ODYSSEY® Sealed Drycell/Deep Cycle Batteries
The ODYSSEY® Battery combines in one box the characteristics of two separate batteries. It can deep cycle as well as provide enormous cranking power - it is almost as if a champion long distance runner and a world class sprinter are one and the same person.
These batteries are capable of providing engine cranking pulses in excess of 1700A for 5 seconds as well as 400 charge/discharge cycles to 100% depth of discharge (DOD). A typical starting. lighting and ignition (SLI) battery can do one or the other, but not both. It is either a sprinter or a long distance runner; ODYSSEY® batteries will do both - provide short duration high amperage pulse or low rate long duration drains.
Why Use ODYSSEY® Batteries
Guaranteed Longer Service Life: With a ten year design life and a three-to-eight year service life, ODYSSEY® saves you time and money because you do not have to replace the battery as often. ODYSSEY® is warranted against factory defects for two full years in Powersports or three full years in automotive, commercial and heavy-duty marine.
Superior Cranking and Fast Charge Capability: The 5 second cranking power of ODYSSEY® batteries is double to triple that of equally sized conventional batteries, even when the temperature is as low as - 40°C. Also, with simple constant voltage charging (alternator or independent charger), there is no limitation on the inrush current, so the user is assured of fast charge recovery.
Mounting Flexibility: The ODYSSEY® battery may be installed on its sides at any angle without sacrificing any performance attributes. There is no fear of any acid spillage as ODYSSEY® recycles the internal gas during operation or charging.
Superior Vibration Resistance: ODYSSEY® batteries are of military grade and have endured rigorous tests that demonstrate their overall ruggedness and exceptional tolerance of mechanical abuse.
Ready Out of the Box: ODYSSEY® batteries are shipped fully charged. If ODYSSEY'S voltage is 12.65V or greater simply install the battery in your vehicle and you are ready to go! If below 12.65V, boost charge following the instructions in the ODYSSEY® Owner's Manual.
Worry-Free Shipping: The sealed design of the ODYSSEY® battery eliminates the need for a acid vent tube; eliminating the fear of acid burns or damage to expensive chrome or paint. Owing to the Drycell design, the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) has classified the ODYSSEY® battery as a dry battery, so it may be shipped worry-free by UPS/Federal Express or by air.
Longer Storage Life: Unlike conventional batteries that need to be recharged every six to twelve weeks the ODYSSEY® battery, when fully charged, can be stored for up to 2 years at 25°C (77°F). Simply recharge and ODYSSEY® is returned to full power. At lower temperatures, storage times will be even longer.
Deep Discharge Recovery: Should ODYSSEY® become deeply discharged, simply recharge following instructions in the ODYSSEY® Owners Manual.
