OWNER’S MANUAL THE BATTERY THAT GOES TO EXTREMES INTRODUCTION The ODYSSEY™ battery ingeniously uses absorbed glass mat (AGM) technology to offer, in one box, the characteristics of two separate batteries. It can deep cycle as well as provide enormous cranking power it is almost as if a champion long distance runner and a world class sprinter are one and the same person. These batteries are capable of providing engine cranking pulses in excess of 2250A for 5 seconds as well as 400 charge/discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge (DOD). A typical starting, lighting and ignition (SLI) battery can do one or the other, but not both. It is either a sprinter or a long distance runner; ODYSSEY batteries will do both — provide short duration high amperage pulse or low rate long duration drains. WHY USE ODYSSEY™ BATTERIES? Guaranteed longer service life With an eight to twelve year design life (float) and a three to ten year service life, ODYSSEY batteries save you time and money because you do not have to replace the battery as often. ODYSSEY batteries are warranted against factory defects for two (2) years for powersports applications; three (3) years in automotive, marine, commercial and industrial applications and; four (4) years in the case of the 75/86-PC1230, 25-PC1400, 35-PC1400, 34-PC1500, 34/78-PC1500, 65-PC1750, 31-PC2150 and PC2250 batteries, except Trolling Thunder™/Marine Dual Purpose labeled batteries, for which the applicable Warranty Period is three (3) years. Since actual warranty can vary with your geographical location, please check with your ODYSSEY battery representative for the warranty specific to your application. Superior cranking and fast charge capability The 5 second cranking power of ODYSSEY batteries is double to triple that of equally sized conventional batteries, even when the temperature is as low as - 40°C (-40°F), -30°C (-22°F) for PC2250. Also, with simple constant voltage charging (alternator or independent charger), there is no limitation on the inrush current, so the user is assured of fast charge recovery. Mounting flexibility The ODYSSEY battery may be installed in any orientation (except inverted) without sacrificing any performance attributes. There is no fear of any acid spillage as ODYSSEY batteries recycle the internal gas during operation or charging. The valve regulated design of the ODYSSEY battery eliminates the need for an acid vent tube; eliminating the fear of acid burns or damage to expensive chrome or paint. Superior vibration resistance ODYSSEY batteries are of military grade technology and have endured rigorous tests that demonstrate their overall ruggedness and exceptional tolerance of mechanical abuse. Ready out of the box ODYSSEY batteries are shipped fully charged. If the ODYSSEY battery's voltage is 12.65V or greater, simply install the battery in your vehicle and you are ready to go! If below 12.65V, boost charge following the instructions in the ODYSSEY battery Owner’s Manual and/or Technical Manual. Putting a boost on the battery will not damage it, even if its voltage reads higher than 12.65V. Worry-free shipping Owing to the drycell design, the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) has classified the ODYSSEY battery as a nonspillable, so it may be shipped worry-free by express service or by air. Longer storage life Unlike conventional batteries that require a recharge every six to twelve weeks, the ODYSSEY battery can be stored for up to two years at 25ºC (77ºF) from a fully charged state. These batteries can be stored for two years or when the open circuit voltage (OCV) drops to 12.00V, whichever comes first. Deep discharge recovery Should the ODYSSEY battery become deeply discharged, simply recharge following instructions in this manual. 2 www.odysseybattery.com Publication No. 2602-0232, Rev. 6 - February 2008 INSTALLATION Your ODYSSEY™ battery is normally ready to install right out of the box! Measure the battery voltage; if it is 12.65 volts or greater, install; if less, then refer to the charging section.

The ODYSSEY battery is and operates as a sealed battery, recycling all gases internally. There is no corrosion of the positive terminal or corrosion to the surrounding area. ODYSSEY batteries are shipped fully charged from the factory, but prior to installation, check the battery’s voltage to see if it is 12.65 volts or greater. If not, recharge it using the procedure below. NOTE: Do not charge in an air tight compartment Never attempt to remove the top decal cover, as it will cause the battery to fail. CHARGING The state of charge in an ODYSSEY battery can be determined from the following chart: Voltmeter Reading State of Charge 12.84 Volts or higher 100% 12.50 Volts 75% 12.18 Volts 50% 11.88 Volts 25% To get long life from the ODYSSEY battery, it is important that the battery is kept near full charge, approximately 12.8 volts. If there are electrical loads during storage, then the negative battery cable should be disconnected or an independent float charger used. Low power 2.0 amp chargers for storage charge will keep a fully charged battery fully charged but cannot recharge if the ODYSSEY battery becomes discharged. Racing Vehicles using total loss (no alternator) - standard automotive type chargers are not designed to return 105-108% of the energy removed. They normally boost charge to 80-95% and expect the alternator to complete the charge. Chargers listed on our website at www.odysseybattery.com are specifically designed for ODYSSEY batteries that are routinely deeply discharged. They provide the 105-108% recharge and then switch to storage charge. ODYSSEY Ultimizer™ chargers as listed on www.odysseybattery.com are specifically designed for ODYSSEY batteries and are required for routine deep discharge applications. They provide 105-108% recharge and then switch to a storage charge. To fully charge a 31-PC2150, a minimum of 40 amps are required with charger voltage within the range of 14.1V to 14.7V. It is imperative not to exceed 15.0V as this will cause the pressure valves to open and out-gas hydrogen, oxygen and water from inside the battery. This will shorten the life of the battery and cause premature failure. Some portable chargers exceed 15.0V, especially two-wheel garage chargers, so charging voltages should be verified by measuring the charging voltage during the time when the charging amperage is reducing from full output. The deep cycle charging voltage must be within 14.1V minimum to 14.7V maximum. If a standard automotive charger is used to boost charge a discharged battery because of an accessory left on, it is important to make sure the charging voltage does not exceed 15 volts during charge. A hand held voltmeter can be used to monitor this periodically. The following chart provides recharge times under this type of boost charging to an 80-95% recharge and then allows the vehicle charging system to complete the charge. 6 www.odysseybattery.com Publication No. 2602-0232, Rev. 6 - February 2008 24v Battery connection To power a 24V trolling motor, you will need to connect two ODYSSEY™ batteries in series.

To store off-season, measure the battery voltage to make sure it is fully charged, 12.84 volts or greater; recharge if necessary. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent any applied electrical load during storage. The ODYSSEY battery cannot freeze down to -40°C (-40°F), -30°C (-22°F) for PC2250, so it can be left in the vehicle. It can be stored for 2 years or more below 77°F. A 12V, 3 amp trickle charger can also be left connected to the battery if it is kept in storage for extended periods or if the battery is subject to parasitic loads during storage. Information on two such chargers we recommend, including where to buy them, can be found on our website at www.odysseybattery.com. www.odysseybattery.com Publication No. 2602-0232, Rev. 6 - February 2008 7 WARRANTY: EnerSys Energy Products Inc.
