EnerSys to Spotlight ODYSSEY Battery Line at 2023 TMC Show 

Full portfolio of advanced ODYSSEY batteries for heavy-duty applications to be showcased in booth no. 209.

EnerSys, a global provider of stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY batteries, will feature its full portfolio of ODYSSEY batteries for heavy-duty applications at the American Trucking Association (ATA) Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) 2023 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition. The advanced battery line-up will be on display in ODYSSEY battery booth no. 209 at this year’s technical conference, which takes place Feb. 27 to March 2, at The Orange County Convention Center in Orange County, Florida.  

“Our selection of ODYSSEY batteries for heavy-duty applications offers fleet operators with tremendous value by providing multiple operational benefits including dependability, performance and longevity, which often lead to a lower total cost of ownership,” said Dave McMullen, senior director of global marketing, Transportation & Specialty at EnerSys. “Virtually maintenance-free and engineered with proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead technology for greater surface area and deep-cycling capacity, they are the ideal power solution for drivers dealing with idling restrictions or seeking to achieve less manual labor requirements and frequent battery replacements.”

ODYSSEY Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) batteries are engineered with pure lead plates that can be made thinner than those in conventional flooded lead acid batteries, so more fit into the same size footprint to provide greater surface area, according to EnerSys. This enables more electrochemical reactions with the electrolyte to produce more power than battery chemistries of comparable size, the company explains. In addition to greater starting power, ODYSSEY batteries provide ample deep cycling reserve power, with engine cranking pulses up to 3,125 amps for five seconds, which is double that of equally sized conventional lead acid batteries. 

They also feature sealed Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction, which packs the plates tightly in absorbent fiberglass separators that hold the electrolyte and make the batteries virtually maintenance-free, the company says. The rugged, AGM construction and non-spillable design of ODYSSEY batteries also protect against high-impact shock and mechanical vibration, helping to provide longer service life. Backed by warranty, they feature a two-year storage life at 77°F (25°C) and are available in a wide variety of sizes with Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) as high as 2,250.
