It's New! The Odyssey Drycell Battery is here!
No Maintenance required  - Ever!

The ODYSSEY® battery combines 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 1700A for 5 seconds as well as 400 charge/discharge cycles to 100% 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
Superior cranking and fast recharge capability - The cranking power of ODYSSEY® batteries is double to triple that of equally sized conventional batteries, even when the temperature is as low as -40°C. Also, with simple constant voltage charging, there is no limitation on the inrush current, so the user is assured of fast recovery. This characteristic is explored in greater detail later in the section titled Rapid charging of ODYSSEY® batteries.
Guaranteed longer service life - The ODYSSEY® battery, with an eight year design life and a three-to-eight year service life, saves you time and money because you do not have to replace your battery as often. It is also the ONLY battery that is capable of delivering a large number of deep
cycles — up to 400 when fully discharged or up to 500 when discharged
to 80%. Plus, the battery is specially designed for high vibration applications.
Longer storage life - Unlike conventional batteries
that need to be recharged every six to twelve weeks,
the ODYSSEY® battery will maintain up to 50% state of charge after 2˝ years if stored at room  temperature (25°C).

At temperatures lower than 25°C, storage times will be even longer.
Warranty: 24 mo. free replacement with proof of purchase. Battery will be replaced if defect in material or workmanship (not merely discharged).
Over discharge/deep discharge recovery - The ease with which the
ODYSSEY® battery recovers from this type of application abuse
is unheard of and the section titled Storage and recharge criteria for
ODYSSEY® batteries discusses test data on this very important topic

concerning SLI batteries.
Ready out of the box - ODYSSEY® batteries are shipped fully charged. Simply install the battery in your vehicle and you are ready to go! With this battery, there is no need to boost charge, add water or clean terminals before installing.
Sealed Rechargeable DrycellTM - Deep Cycle Batteries
Worry-free shipping - The sealed Drycell™ design of the ODYSSEY® battery eliminates the need for vent tubes; further, no
routine maintenance is required and there is no more fear of acid burns or damage to expensive chrome or paint. Owing to the
starved-electrolyte design, the US Department of Transportation (
US DOT) has classified the ODYSSEY® battery as a dry battery, so it may be shipped worry-free by UPS/Federal Express or by air.
Mounting flexibility - The ODYSSEY® battery may be installed in any orientation except inverted without sacrificing any performance attributes.
Superior vibration resistance - ODYSSEY® batteries have endured very rigorous tests that demonstrate their overall
ruggedness and exceptional tolerance of mechanical abuse. Details of these tests may be found in the section titled Shock,
impact and vibration testing.

                           F A Q 's
How should I charge the Odyssey Battery?
Because of it's advanced design, the Odyssey will keep it's charge much longer than a regular battery, even when not in use. After being stored for 6+months, without being used, if the battery voltage measures 12.5V or less you can use a standard 12 volt charger to boost the charge before putting it back into service3, but never leave on a charge longer than 12 hours.

What about winter storage?
Odyssey's maintenance-free terminals make it the first true "Install and Forget" battery.  Although there's no need to follow any special procedure, to get the best results and longest life, charge it prior to storage and store at room temp or below (the lower the better).  Don't worry about freezing like you might have with regular batteries: this one is designed to withstand temps. as low as -40 degrees!

What is the CCA rating?
The cold cranking ampere (CCA) rating refers to the number of amperes a battery can support for 30 seconds at a
temperature of 0°F until the battery voltage drops to 1.20 volts per cell, or 7.20 volts for a 12V battery. Thus, a 12V
battery that carries a rating of 600 CCA tells us that the battery will provide 600 amperes for 30 seconds at 0°F before
the voltage falls to 7.20V

Are these a gel cell?   What’s the difference?
No, the ODYSSEY is NOT a gel cell.  It is an absorbed electrolyte type battery, meaning that there is no free acid inside the battery;

all of the acid is kept absorbed in the glass mat separators. These separators serve to keep the positive and negative plates apart.

The key difference between the gel cell and the absorbed glass mat (AGM) cell lies in the fact that in the AGM cell all of
the electrolyte is in the separator, whereas in the gel cell the acid is within the cells in a gel form. In fact, if the
ODYSSEY battery were to split open, there would be no acid spillage

I do not understand the Ah rating. Please explain.
The ampere-hour (Ah) rating defines the capacity of a battery. A typical battery that is rated as a 100Ah battery at
the 10 hour rate of discharge is capable of delivering 10A for 10 hours before the terminal voltage drops to a standard
value such as 1.67 volts per cell, or 10.02 volts for a 12V battery. Similarly, a 50Ah battery would supply a 5A load for
10 hours. The BP1000 battery is rated at 42Ah, so it can furnish 4.2A for 10 hours.

Is ODYSSEY® a completely dry battery?
Because the ODYSSEY® has no free acid inside the battery, it is covered under the US Department of
Transportation (
US DOT) unregulated "wet nonspillable wet electric storage batteries" classification and International Air
Transport Association (IATA) "unrestricted" air shipments categories. These batteries may be shipped completely
worry-free. Supporting documentation is readily available.

Are these Ni-Cd batteries? Why doesn’t somebody make these in Ni-Cd? Wouldn’t they charge faster with Ni-Cd?
No, the ODYSSEY is NOT a Ni-Cd battery; it is an absorbed (starved) electrolyte sealed lead battery. In general, nickel cadmium

batteries are much more expensive to manufacture and recycle, so they are far less cost effective than a lead acid product.

A nickel cadmium battery would charge faster than a conventional lead acid battery; however, the ODYSSEY is NOT a
conventional battery and its charge characteristics are somewhat similar to nickel cadmium batteries. In fact, with a
powerful enough charger, it is possible to bring ODYSSEY batteries to better than 95% state of charge in under 20
minutes! That is very comparable to the fast charge capabilities of a nickel cadmium product
.
