Frequently Asked Questions about Odyssey Batteries
Pete answers your questions about Odyssey batteries.
What’s the warranty status on this battery, and how would I go about it if the battery decides to malfunction? I am looking at the Odyssey PC680 Battery Kit you offer for 158.80 ( That does include the battery, bracket and SAE terminals correct?
The Odyssey PC680 has a 3 year warranty in some applications (zero warranty in other applications). Please visit this Odyssey site and read the warranty details that come with battery. Should you have an issue with the battery, you would need to ship it to us to test. We would then determine if the issue was caused by ownership (not following warranty instructions) or by manufacturers defect. If we determine that the manufacturers are at fault, a new battery would be sent to you from Odyssey.
PS – The biggest problem we see with these batteries is that the consumer is unaware of the charging requirements. For example, they like to be charged above 14.4v. If they don’t get that high voltage charge, eventually they fail. But if they get what they want, the battery will last a very long time. I’ve got the same Odyssey battery in a vehicle for 7 years.
Can I use one of these SAE Brass terminals you offer on your website for my PC1100 Odyssey Battery?
Ken – Sorry but they do not fit the PC1100 Series battery
Pete – thanks for your reply, just wondering can you make me one for pc1100?
Ken – I cannot actually make one for you, but I am sure we can find you one. The PC1100 has a different style terminal connection. It is a threaded stainless steel stud where as most common size Odyssey batteries like the PC680, PC925, and PC1200 are all more of a threaded anchor. The PC series Odyssey batteries use a threaded M6 anchor that you would screw a bolt into or in this case use the SAE Brass adapter terminal for a car setup. The ER series (hence called the PC370, PC950, and PC1100) are all M6 ss studs because they where designed for powersports like motorcycles, dirt bikes, jet ski etc. Most of these applications use a ring terminal as a connection.
Bottom line: You will need the opposite style.
