Odyssey Batteries - Now, Two Years Later

Odyssey batteries now two years later.

It has been about two years now since the flurry of discussion on using Odyssey thin lead technology for house banks appeared on sailing boards like this one. The discussion was academic because no one seemed to have any experience with them and no one could cite definitive results.

Well now, two years later, has anyone used them?

Specifically, were you able to harnass their superior charge acceptance rate when cycling your house bank between 50% and 80% such that you significantly reduced engine run time when charging from alternators?

I'll assume you implemented a 600AH-900AH house bank design, with nominal alternator output capability of 250A-300A, as that would be the required configuration to see a benefit when cycling between 50% to 80%.

Thank you,
