2017 Metris Worker with starter battery only, no backup battery, etc.

1) Does anyone know specs (CCA, reserve, PHCA, dimensions, etc.) of OEM battery, for comparison purposes?

2) What did you buy as a replacement? Any specific heavy-duty battery recommendations?

This van sees 8-12 hours of idling daily, multiple daily stops/starts, 7 days/week operation, plus operates in outdoor temps ranging from 10F - 115F.

Considering the Odyssey 48-720 among others.

Thanks for yr advice.

So you're having to replace at 2 years? What kind of load are you putting on the electrical system? 8-12 hours idling daily is a lot of 'abuse'.

I second using an OEM Varta battery....they're some of the longest lasting batteries I've ever seen. The original in my 2001 E320 wagon lasted 18 years!!!
