battery help (atv)

My dad has a 2008 or 2009 arctic cat 700 H1 4x4 se atv.
his battery is dying, slow to crank had to be jumped in cold weather.
ive been looking at replacement batteries.
In 2012 i bought the current battery for him a ytx20h-bs yuasa agm battery.
when he put the acid in he let it sit for an hour and charged it, the paper work recommend longer sit times. i think it was never right from day one.

so now I am looking at a replacement for him. I've been comparing prices.
the yuasa battery is about 89 bucks
but i found a chrome battery brand for 48 bucks

has anyone ever heard of chrome battery? good bad?
or should i just stick to the yuasa.

The pc680 would work but the poles are reversed and the cca are low.
Pc680 = 170
The ytx20= 320

I have one (680) in my 1150 GS.... starts it fine. also, I have one in my airplane... same battery, 320 Cubic Inch 4 cylinder.... starts it fine too. the airplane one is going on 6 years. I wouldn't worry about the cca on paper.... these batteries work. I've had a couple others in airplanes and my hovercraft that got out to 6-8 years & got changed because we were nervous about the age since these machines go places you can't walk out of. one was 6 years old & I put in my brothers R80 & he ran it 2 more years & was working when sold

If you go standard lead acid again....

Fill and let sit over night or up to 24 hours.
Check levels and top if needed. Then charge at 1 amp until charged.

One hour will not saturate the plates. And then premature death often happens to the Batt.
