HI all, I recently installed an odyssey 2150 (http://www.odysseybatteries.com/battery/pc2150.htm)
I am very disappointed by the result on my ARB fridg, on hi setting on heavy use (car warm, opening the fridg frequently basically the compressor running full time) I only get about 4-5 hours before a red light start blipping
on the lo setting, I get about 12 hours
I read on the arb pdf that when the battery protection kicks in, the green light should turn orange and the red light stat blipping. In my case I think only the red light flash (blip), and the other light shows green. Cant find nothing at ARB about that...
Average power consumption at 37°F cabinet temperature, 90°F ambient
ARB 50QT 1.35 Amps/Hour
Odyssey 2150 has: Reserve capacity: 205 minutes on 25amps
If I use about 5 amps when the compressor is running, I should get 1000 minutes or about 17 hours...
I see on arb pdf that the safety at low on the fridg kicks in at Low 10.1 volts
wondering how much capacity the odyssey should give me before dropping under 10.1 volts, should it be more than 90% discharge?
I got all my stuff to install a 2nd odyssey, next question will be should I put them simply in parallel or should I install my 500 amps solenoid on the ignition to protect 1 of my battery?
do you guys think that with 2 odysseys in parallel, discharged to 10.1 volts, should be strong enough to start my FJ?
