Advantages and limitations
Due to its massive starting power, heavy-duty commercial capacity, great durability and rapid recovery, it is the best AGM dual-purpose marine battery when compared to other conventional batteries of the same group available at the market. The Odyssey 31-PC2150S dual purpose battery has the ability to fulfill the high starting power demands of the specialized engines as well as the heavy load power demands for running various onboard appliances and last for long duration until the task is complete. It can handle even the difficult tasks that has rapid vibrations or in harshest climatic condition.
This battery has plates that are made from pure virgin lead with maximum surface area that offer optimized recycling capacity. The sealed design and recombinant technology allows the gases to mix and form water within the battery, eliminating the need of refilling. With this battery the user doesn’t have to worry about even external corrosion on the battery as the terminals are made from tin-plated brass that are resistant to corrosion. The tough container and robust cell connections protect the internal cell from being affected due to vibrations. The plates are designed in six packs by avoiding dead space, due to which this battery from Odyssey has 40% more reserve capacity than other conventional batteries of the same size. This battery is also flame proof.
As this battery is an AGM battery, charging can be an issue, as extra care should be maintained while charging this battery. The cost of this battery is quite high and it might not be able to meet the budget estimation of some buyers.
The Odyssey 31-PC2150S is a true heavy-duty commercial use dual-purpose battery. With this battery one need not worry about any maintenance, not even about the external corrosion. It is a perfect battery for the professionals who need an industrial duty marine battery.
