EnerSys® Celebrates ODYSSEY® Battery 25th Anniversary at 2021 AAPEX Show

EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, will recognize 25 years of ODYSSEY® battery production at the 2021 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in booth A1838. The exhibit will feature exciting giveaways, interactive demonstrations and showcase the ODYSSEY® battery and charger product line. AAPEX will take place November 2 to 4 in the Sands Expo Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.

As part of the celebration, the company will also display its newly expanded ODYSSEY® battery portfolio, which now includes ODYSSEY® Performance batteries, a cost-effective choice designed to handle the increased use of on-board accessories in today’s vehicles; ODYSSEY® Extreme batteries, a true dual-purpose solution that offers enormous cranking and deep cycle reserve power; and ODYSSEY® PRO batteries, engineered with an advanced carbon additive for more reserve capacity (up to 10 percent) and longer cycle life. The entire line of virtually maintenance-free batteries, featuring proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, provide trustworthy performance and long-lasting power for a variety of vehicle applications, including automotive/truck, powersports, marine, Recreational Vehicles (RVs), heavy duty and fleet vehicles.

“For the past 25 years, the ODYSSEY® battery brand has built a reputation for exceptional reliability and performance, with twice the power and three times the longevity of conventional lead acid batteries,” said Dave McMullen, Senior Director of Marketing, Transportation & Specialty at EnerSys. “Aftermarket suppliers have found that their customers appreciate how ODYSSEY® batteries provide a premium power solution that can start the engine while handling the growing number of electronic accessories in today’s vehicles. With the acquisition of NorthStar® Battery Company two years ago and the consolidation of their product offering into our own, we have significantly expanded and enhanced our production capacity to better serve the market.”

ODYSSEY® batteries provide deep cycle reserve power and maximum cranking power, with engine cranking pulses up to 3,125 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). They are available in a wide variety of sizes with Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) as high as 2,250.
