No Matter the Season, ODYSSEY® Batteries Can Help You Travel with Ease

by | Jan 26, 2024 | RVEXPERT, Sponsored

Built to withstand temperature extremes while delivering twice the overall power and three times the life of conventional flooded lead acid batteries, ODYSSEY® batteries are designed to perform under the rigors of RV use!

Whether you use your RV full-time, start camping outdoors as the weather warms or — as is the case right now — like to boondock in a remote location during winter months to enjoy scenery few others will ever glimpse, one thing all of these recreational vehicles share is a need for dependable 12-volt power.

Virtually maintenance-free ODYSSEY® batteries from EnerSys® can get you from “Point A” to “Point B” — and back again.

Manufactured with proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) ODYSSEY® batteries deliver long-lasting, dependable performance — with twice the overall power and three times the life of conventional flooded lead acid batteries. As a result of it’s patented TPPL technology, the pure lead plates engineered inside the battery can be made thinner than those used in traditional models, so more fit inside the ODYSSEY® battery case. This provides more surface area for massive power in any given group size — and ample cranking power even at a low Depth of Discharge (DOD).

ODYSSEY® batteries are also extremely temperature-tolerant, with an operating range from -40°F (-40°C) to 140°F (60°C). The battery also offers greater cycle life for frequent deep discharges that can occur when powering on-board accessories such as kitchen appliances, an entertainment center or even GPS.

Even though RVs are designed to endure most weather conditions, they still require attention, especially if they sit dormant throughout the winter. ODYSSEY® batteries, however, are designed to be stored up to two years at 77°F (25°C) from a fully charged state. Their densely packed flat plates minimize unused space, unlike popular spiral-wound batteries with a six-pack design, to provide 15% more plate surface area for more overall power.

ODYSSEY® batteries also include a massive deep-cycle reserve capacity — as well as enormous cranking power that is enough to provide engine-cranking pulses in excess of 2250 amps for five seconds. Plus, the battery’s vibration-resistant and non-spillable AGM design means it can handle the harsh conditions road or gravel conditions may present.

Other features and benefits of EnerSys® ODYSSEY® batteries include:

  • Amazing deep-cycling capability — up to 400 cycles at 80% DOD.
  • Classified as a non-spillable battery, so it can be mounted or stored in any position except inverted.
  • Backed by an industry-leading warranty.
  • Faster recharging with the highest recharge efficiency of any sealed lead acid battery on the Market — capable of 100% recharge in 4-6 hours.

If you’re searching for an RV battery to power you through the camping season and beyond, look no further than the ODYSSEY® battery lineup from EnerSys®.
