View Full Version : Advantage of metal jacket in PC1200?
01-26-2009, 05:06 AM
Alrighty then, been talking with flyingwil about the Odyssey PC1200. Since I dislike troubling the guy with my thoughts, I'd figured to trouble the rest of ya lol. My question is, What is the advantage of having a metal jacket on the PC1200MJT? Is it there for protection or stability or something totally different?

Keeps the Aliens from stealing your battery power. :victory:
I don't know why it's there. I would be interested in such were I looking to put a battery in a place where it might see gravel occasionally sprayed at it.

I have both an Odessey 1700 and a 925, both with the metal jackets installed in my 4Runner. I have heard they help provide additional exterior support to limit potential swelling in the heat. I really don't know if that's a fact or was just somebody's opinion.
I personally like the idea just from an exterior physical protection standpoint. I have been running these for a while now and like them a lot.
This may come from my past experience with a cooling fan self destructing and throwing damaging debris everywhere on my past 90 4Runner. That incident punched a hole in my plastic battery. Not a concern anymore with the metal jacket.

Thanks for the quick replies...I never thought of stability, though could understand it being a protective device. I'll have to send an email out to odyssey and get the low down on that.

Good deal, post back up the facts when you get them. Inquiring minds want to know. If not, we just make somehting up that sounds good. :sombrero:
