I thought I read in an post late last year/early this year that it was discontinued. Someone correct me if Im wrong. If you do a search on cranking batteries in this forum, I think you will find a bunch of recent info as the topic was discussed at length not long ago.

I was big fan of the Sears Platinum 31 series. Had one finally go bad after 5 years. Replaced with the new Interstate AGM 31 series. Very similar battery $299 with three year replacement warranty. Very impressed so far
Yep ! Just came from Sears , it is discontinued . I ended up going to batteries plus and getting there x2 power ( I believe that is Odyssey ) . Very expensive I hope I get what I paid for so to speak .
The Sears PM 31 has been discontinued. However, you can still buy the same battery. Odyssey manufactured it for Sears, so the identical battery is the Odyssey 31M-PC2150.Madgaffer, I believe that the X2 31 series battery from Batteries Plus that you bought is a rebadged Northstar. It has a greater reserve than the Odyssey. Excellent battery and good warranty. If I ever go AGM, I would be putting that X2/Northstar in my boat.Last edited by catdude28 on March 4th, 2016, 4:11 am, edited 1 time in total.
Yep Northstar ! I got it mixed up . I just wanted a good battery from a place I could pick it up and possibly be close by when / if I need to warranty . Pm1 was great . The battery I had in the boat this time didnt make it two years .

I put another 31 series truck battery in the rig I have now, but this time it is a rebadged Deka. I am still fine with flooded truck batteries as well, and if I can get 2-3 years out of a wet battery at less than half the cost of an AGM, then I figure that I have done well.
Northstar is a VERY GOOD AGM battery with a bit stiff sticker price! Deka comes highly recommended by those who are familiar with East Penn company. Trojan has a solid success as an AGM and Full River is also a good battery. Pick your preference!
