ODYSSEY® Batteries are the Ideal Match to Your Trolling Motor

For avid fishing enthusiasts, equipping the boat with a trolling motor is key to hooking the “catch of the day.” The performance of the trolling motor, however, which is designed for both boat propulsion and slow cruising, is heavily dependent upon your power source. With twice the power and triple the life of conventional lead acid marine battery designs, ODYSSEY® Marine Dual Purpose batteries are engineered with maximum cranking amps to start the engine and premium deep cycling capacity for trolling, even as you run onboard accessories and equipment.

Manufactured with proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) ODYSSEY® Marine Dual Purpose batteries are also virtually maintenance-free. With no watering or changing required, anglers can devote more time to enjoying their open-water experience and less on the upkeep of their battery. The battery’s pure lead plate design also makes it less likely to sulfate and corrode, which can lead to premature battery failure. The plates are thinner than conventional flooded batteries, so more of them can fit inside the battery case. More plates provide greater active surface area, which offers greater power capability for a given volume.

ODYSSEY® Marine Dual Purpose batteries with TPPL technology meet the boating angler’s needs for a reliable battery that can start the engine and power trolling and house loads. The TPPL technology also simplifies storage and recommissioning between seasons. You will find that with the proper care and use, ODYSSEY® Marine Dual Purpose batteries may have the ability to deliver consistent performance through years of fishing excursions.
