Pure Lead technology batteries such as this were developed in the 1950’s for aircraft engine starting. Two aviation specification versions of this battery were used on the Harrier VTO aircraft to start the Rolls Royce Pegasus engines. The ODYSSEY PC950 has for many years been the battery of choice for serious Rally and Racecars and is recognised as the most popular racing battery of all time. This battery can be mounted at any attitude (inverted not recommended) and due to it’s dimensions it is extremely popular as it is able to be fitted in small out of the way locations.
As with others in the Powervamp range this battery uses advanced maintenance free Pure Lead technology with plates less than 1.0 mm thick.
The Odyssey Extreme Series
Odyssey Extreme batteries hold up to twice the overall power of conventional batteries, doing double the duty, therefore giving double the performance.
The Odyssey Extreme Series available from Powervamp offer both enormous cranking power and deep cycle reserve power, giving you the best of both worlds.
Even at very low temperatures, Odyssey Extreme batteries have the power to provide engine cranking pulses in excess of 2250 amps for 5 seconds – double to triple that of equally sized batteries on the market. With the ability to handle 400 charge-discharge cycles, they are as robust as they are reliable.
The Odyssey Extreme Series are made with flat plates made of 99.99% pure lead, not lead alloy. This additional purity allows for thinner plates, meaning each battery can hold more at a time, thus providing the plate surface area required for additional power. That’s how Odyssey Extreme batteries produce twice as much power as conventional batteries.
Stronger for longer
Odyssey Extreme batteries don’t just hold more power, they’re also designed to last up to 3 times as long as conventional batteries. Odyssey Extreme batteries have an 8-12 year design life and a 3-10 year service life.
This is achieved using the specialised design features below:
Tin Alloy Coated Brass Terminals – ensuring secure, corrosion-free cable connections
Robust Intercell Connections – resist vibration and eliminate internal sparking
Compressed TPPL Plate Separators – for extreme vibration resistance
Pure Lead Plates – extremely thin, pure lead plates provide more power for longer
The Odyssey Extreme Series is ideal for just about anything, just about anywhere, including:
