Odyssey PC545 Battery
2 Batteries in 1 The Odyssey PC545 battery combines in one box the characteristics of two separate batteries. It can deep cycle (be recharged) as well as provide enormous cranking power. Military Grade Only Hawker Odyssey batteries are based on the same battery technology offered by Hawker to the military for aircraft and tank batteries. Odyssey batteries are of military grade and have endured rigorous tests that demonstrate their overall ruggedness and exceptional tolerance of mechanical abuse. 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° 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 a fast charge.

Best bike battery for the moneyDec 10, 2009
This battery replaces the same battery purchased back in 2001. Nine years of trouble free abuse isn't too bad. Often would leave the bike for six months or more without riding. Anyway if your a rider that may get a bit too busy to ride for periods of time. Leave your bike unattended this is the battery for you.

Great Battery, never wants to die...May 09, 2011
I bought this battery to replace the Power-Wheels stock 12V one that was dead in my kids ride-on Tonka truck. To my surprise, it fit in the original battery holder, I just had to use some longer M5 bolts to use the stock battery hold-down. The kids have been using the truck for nearly a month now, i have not recharged it yet! Great battery.

Great Battery for my Snapper Zero Turn MowerNov 05, 2009
I bought this to replace the exact same model PC 545 Odyssey battery that I have used in my Snapper Zero Turn 18hp riding mower. The first Odyssey battery I had for this mower lasted 8 years!!
I knew it was done when it would no longer hold a charge.
This Odyssey battery has saved me the expense and the work involved changing lawn and garden lead acid type batteries every 2 or 3 years. That is what I had to do before buying the Odyssey.
One word of advice- use a battery tender or-- better yet-- the Odyssey charger/maintainer on this battery and it will last for a long while.
I used a Deltran battery Tender for 8 years on my first Odyssey. This time I bought the Odyssey charger/maintainer when I bought this new Odyssey battery. I want to see if it works better. The Deltran did FINE but it crapped out (internal short) just about the same time the old Odyssey battery did. So I am trying a new chrager/maintainer on the new battery. From all other reviews of the Odyssey products I have read, I should be fine!
I will post if I run into any trouble!
This is a great battery-- but-- you must charge it to more than 80%. The explanation of why is on the Odyssey web site. Not a long read but DO read the explanation of why normal battery chargers will not charge the Odyssey fully. After reading at the Odyssey website -- BUY this battery!!

Buy it and read the manual or you will waste $Mar 20, 2011
As the other review stated that the Odyssey died after a few months, yes just like it says it will in the manual if your bike has too small of an alternator and you ride short trips at low speeds! This is a different AGM battery that will get a very long service life IF you get an approved charger that charges and floats at different levels than all other batteries. These batteries give extreme cranking amp plus the ability to deep cycle which few batteries can do. My HD starts right up now since I have a high torque starter. Get the Battery Minder 12248 WITH the temp monitor for optimal charge and floating. If you don't follow these recommendations then dont waste your money and get a regular AGM that will die sooner!

Odyssey 545Oct 20, 2009
By T. Buckman
I bought an Odyssey PC545MJ in April, 2006 for $102 delivered. I have used it for three years in my F440 race cars. It is light weight and powerful and has been subject to heat and vibration in my application and was excellent until it failed recently. Please note that in order to get a metal jacket Odyssey, you must order model #PC545MJ, not PC545. I intend to buy another as a replacement.
