Guest Blog: Seven signs indicating it’s time for a heavy duty vehicle battery upgrade

In an article that appears on, ODYSSEY® Battery lists the seven most common signs that it’s time to replace the battery: the engine cranks slowly when being started, lights dim or problems arise with electronic/electrical devices, the engine won’t start after sitting overnight or after it was just turned off, accessory runtime is decreasing, additional loads are added to the vehicle, the vehicle is operated in extreme-temperature conditions, and the vehicle is operated in high-vibration environments.


As heavy-duty vehicle drivers face larger hotel loads and extreme weather conditions, the Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology of ODYSSEY® batteries provides longer life and more reliable service.
