Some batteries provide enormous cranking power. Others, deep cycle reserve power. The revolutionary ODYSSEY battery is designed to do both.
How is this possible? The answer begins with flat plates made of 99.99% pure virgin lead - not lead alloy. Pure lead plates can be made thinner, so we can fit more of them in the battery. More ODYSSEY battery plates mean more plate surface area. And that means more power, twice as much as conventional batteries.
In fact, ODYSSEY batteries are capable of providing engine cranking pulses in excess of 2250 amps for 5 seconds, double to triple that of equally sized conventional batteries, even at very low temperatures. And they can handle 400 charge-discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge.
This extreme combination of power and performance makes ODYSSEY batteries perfect for a range of applications, including automotive/LTV, marine, commercial, and powersports.
Designed and built to last up to 3 times as long.
Thanks to rugged construction and AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) design, ODYSSEY batteries have an 8-12 year design life and a 3-10 year service life. Welded intercell connections enable it to withstand extreme vibration, and AGM design holds acid in place to prevent spills, even when installed on its side. And unlike conventional batteries, ODYSSEY batteries can be stored for up to 2 years and still be returned to full power.*
ODYSSEY Battery Comparison
8-12 years (Float) @ 25 C (77 F)
3 to 10 years
1 to 5 years
Drycell (starved electrolyte) no external leakage or corrosion
Most are acid flooded (causing acid burns and spills); some wet sealed or 'gelled'
2 years before needing charge @ 25C (77F)
6-12 weeks before needing charge
Air transportable; US Department of Transportation classified non-spillable (less expensive)
Ground transport; classified as hazardous material (more expensive)
END OF LIFE
Battery slowly loses power at end of life; no catastrophic failure
Immediate and catastrophic loss of power (can leave you stranded)
