ODYSSEY® batteries are designed with Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) separators that hold the electrolyte in place to prevent spills. The plates are constructed with 99 percent pure lead – not lead alloy – and can be made much thinner than conventional flooded lead acid batteries. This enables more plates to fit in the same space, allowing more surface area for a reaction to occur with the electrolyte, ultimately increasing the battery’s power capabilities. With superior power and endurance through unique Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, ODYSSEY® batteries can be used in a wide array of vehicles, including high performance, modified, heavy duty and commercial, municipal, passenger cars, Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs), light trucks, recreational boats and powersports vehicles, including All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) and motorcycles.

ODYSSEY® batteries feature a three- to 10-year service life and a two-year storage life at 77°F (25°C). They are vibration and shock resistant, classified as “non-spillable” by the U.S. Department of Transportation and include a limited three-year full replacement warranty.
