EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, is paying tribute to the 25th Anniversary of ODYSSEY® batteries with the launch of the “ODYSSEY® Battery Journey” video series. Each video takes viewers along for the ride through the customer’s personal journey using this virtually maintenance-free power solution and illustrates the battery’s diverse appeal across global demographics and applications, including Automotive/Truck, Powersports, Marine, Recreational Vehicles (RVs), Heavy Duty and Fleet Vehicles.
The first three videos are now live at https://www.odysseybattery.com/25th-anniversary/:
Nic Ashby at Rockstar Performance Garage: Nic Ashby opened Rockstar Performance Garage nearly a decade ago. He soon started installing ODYSSEY® batteries in all his custom-built automotive and off-road vehicles, including his personal rig, the GRDLOC, and the team’s most recent installation, the Cyberpunk 2077 Mustang. His “journey” video shows how ODYSSEY® batteries deliver deep-cycle reserve power and maximum cranking power to his custom builds.
Jim Marsden, Europe’s Most Successful Extreme Off-road Racer: Jim Marsden started Gigglepin 4×4 in 1997 at age 23 and began using ODYSSEY® batteries in 2002. He now uses them for all his racing needs. Recognized as Europe’s most successful Extreme Off-Road Racer, Marsden has more than 50 titles and more than 80 podiums. In 2019, he became the first person to win the Croatia Trophy for a record three times.
Warfighter Made: Warfighter Made is an organization that adapts vehicles to accommodate the needs of service members and veterans who have sustained combat wounds, other injuries and illnesses. The custom vehicles also reflect the personalities of the people for whom they are intended. Warfighter Made equips all its vehicles with ODYSSEY® batteries for their dependability and capability to provide sufficient power to onboard devices, including those added to assist the drivers. In addition to the custom vehicles, Warfighter Made provides recreational therapy to service members and vets in events that give them the opportunity to drive, and even race, off-road vehicles, which are also adapted to their needs and powered with ODYSSEY® batteries.
“The range of applications and performance demands that ODYSSEY® batteries handle enables them to deliver trustworthy and long-lasting service for every one of our customers including custom builders, racecar drivers and thrill seekers anxious to take their driving experience to the next level,” said Dave McMullen, Senior Director of Marketing, Transportation & Specialty at EnerSys. “ODYSSEY® batteries are engineered to provide enough power to not only start engines in high-performance vehicles, but power accessories to enhance the experience of drivers and passengers. This video series was created to capture the steadfastness of ODYSSEY® batteries, which are constructed to endure harsh conditions and extreme temperatures.”
Engineered with Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, ODYSSEY® batteries provide engine cranking pulses up to 2,700 amps for five seconds, which is double that of equally sized conventional lead acid batteries. The rugged, Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction and non-spillable design of ODYSSEY® batteries protect against high-impact shock and mechanical vibration, helping to provide longer service life. 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).
