It must be a good battery then! LoL.  :)  I will make certain to post my initial impressions in comparison to my current Motorcraft BXT-65-850 along with some PICS once installed. Z

I had two Odyssey batteries self destruct from bad cells.  I won't ever touch those again.  When I mean self destruct I mean CAUGHT ON FRICKEN FIRE.  The first one shorted out internally and started melting/burning while inside my mustang.  By some miracle I was in the garage working on my lawn mower when I heard a little pop/sizzle.  I was already working on the mustang and the battery was unhooked.  I used my big ass Channel locks and put it in the middle of my driveway.  It continued to melt/pop and smoke.  Finally it finished.   This.... was a replacement that was only a month old after my first one did the same thing completely unhooked sitting on the ground next to my work bench.  I was using the smaller PC680.

I just replaced my SHO's motorcraft MAX Monday.  The one in there was from 15'.  I think a cell went dead because it was fine the night before, then no juice and I couldn't get it to charge back up.  Love that MAX warranty. :)

There is unfortunately nothing bullet proof especially when it comes down to electrical accessories. 
I recently had my new Uniden radar fail on me which luckily was covered partially under warranty.  Z
