of your gratious reply, I remain: your indentured servant.

Gary;

The battery is the same brand as mine. Look at the smaller battery boxes from W. Marine. I wanted to fully enclose the battery posts. I mounted it in the orignal battery area.
