ODYSSEY STARTING BATTERIES The ODYSSEY®
battery ingeniously uses absorbed glass mat (AGM) technology to offer, 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 2250A for 5 seconds as well as 400 charge/discharge cycles to 80% 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.
INSTALLATION AND WARRANTY
The ODYSSEY battery may be installed in any orientation (except inverted) without sacrificing any performance attributes. There is no fear of any acid spillage as ODYSSEY batteries recycle the internal gas during operation or charging. The valve regulated design of the ODYSSEY battery eliminates the need for an acid vent tube; eliminating the fear of acid burns or damage to expensive chrome or paint.
With an eight to twelve year design life (float) and a three to ten year service life, ODYSSEY batteries save you time and money because you do not have to replace the battery as often.
