Odyssey Batteries

Unlike other automotive batteries, Odyssey car batteries have flat plates made of 99.99% pure lead – not lead alloy. The thin design of the plates allow more plates to fit inside the battery. More battery plates mean more plate surface area which means more power. That’s twice as much as conventional batteries!

The Redtop® will outperform and outlast more traditional batteries in demanding cranking/starting applications.

Fullriver Batteries

The Fullriver HC Battery Series features advanced, high-compression AGM technology to provide a genuine no-compromise battery for high-performance engine starting and dual-purpose starting/cyclic applications. You get the best of both worlds with a Fullriver Battery – a spill-proof AGM battery providing even more cranking power than conventional starting car batteries combined with true deep-cycling capability.


There can be a multitude of reasons for a flat car battery. Here are some common causes:

  • Undercharging
  • Misuse
  • Driving habits
  • Parasitic drain
  • Age
  • Weather

Get in touch with Challenge Batteries branch if you have recently experienced a flat car battery. Using our diagnostic tools and expert knowledge, we can determine whether your vehicle simply requires a new battery or if there are any underlying issues with your vehicle that has affected your car battery.


There are a few things you can do to get the best value out of your automotive battery and extend its life as much as possible.

  • Check to see if the top of the battery is clean and the terminals are corrosion-free
  • Check the voltage using a voltmeter. 12.7v – 12.8v indicates a fully charged battery.
  • If the voltage is below 12.5 volts, recharge your battery straightaway.
  • If your battery has removable caps, check the water level at least every 6 months. Refill as needed with distilled water.
  • Charge your car battery every 3 months to maintain optimal performance.

Contrary to popular belief, simply going for a drive is not sufficient to recharge a flat car battery. Going for a drive can certainly help maintain a healthy battery but it won’t help revive a flat battery. The only way to properly recharge a flat car battery is to use a battery charger with high amp ratings. At R&J Batteries, we carry battery chargers from top brands such as Lester Electrical, Projecta and more.
