Not all 5th gen Odyssey's have AGM batteries. Only the models equipped with Auto Idle Stop come with the AGM.

Good point though, make sure you charge appropriately with the proper charger if you're going to do it.
Not correct. My EX with no auto idle stop has an AGM battery. I assume that's the same as a gel battery? Otherwise, I stand corrected :).

Update: 22 days later my van won't start again. Battery is dead again. I just had it boosted and then towed back to the dealership. Can't wait to hear the excuses they have considering its a new battery and new alternator....
There must be a steady drain somewhere in the electrical system. Something is leaking to ground. I'm curious as to what they say too. Good (or shall I say "better") luck.

Parasitic drains. An be checked for and located if they are present. I would hope you wouldn’t need to ask them to check for this but it might be worth mentioning just in case.
