Odyssey® Battery: Extreme Battery
Odyssey Batteries offer phenomenal starting power and massive deep cycle reserve power in one battery. How is this possible? The answer is in Odyssey’s revolutionary design. Starting with flat plates made of 99.99% pure virgin lead, not a lead alloy. Unlike the competitors’ batteries, pure lead plates can be made thinner, so more can fit in the battery. More plates mean more surface area, which equals more power; twice as much as conventional batteries.
In tests, Odyssey batteries have shown they are capable of providing engine cranking pulses in excess of 2250 amps for 5 seconds. This is 2x to 3x that of equally sized conventional car batteries. Odyssey Batteries are truly an extreme battery, as they can handle 400 charge-discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge.
Versatile, an extreme combination of power and performance, Odyssey batteries is perfect for automotive, marine, commercial, powersports, and wide range of other applications.
Built To Last 3x Longer
With a rugged construction and AGM design, Odyssey batteries have an 8-12 year design life and a 3-10 year service life. Its welded intercell connections enable it to withstand extreme vibration, and AGM design prevents spills when battery is positioned on its side. In normal storage conditions, Odyssey batteries can be stored up to 2 years and still be returned to full power, unlike conventional batteries.
|A: Tin Alloy Coated Brass Terminals||B: Pure Lead Plates||C: Robust Intercell Connections||D: Available Metal Case|
|Brass terminals coated with a high-quality tin alloy ensure secure, corrosion-free cable connections.||Constructed from 99.99% pure virgin lead. Thin plates, so more of them can fit into a battery. More lead plates equals more power.||Built to stringent specifications, cell connectors are casted to the plates, and bonded to resist vibration and eliminate internal sparking.||Available with metal casing for high heat applications|
Odyssey Battery Comparison
|Odyssey Batteries||Conventional Batteries|
|DESIGN LIFE||8-12 years (Float) @ 25°C (77°F)||5 years|
|SERVICE LIFE||3 to 10 years||1 to 5 years|
|ELECTROLYTE||Drycell ("starved electrolyte") no external leakage or corrosion||Most are acid flooded (causing acid burns and spills); Some wet sealed or "gelled"|
|STORAGE LIFE||2 years before needing charge @ 25°C (77°F)||6-12 weeks before needing charge|
|SHIPPING||Air transportable; US department of Transporation classified non-spillable (less expensive)||Classified as hazardous material (expensive shipment)|
|END OF LIFE||Battery slowly loses power at end of life; no catastrophic failure||Immeditate and catastrophic loss of power (can leave you stranded)|
