ODYSSEY™ Battery

Odyssey Battery


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.

Guaranteed longer service life

With a 10-12 year design life the ODYSSEY™ battery will easily last 5-8 years in automotive applications as long as it is kept correctly charged. In a cycling application, these batteries will deliver 400 cycles when discharged to an 80% depth of discharge (DOD).

Superior cranking and fast charge capability

The cranking power of ODYSSEY batteries is double to triple that of conventional batteries, even at extreme cold temperatures. Also, if constant voltage charging is used, no limit on the charge current is necessary and these batteries can be brought to a very high state of charge in less than an hour.

Mounting flexibility

Your ODYSSEY battery can be installed in any orientation; it does not affect any of its performance characteristics. However, inverted installation is not recommended.

Superior shock and vibration resistance

ODYSSEY batteries have passed a variety of tough domestic and international shock and vibration test standards.

Longer storage life

Unlike conventional batteries that require a recharge every 6 to 12 weeks, the ODYSSEY™ battery can stored for up to 2 years at 25ºC (77ºF) from a fully charged state. These batteries can be stored for 2 years or when the open circuit voltage (OCV) drops to 12.00V, whichever comes first.

Deep discharge recovery

The ODYSSEY™ battery can easily and repeatedly recover from deep discharges. Conventional SLI batteries have extreme difficulty recovering from similar situations.

No catastrophic failure

Unlike conventional SLI batteries, your ODYSSEY battery will not fail catastrophically. If you are sure the ODYSSEY battery is fully charged and yet it cranks the engine slower, you should get the battery replaced at the first opportunity.

Industry's best warranty

Depending on your application (powersports, auto-motive, etc.) ODYSSEY batteries offer up to a 4-year full replacement warranty or within 400 cycles to 80% depth of discharge, whichever occurs first. Since the actual warranty offered can vary with your geographical location, please check with your ODYSSEY representative for the
warranty specific to your application.
