    Default New Odyssey Extreme Battery not charging

    Hello all,

    not sure what happened to it AS i got it from Amazon..(around $450) and I believe these are the best batteries available.
    Its stuck at 10 volts while charging. I switched away from Optima in 2009 when Johnson Controls took them over. They have a very high failure rate according to resellers (honest)

    I took it to a battery shop they did some real advanced testing on it and they couldn't get it past 10 volts after charge . Its only a few weeks old so freezing when I got it not likely.. What Happened before only Amazon knows

    Anyway I wrote Amazon they tell me to go to Enersys, Enersys tells me to go to Amazon


    These are not AGM batteries but are batteries that are made from pure lead no recycled or mixed alloys .

    What would you suggest for a solution?

    I also hope this information will be useful to others.

    10V guarantees one dead cell, doesn't it? I think every cell is 2V in whatever lead electrochemical jiggery pokery.
    Regardless, there should be a better warranty avenue than you're experiencing.
    Can one talk to humans at Amazon?

    yes dead cell is what i assumed from experience and less 2v.

    10v means it's fucked. If you have no warranty, then you are fucked. I know no means of repair.

    Sounds like you ordered and it was fulfilled by Amazon and sold by Enerysys and now you are getting the run around.

    You're on fire!
    But I think he's still got a few months to nurse that other one along and fully diagnose its issues. *As long as a 944 becomes approved for boosting.

    Can you find him some scientific papers that say his 944 is NOT approved for boosting. Owners Manual is not a reputable source, kthxbye.

    If amazon and the merchant are giving you the run around - document the chats and phone calls as your attempt to solve the issue and then open up a CC dispute. You will get a chargeback and case closed. Ive dealt with these kinds of games many times. The battery is kaput.

    Sounds like if you can prove you bought on amazon via a credit card purchase. You'll be doing a charge back if amazon doesn't change its mentality.
