no retrofitting required!Katman, did you retrofit Odyssey brass terminals onto the lithium battery? I just recently bought a lithium battery but don't have an optimal solution for connecting it yet.
Also, what routine care and maintenance is required for optimal performance? Do you charge it nightly? Is it able to turn the car over on successive tries (for example, bogging while shifting into first)...??
With the supplied hardware (mainly the square nuts), the ody terminals thread right into these these supplied nuts (same thread pitch). You can sorta see the supplied hardware in the last photo.
I just got this battery the other day, so the maintenancing of it is sorta new to me though I did read up on it before purchasing. It does have a power indicator button/gauge on the top (see below). No need to charge it nightly, you can just disconnect the ground if the car isn't being used very often. You can also buy a battery tender or charger for the battery as well. Some lithium battery brands have their own tenders/chargers. The WPS one I bought has a built-in cell balancer whereas other brands rely on the tender/charger to handle the cell balancing duties. Thats why the WPS brand doesn't have its own special tender/charger, you can use say the Bluepoint battery tender for instance. The specs say the battery doesn't need a charge for up to a year if not being used.
I bought a 380cca model so excessive cranking shouldn't be a problem at all for this battery. I've gone through two Odysee PC680's in the last couple years and I'm over that shitty battery. Lithium has been the new frontier for a while, finally jumped on board!
Which lithium battery model & brand did you buy exactly and whats the CCA specs?
