2 Batteries in 1
Odyssey batteries combine in one box the characteristics of two separate batteries. It can deep cycle (be recharged) as well as provide enormous cranking power.
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.

This battery has almost three times the CCA and more reserve capacity than the OEM battery that came with my car. It fits perfectly, even with the pad that wraps the battery.
A perfect size battery with great specifications.
Be advised that the dimensions, length in particular, do not apply to the base of the battery. After carefully taking measurements of the fitted battery slot in my car -Saturn Aura 2.4- this battery was the only one that would still fit length wise while also providing additional cranking amps over the current acid battery. But I was also not going to be able to use the battery cover anymore as this battery is considerably taller as well but it was a sacrifice I was willing to make. Turns out this battery's foot print is considerably shorter than the acid battery it replaced! Now I have to think of something to wedge in between the battery and battery housing to hold it firmly in place. This is my first time purchasing a performance battery and was too busy reading reviews and specs that I never took notice of the curvature of the battery. Had I known this I would have bought 34-PC1500T instead which would have required very little and easy modification to the car battery holder but would have fit snug and possibly have allowed the use of the cover since it's not as tall either. Odyssey should include the dimensions for the battery's foot print in their listings. Now to wait and see on battery life. This battery is going to be used in a daily commuter of short distances with the occasional trips to Reno and South Tahoe during hot and very cold climates. The car may receive in the future a single 8" subwoofer powered by a 400 watt or 1000 watt amplifier.
This fits just right in a 3100 1951 Chevy truck and lots of cranking power/
Was worried about the fit as it was 3/4 of an inch taller than OEM but fit with room to spare. Car rarely moves so I hope this battery will hold up to prolonged low drain over the long run. Its a little heavier then the Optima but has more CCAs than the Optima and weight isn't an issue with a Z!
stock ford battery for the GT is garbage. this thing rocks.
