Among the lineup of residential opener accessories and garage door parts is something very important – an emergency battery backup to provide you with dependable garage door operation during blackouts, severe weather and thunderstorms.
This model is from the Overhead Door Company. It provides true peace of mind and can be easily installed. It is compatible with Odyssey and Destiny garage door openers, which combine power, speed, and reliability with quiet operation.
This accessory allows an opener to operate a garage door at 3½ inches per second, and in the event of an extended power outage, it can run as many as 50 cycles for 24 hours after the electricity has been lost. Thanks to several mounting options, the unit is designed to be inconspicuous. It is powered and charged with a cable that runs between the unit and the opener, meaning there’s no need to plug it into an outlet. Installation can be done by homeowners themselves or Overhead Door distributors.
The device has an 8-amp SLA (sealed lead acid) battery from Interstate, which is one of America’s biggest battery replacement companies. Within 48 hours, the battery can reach full charge. Once installed, you can rest easy knowing you’ll always be able to access your garage with or without electricity. So, when shopping for accessories and other garage door parts, be sure this one is on your list.
