odyessey batteries! metal jacket + mounting bracket 150.00 shipped.

odyessey batteries! For all your charging needs!


Why list a battery on nce, well this is not a normal battery. We have 10 of these units on thier way for 160 Cash OTD in Ca! In need of a new battery, don't waste your time with these oem or other name brand batteries! This is the real deal battery that we use on our race car evo!

HD* '80-'96 full dresser, under seat mount, w/metal jacket


Guaranteed longer service life
With a 10-12 year design life the ODYSSEY***8482; battery will easily last 5-8 years in automotive applications as long as it is kept correctly charged. In a cycling application these batteries will deliver 400 cycles when discharged to an 80% depth of discharge (DOD).

Superior cranking and fast charge capability
The cranking power of ODYSSEY batteries is double to triple that of conventional batteries, even at extreme cold temperatures. Also, if constant voltage charging is used, no limit on the charge current is necessary and these batteries can be brought to a very high state of charge in less than an hour.

Mounting flexibility
Your ODYSSEY battery can be installed in any orientation; it does not affect any of its performance characteristics. However, inverted installation is not recommended.

Superior vibration resistance ODYSSEY batteries are of military grade and have endured rigorous tests that demonstrate their overall ruggedness and exceptional tolerance of mechanical abuse.

Ready out of the box
All ODYSSEY batteries are shipped fully charged. Simply install it in your vehicle if the battery voltage reads 12.65V or higher and you are ready to go. A voltage reading less than 12.65V will need a boost charge prior to installation. For optimum reliability a boost charge before installation is recommended, regardless of the battery's open circuit terminal voltage.

Worry-free shipping
The absorbed glass mat (AGM) valve regulated design of the ODYSSEY battery means there is no acid to spill out and cause acid burns or damage to expensive paint and chrome. Because of the starved electrolyte design the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) has classified the ODYSSEY battery as a dry battery. Shipping an ODYSSEY battery by express ground or air is possible.

Superior shock and vibration resistance
ODYSSEY batteries have passed a variety of tough domestic and international shock and vibration test standards.
Longer storage life
Unlike conventional batteries that require a recharge every 6 to 12 weeks, the ODYSSEY***8482; battery can stored for up to 2 years at 25ºC (77ºF) from a fully charged state. These batteries can be stored for 2 years or when the open circuit voltage (OCV) drops to 12.00V, whichever comes first.
Deep discharge recovery
The ODYSSEY***8482; battery can easily and repeatedly recover from deep discharges. Conventional SLI batteries have extreme difficulty recovering from similar situations.
No catastrophic failure
Unlike conventional SLI batteries your ODYSSEY battery will not fail catastrophically. If you are sure the ODYSSEY battery is fully charged and yet it cranks the engine slower, you should get the battery replaced at the first opportunity.
Industry's best warranty
Depending on your application (powersports, auto-motive, etc.) ODYSSEY batteries offer up to a 4-year full replacement warranty or within 400 cycles to 80% depth of discharge, whichever occurs first. Since the actual warranty offered can vary with your geographical location, please check with your ODYSSEY representative for the warranty specific to your application.

I've been using a 925 for over a year now. It's a great compromise between weight a battery life. It's only 25lbs and I've left my car with the headlights on for about 4 hours and it still started without hesitation. These are definitely a great way to drop some weight!

Do these Odyessey batteries have the vent tube connection on the positive terminal side? The website doesn't mention it.
