AGM Batteries

AGM Batteries
AGM Batteries are now replacing many conventional lead-acid automotive batteries. AGM is an acronym for Absorbed Glass Mat. The acid in the batteries is absorbed into the plates of the battery, allowing for more durability, longevity, and safety. AGM batteries are completely sealed and spill-proof making them the ideal battery for your vehicle to purchase over the Internet. AGM batteries for automotive, commercial, industrial, and marine applications are available at Battery Sales.

Consumer Reports tested several AGM batteries and found they perform better than traditional batteries. Battery Sales inventories Odyssey AGM Batteries and Optima AGM Batteries and are the top of the line batteries. AGM batteries are available only in a limited number of group sizes. Check out Odyssey & Optima brand batteries at batterysales.com. For a limited time, there is a 10% discount on all Odyssey Batteries.

Odyssey Batteries

Why Use Odyssey Drycell Batteries?

Guaranteed longer service life- With a twelve year design life and a six-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 full years in Powersports or three full years in automotive, commercial and heavy-duty marine.

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 degrees C. 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 on its sides at any angle without sacrificing any performance attributes. There is no fear of any acid spillage as Odyssey batteries recycle the internal gas during operation or charging.

Superior vibration resistance- Odyssey batteries are of military grade and have endured rigours testes that demonstrate their overall ruggedness and exceptional tolerance of mechanical abuse.

Ready out of the box- Odyssey batteries are shipped fully charged. If Odyssey'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 Owner's Manual.

Worry-free shipping- The sealed design of the Odyssey battery eliminates the need for a acid vent tube; eliminating the fear of acid burns or damage to expensive chrome or paint. Owing to the Drycell design, the US Department of Transportation (US DOT) has classified the Odyssey battery as a dry battery, so it may be shipped worry-free by UPS/Federal Express or by air.

Longer storage life- Unlike conventional batteries that need to be recharged every six to twelve weeks the Odyssey battery, when fully charged, can be stored for up to 2 years at 25 degrees C (77 degrees F). Simply recharge and the Odyssey battery is returned to full power. At lower temperatures, storage times will be even longer.

Deep discharge recovery- Should the Odyssey battery become deeply discharged, simply recharge following instruction in the Odyssey Owner's Manual.

Military Grade- Only Odyssey batteries are based on the same Hawker battery technology offered by EnerSys to the military for aircraft and tank batteries.

Proper Care and Maintenace of Deep Cycle Batteries

Proper Care and Maintenance of Deep Cycle Batteries

  • New batteries should be given a full charge before use.

  • New deep cycle batteries need to by cycled several times before reaching full capacity (50-125 cycles, depending on type). Usage should be limited during this period.

  • Battery cables should be intact, and the connectors kept tight at all times. Systematic inspection is recommended.

  • Vent caps should be kept in place and tight during vehicle operation and battery charging.

  • Batteries should be kept clean and free of dirt and corrosion at all times.

  • Batteries should be watered after charging unless plates are exposed before charging. If exposed, plates should be covered by approximately 1/8" of acid. Check acid level after charging. The acid level should be kept 1/4" below the bottom of the fill well in the cell cover.

  • Water used to replenish batteries should be distilled or treated not to exceed 200 T.D.S. (total dissolved solids...parts per million). Particular care should be taken to avoid metallic contamination (acid).

  • For best battery life, batteries should not be discharged below 80% of their rated capacity. Proper battery sizing will help avoid excessive discharge.

  • Battery charges should be matched to fully charge batteries in an eight hour period. Defective chargers will damage batteries or severely reduce their performance.
  • Avoid charging at temperatures about 120 degrees F or ambient, whichever is higher.

  • Deep cycle batteries need to be equalized periodically. Equalizing is an extended, low current charge performed after the normal charge cycle. This extra charge helps keep all cells in balance. Actively used batteries should be equalized once per week. Manually timed chargers should have the charge time extended approximately 3 hours. Automatic chargers should be unplugged and reconnected after completing a charge.

  • In situations where multiple batteries are connected in series, parallel or series/parallel, replacement battery(ies) should be of the same size, age and usage level as the companion batteries. Do not put a new battery into a pack which has 50 or more cycles. Either replace with all new or use a good used battery.

  • Periodic battery testing is an important preventative maintenance procedure. Hydrometer readings of each cell (fully charged) gives an indication of balance and true charge level. Imbalance could mean the need for equalizing; is often a sign of improper charging or a bad cell. Voltage checks (open circuit, charged and discharged) can locate a bad battery or weak battery. Load testing will pick out a bad battery when other methods fail. A weak battery will cause premature failure of companion batteries.

  • Always use a matched voltage charger and battery pack system. An undersized charger will never get the job done, no matter how long you let it run. An over-sized charger will cause excess gassing and heat; this situation could cause explosions or other damage.

  • As batteries age, their maintenance requirements change. This means longer charging time and/or higher finish rate (higher amperage at the end of the charge). Usually older batteries need to be watered more often. And, their capacity decreases.

  • Lead acid batteries should be brought up to full charge at the earliest opportunity. Avoid continuously operating batteries in a partially charged condition. This will shorten their life and reduce their capacity.

  • Extreme temperatures can substantially affect battery performance and charging. Cold reduces battery capacity and retards charging. Heat increases water usage and can result in overcharging. very high temperatures can cause "thermal run-away" which may lead to an explosion or fire. If extreme temperature is an unavoidable part of an application, consult a battery charger specialist about ways to deal with the problem.

  • Inactivity can be extremely harmful to all lead acid batteries. If seasonal use is anticipated, we recommend the following: A.) completely charge the battery before storing. B.) Remove all electrical connections from the battery, including series/parallel connectors. C.) Store the battery in as cool a place as possible. However, do not store in a location which will consistently be below 32 degrees F. Batteries will discharge when stored, the lower the temperature the lower the self discharge. D.) When not in use, boost every two months.

US Battery

Founded in 1926, U.S. Battery manufacturing Company has established a long history in the manufacture and development of premium grade, deep cycle batteries. Originally, the product line was limited to heavy-duty batteries, many of which were specially designed to serve the fishing industry. As U.S. Battery grew, so did its product line; building a tradition of quality and durability. Today U.S. Battery is recognized as a leading manufacturer of Deep Cycle batteries specializing in golf car, sweeper/scrubber, aerial lifts, marine and special application types. U.S. Battery also produces a complete line of Low Maintenance commercial, farm, marine, military, and special purpose starting batteries.
