National Camping Month: Travel with Ease in Your Recreational Vehicle with ODYSSEY® Batteries

As the weather warms and you can start to savor more hours of daylight, there’s nothing like the feeling of getting outdoors in the fresh air with nature. One popular activity during this time of year, that often draws together friends and family, is camping.

While traditional outdoor enthusiasts may prefer to use a tent and cot set out in the wilderness, another way of camping that’s rapidly growing in population is using a Recreational Vehicle (RV). This June, celebrate National Camping Month and travel with ease in your RV by choosing an ODYSSEY® battery from EnerSys®.

Whether camping close to home or boondocking in a remote location, virtually maintenance-free Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) ODYSSEY® batteries deliver long-lasting performance, with twice the overall power and three times the life of conventional flooded lead acid batteries, to get you from “Point A” to “Point B” and back again. They are manufactured with proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, allowing the pure lead plates to be made thinner so more fit inside the battery case. This provides more surface area for massive power in a given group size and ample cranking 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.

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.
  • Back 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.
  • Unique design helps protect against premature battery failure due to high impact shock and mechanical vibration.

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®.
