Re: Oddysey PC-680 Problem and looking for source of Oddysey 6 AMP Charger
AGM batteries require the highest voltages to gain or maintain a full charge. There are other battery chargers out there that can do the job so you don't need the specific Odysey model. When looking for a charger, you should be more concerned with the charging voltage curve than you are with the amperage, as long as you're in the general range. In other words, a 2 amp charger designed for AGM batteries would do the job (but slower), but an 8 amp would probably be too much for the Odysey.
I recently bit the bullet and bought a BatteryMinder 12248 after the better half stole my wall wart version for her bikes. It wasn't cheap but I'm sold on their technology with my OE battery on year six still showing 12.8V. I figured the price was worth it since it will work on any current technology lead-acid battery and my history with the previous version showed their desulfation actually works. With settings for AGM, Flooded, Gel, 2/4/8 amps, I hopefully won't need to buy another charger anytime soon.
