Odyssey PC680MJT Drycell Battery
The Odyssey PC680MJT is a 12 volt 520CA/170CCA 17 Ah drycell battery w/ metal jacket and automotive SAE terminals capable of delivering up to 520 cranking amps and 170 cold cranking amps. Its military grade AGM design allows it to take the place of not only a starting battery with its unsurpassed cranking power but also a “true” deep cycle. Its pure lead design allows the battery to be completely discharged and recharged for over 400 times without any damage to the plates. The Odyssey PC680MJT’s pure lead internal plates are resistant to corrosion and sulfating; the main cause for battery failure. We recommend using the Odyssey Ultimizer shown below for charging but any conventional battery charger or alternator up to 15.2 volts and 25 amps will be sufficient. The “MJ” refers to the metal jacket that adds an extra barrier to heat above 140°F and the “T” refers to the automotive SAE adapter/post.
Twice the overall power and three times the service life of conventional batteries
Some batteries offer enormous cranking power. Others, deep cycle reserve power. Unbeatable ODYSSEY® Extreme Series™ batteries do both. Even at very low temperatures, ODYSSEY Extreme Series batteries have the power to provide engine-cranking pulses in excess of 2250 amps for 5 seconds – double to triple that of equally sized conventional batteries. And they can handle 400 charge-discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge.
How so much power is possible
ODYSSEY Extreme Series batteries are made with flat plates made of 99.99% pure lead – not lead alloy. Pure lead plates can be made thinner, so we can fit more of them in the battery. More ODYSSEY battery plates mean more plate surface area. And that means more power – twice as much as conventional batteries.
Packed with more power
Like many popular spiral-wound batteries, ODYSSEY Extreme Series batteries employ dry cell Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) technology to contain acid, allowing the battery to be installed even on its side. But the densely packed flat plates in an ODYSSEY Extreme Series battery avoid the “dead space” between cylinders in a “six pack” design. The result is 15% more plate surface area — and that translates to more power!
Phenomenal starting power and massive deep cycle reserve power in one battery!
Some batteries provide enormous cranking power. Others, deep cycle reserve power. The revolutionary ODYSSEY® battery is designed to do both.
How is this possible? The answer begins with flat plates made of 99.99% pure virgin lead – not lead alloy. Pure lead plates can be made thinner, so we can fit more of them in the battery. More ODYSSEY battery plates mean more plate surface area. And that means more power – twice as much as conventional batteries.
In fact, ODYSSEY batteries are capable of providing engine cranking pulses in excess of 2250 amps for 5 seconds – double to triple that of equally sized conventional batteries, even at very low temperatures. And they can handle 400 charge-discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge.
This extreme combination of power and performance makes ODYSSEY batteries perfect for a range of applications, including automotive/LTV, marine, commercial, and powersports.
