On May 26th, National Road Trip Day will be celebrated to kick off the summer season. Starting with Memorial Day weekend, millions of Americans will take to the road to visit friends and family, while paying tribute to our fallen American heroes. Memorial Day weekend is also the unofficial start to summer, which brings plenty of camping and weekending to many different locations. If a Recreational Vehicle (RV) is your way of transportation during this National Road Trip Day, or even throughout the summer season, consider powering it with an ODYSSEY® battery from EnerSys®.
ODYSSEY® batteries are manufactured with proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, allowing the pure lead plates to be made thinner so more fit inside the battery case. This provides more surface area than conventional batteries for extra power in a given group size and ample cranking even at a low Depth of Discharge (DOD). ODYSSEY® batteries are extremely temperature tolerant, with an operating range from -40°F (-40°C) to 140°F (60°C). The battery also offers greater cycle life than conventional batteries for frequent deep discharges that can occur when powering on-board accessories.
Even though RVs are designed to endure most weather conditions, they still require attention, especially if they sit dormant throughout the winter. ODYSSEY® batteries, however, are designed to be stored up to two years at 77°F (25°C) from a fully charged state. Their densely packed flat plates minimize unused space, unlike popular spiral-wound batteries with a six-pack design, to provide 15 percent more plate surface area for more overall power. ODYSSEY® batteries include a massive deep-cycle reserve capacity, as well as enormous cranking power that is enough to provide engine-cranking pulses in excess of 2250 amps for five seconds. The battery’s vibration resistant and non-spillable Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) design means it can handle the harsh conditions the road may present.
Start off National Road Trip Day by choosing an ODYSSEY® battery for your RV Applications.
