Power Your RV and Accessories with ODYSSEY® Batteries for National Camping Month

June is National Camping Month, which has been observed since the 1970s to encourage families and friends to experience nature via extended stays in the great outdoors. For an experience with greater comfort and safety, campers are investing in Recreational Vehicles (RVs) to upgrade their living quarters during these adventures. RVs are equipped with all sorts of onboard amenities, including climate control units, entertainment systems, microwaves, refrigerators and Global Positioning System (GPS). Access to electrical outlets installed in the RV also enables you to charge your cell phone, electronic devices and camping equipment. When it comes to operating these accessories as well as starting the engine itself, the selection of a dependable battery is essential.

A battery that meets an RV’s demand for dependability, capacity and durability is available with ODYSSEY® batteries. Manufactured with Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, they provide deep cycle reserve power and energy. ODYSSEY® batteries feature flat plates made of pure lead, not lead calcium like many conventional lead acid battery designs. Pure lead plates can be made thinner, so more of them fit in the battery for greater active surface area, offering twice as much power as conventional batteries. Their compressed Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) plate separators deliver extreme vibration resistance and prevent spills.

An RV is a fun way to enjoy nature and the outdoors, whether it’s in June for National Camping Month or any other time of the year. Using a high-performance ODYSSEY® battery in your RV allows you to experience camping without worrying about starting the engine and running accessories.
