i have a brand new odyssey pc680 and after 2 weeks its dead..i drive the car once every 2 weeks..last time i jump started it let it warm up and when i turn it off it didnt start again battery was dead...after been on the car for 1 month..the 1st 2 weeks it started up fine...
since its an agm battery what charger can i use outside the car to keep it charged...or should i use the warranty and get a new one..
I've drained my PC680 a few times, but I made sure to buy the Odyssey specific battery charger and was able to bring it up to full charge every time. I've been told that they don't take too kindly to being jumped and that it can damage the cells (don't know how true it is).
I also brought a couple of other Odyssey batteries back from the dead. Good Battery/Tender to have in the garage.

Well the battery charges when your car is running. So ANY charger will work. Its a deep cycle so you can kill it and recharge it for years! How far dead it is determine the life span of the battery.
A normal dead battery is a situation where the car doesn't start and the voltage is low lets say 12.0v-12.5v. You can do that many times. If you kill it very far 10v-11v its possible to damage the battery.
My stinger spv35 I have killed many many many many times. The last time it was way down to 9 volts. I thought it was ruined. But it came back!
Your battery should come back just fine with a standard 10A charger.
