Jeep® 4×4 Day is an annual observance that takes place every April 4th to encourage people to celebrate nature and discover the open air on the trails or beaches to hunt, fish, kayak and/or sail. While all these activities can be a blast, it would be unfortunate to end up stranded with an inoperable battery after a long day of fun. ODYSSEY® batteries from EnerSys® are a great option to keep your adventures from being cut short.
With warmer weather around the corner for many people, outdoor activities will keep you moving. ODYSSEY® batteries can help power your vehicle so you’re ready to go wherever your adventure takes you in that moment.
ODYSSEY® batteries are a great option to keep you moving this Jeep® 4×4 Day, with the ruggedness to combat the rough terrain of dirt, sand or mud. The non-spillable, Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction enables ODYSSEY® batteries to travel through intense environments, while its military-inspired design can help cushion harsh blows due to its extreme vibration resistance. AGM construction also assists in containing the acid inside the battery, which gives the battery the flexibility to be installed in any position except inverted.
ODYSSEY® batteries are manufactured with proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, with flat plates made of pure lead, not lead alloy, like many conventional, flooded lead-acid models. Pure lead plates can be made thinner, so more can fit in the battery. Unlike standard spiral-wound batteries with a six-pack design, ODYSSEY® powersports batteries are densely packed with flat plates to minimize the empty space to provide 15 percent more plate surface area. More plate surface area enables more electrochemical reactions with the electrolyte for twice as much power as alternative lead acid types.
ODYSSEY® batteries provide ample cranking, even at low Depth of Discharge (DOD), and tolerate extreme temperatures with an operating range from -40°F (-40°C) to 140°F (60°C). They also offer greater cycle life for frequent deep discharges that can occur when powering on-board accessories. That is performance you can depend on time and time again.
