Does sears have the appropiate charger? What would work well with this battery?

**Yeah, sears has a Platinum Charger for $99 but save your money and get this one: VEC1087C car battery charger**
If the Sears battery is the same as the Odesey it must be AGM? How did you figure that out, the Sears website give very little info that I could find?

**I am active on some battery discussion groups where it was noted that they were the same but that Sears contract with Odyssey would soon run out unless renewed at a higher price since lead went up from their contracted price and thus the "deal" doesn't have long to live! Yes...both SearsPlatinum and Odyssey are AGM but a very UNIQUE AGM...**

I only need one maybe two hauls between charges.

I thought AGM's could handle faster discharge rates or is that only faster charge rate?

**AGM's CAN handle FASTER discharge rates...typically around 40-50% of rated capacity...Odysseys can handle OVER 100% of rated capacity...thus you can get away with ONE odyssey battery since I figured you'd hate me if you had to haul TWO AGMS or a couple of 4D wet cells! **

From Sears site:

*The PM-1 Platinum Marine Battery from DieHard features 205 minutes of reserve capacity and 1150 cold cranking amps. Provides power for RVs, trolling motors, marine accessories and starting needs. The combination stud/post terminal design allows for multiple connections. Its corrosion-resistant high quality tin-coated brass terminals provide reliable starting power in all weather conditions. Its rugged, military-grade construction features robust casing for increased compression and offers superior vibration resistance.*
Does this mean 205 minutes to dead at 25 amps.

**YES**
100 minutes to half charge at 25 amps

40 minutes at 62 amps

40 / 7 minutes per haul is about 6 hauls

**NO... Wrong rating. You first figure the current...in amps which is 62. Then you figure the time which is 7/60ths...or 7 minutes draw. That gives you amp HOURS used 7.23 to be exact. So...with a 115ah capacity at the 20 hour rate the Odyssey can be discharged to an 80% depth or 92ah's before requiring a recharge. (Other wet or AGM's should be 50-60% depth). 92 amp hours divided by 7.23 ah's per haul gives you about 12 hauls. **

Conservatively 10.
