EnerSys introduces Odyssey Pro batteries

EnerSys has introduced Odyssey Pro batteries, which the company says are engineered with an advanced carbon additive for more reserve capacity (up to 10%) and longer cycle life. According to the company, the batteries feature Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology to provide performance and long-lasting power for a variety of vehicle applications, including heavy-duty. TPPL technology also preserves natural resources, requiring no additional battery watering and improving charging efficiency.

Odyssey Pro batteries provide engine cranking pulses up to 2,150 amps for five seconds. The company says its Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction and non-spillable design protects against high-impact shock and mechanical vibration, helping to provide longer service life. Odyssey batteries are designed to handle 400 charge-discharge cycles to 80% Depth of Discharge (DOD). They feature a three- to 10-year service life and a two-year storage life at 77°F (25°C). They are available in multiple sizes with Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) as high as 2,250.
