EnerSys says its Odyssey 75/86-PC1230 dual-purpose battery is designed for automotive/light truck and heavy-duty/fleet applications, and offers cyclic and starting, lighting and ignition functionality. The battery, which consists of a 12-volt absorbed glass mat (AGM) design, offers the option of 75-side terminals and 86-top terminals.

It provides 1,230 cranking amps for five seconds at room temperature and a 90-minute reserve capacity, according to the company; additional specifications include a CCA (cold cranking amps) rating of 710 and a nominal capacity of 55 Ah at the 20-hour rate of discharge. Other specifications include: MCA, 815; dimensions, 9.46-by-6.99-by 7.92 inches; and 60 inch-pounds torque for terminal connection.

The AGM design eliminates the need for an acid vent tube and recycling of internal gas during operation and charging, making it safe for mounting inside passenger compartments and in any orientation except inverted, EnerSys says; in addition, the rugged construction and endurance of rigorous testing makes the battery exceptionally tolerant of mechanical abuse.
