The 12-volt Odyssey battery is designed for a service life of six years in construction vehicles and has a two-year storage life at room temperature. The battery doesn't require the addition of water, and terminals need not be cleaned or tightened after installation. Other advantages include slow loss of power at the end of the battery's service life, superior construction materials and both deep-cycle operation and high cranking power with fast-charge capability.
