One of the Best Off-Road AGM Group 34 Battery 4X4 Adventures

Review Odyssey Battery 34R PC1500T

The typical battery Jeep Wrangler JK/JL owners install as an upgrade to the stock battery

 

There are many other options available on the market but the Odyssey 34R PC1500T remains one of the most popular among its competitors because it's easy to find, priced under $500, widely spread on the Jeep/ 4X4 scene, and highly reliable.

*Dual Purpose = Combines both for starting (high cranking power) and deep cycling (use accessories while the engine is off). It also maintains the charge of the battery for a longer period of time. It's 2 batteries in 1.

 

  • Massive cranking power designed for heavy pick-up trucks (example: Ford F-350). All plates are made of 99.9% pure virgin lead (not recycled lead). Won't spill during rough off-roading on the worst trail. You can even mount it on the side (if you have a hold down allowing it for your Jeep JK or JL) and it won't spill at all. Level a conductivity is at least 300% higher than any factory or budget battery. Very strong posts and terminals that won't break when exposed to the stress and vibrations of driving on unmaintained logging roads. Zero maintenance required: you plug it and that's it. I know Jeepers working in the bush who have never replaced their Odyssey battery after over five Yukon winters. However, if you live in a cold area, I still recommend you add a battery warmer (it's a blanket that keeps the core of your battery warm during the night) like the Zerostart & Temro.
