Watts is horse power (746 watts equals 1 horsepower.) Watts equal volts times amps. The same voltage with more amps will apply more watts. You could also go with more voltage at the same amps to increase horsepower.

I gave up the high tec idea Going either Deka etx20l or odyssey pc680 I can't decide I have talked to both sides but ones numbers aren't the same as the other Deka is 310 cca and 17.5 ah odyssey is 220 cca and 16 ah but they say they can do 680 amps for 5 seconds Deka has no numbers like that Deka said to charge slow Odyssey said to charge fast Who would think lead batterys could be so have to understand?

it was a golf cart pro mod style.... 6:1 gears golf cart rear end i think 19" tall tires under 500 pounds...with out driver it might have been a parrellell pack of 680 so that makes it 1360 amps....

i can understand your fustration with batts and the sales men... you need to under stand they are just sales men and they all say there stuff is better than the other... i always say proove it let me have a set for a test and if they run the # then yes your are right they are better but im not spending \$2000.00 to find out your wrong.....

for a agm batt the Odd.. have been prooven the best for the weight ....

the pc680 is the best batt they have for power weight and costs....
2 of them weight the same as a 925 but now you have 1360 amps

the cost for 2 is the same a one 925...

my cart on 144 volts pc 925's bypass with 6:1 gears 18" tall tire and spinning the slicks on the lunch 9.34 @ 69.5 mph

cart weighs on 72 volts 625 + 150 (to toal 144 volts) + me 230 pounds =

1005 pounds.... we know on 72volt my cart with a 100 pound lighter driver it went .30 faster and 1 mph faster...

im not affraidright or wrong good or bad what i have done....

the only way to learn is try it
