Not All Batteries Are Made Equal

Odyssey Proves It!

Odyssey Battery is intent on making the best AGM hybrid starting/cycling battery on the planet. And though it is unmatched in starting power, yet, it is capable of deep cycling extremely well also. Is this the best combo battery on the market? It just might be. Let's consider the Odyssey battery design advantages to understand if we are being told a nice story or is there true science behind the claims.

Odyssey has achieved unprecedented starting power with massive deep cycle reserve power in one battery! The conventional battery wisdom has always said starting power and cycling power are two separate things that do not simultaneously exist very well. Traditionally, they are seen as mutually exclusive. It’s the battle of the thin plate vs the thick plate right? You can only choose one or the other, go one way or the other. Deply thin plate design or thick but you can't have both. The thin plate increases start up power and the thick plate decreases starting power. Thick plates mean more capacity drawn out steadily and less instant zap of current.

And so the battery industry has built batteries with these structural principals in mind and made them for different categories and applications and such were advertised for different purposes and this is still true today. Some batteries are built with the thin plates to give you that strong burst of power to crank, hence the term "cranking" or "starting" batteries and others were made with the thick plates to supply that deep cycle reserve power and these are known as "deep cycling" batteries.

Then Odyssey Battery comes along and says we don't why to play by those rules. We want to figure out a way to build a battery that can cross over and perform in each category, and not just perform but out perform the competition. This is why Odyssey Battery is revolutionary! The Odyssey battery has deployed new designs to build one battery to do both and do them both extremely well.

How did they do that?

Odyssey will confidently explain that it begins with flat plates that consist of 99.99% pure lead - not lead alloy. Oh by the way Odyssey batteries give you 15% more plate surface area than those spiral plate designs! the flat plat design of Odyssey battery uses pure lead plates that allow for the plates to be made thinner, a characteristic of starting batteries, and therefore be able to place more of these flat plates with purer lead in the battery box. Essentially it's more battery in your battery.

How do these unique plates create more power?

More Odyssey battery plates translate to more battery plate surface area and more surface area means more space for more chemical reaction on more active material on more plates. This is where the actual current or zap of power is generated from in the battery box. Odyssey is able to generate twice as much power in an Odyssey battery compared to your everyday auto store conventional type batteries.

How much more power exactly?

Odyssey batteries are capable of providing engine cranking pulses in excess of 2250 amps for 5 seconds. That is as much as double to triple that of equally sized standard batteries, even in colder temperatures. And as far as deep discharge cycling they can produce 400 charge-discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge. That's impressive by all battery standards.

What applications are Odyssey batteries a good fit for?

This extreme combination of power and performance makes Odyssey batteries perfect for vast range of applications, including automotive/LTV, marine, RV, commercial, and power sports. Did we say they can be installed on their sides and in every conceivable direction!
