Designed for work-truck operators, EnerSys now offers Odyssey Pro batteries, engineered with an advanced carbon additive for more reserve capacity (as much as 10 percent) and longer cycle life. “Odyssey Pro batteries are manufactured to meet the power demands brought on by an increase in onboard electronics…as well as upgrades to the design of commercial fleet applications,” pointed out Dave McMullen, Senior Director of Marketing, at EnerSys. Featuring Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, Odyssey Pro batteries provide deep-cycle reserve power and maximum cranking power, with engine cranking pulses up to 2,150 amps for five seconds, double to triple that of equally sized conventional lead-acid batteries. The rugged, Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction and non-spillable design of Odyssey Pro batteries protect against high-impact shock and mechanical vibration. These batteries are designed to handle 400 charge-discharge cycles to 80 percent Depth of Discharge (DOD). Backed by an industry-leading warranty, they feature a three- to 10-year service life and a two-year storage life at 77°F (25°C). They are available in a wide variety of sizes with Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) as high as 2,250.
