READING, Pennsylvania, July 24, 2018 – EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, announces the availability of its ODYSSEY® Performance Series™ Group 49 and 94R batteries.
The ODYSSEY® Performance Series™ 49-950 battery provides engine-cranking pulses up to 1,700 amps and 950 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA). It is designed for popular Jeep®, Dodge® and some BMW® and Mercedes-Benz® vehicles introduced over the last 10 years. The ODYSSEY® Performance Series™ 94R-850 battery provides engine-cranking pulses up to 1,500 amps and 850 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA). It is specifically designed for popular Chevrolet®, and some Jeep® and Dodge® vehicles introduced over the last 10 years. Both batteries feature Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, as well as Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) separators that hold acid in place to prevent spills, even when installed on their sides.
“The ODYSSEY® Performance Series™ 49-950 and 94R-850 batteries expand our product offering, providing a range of vehicles that are just starting to need a battery replacement with an effective solution,” said Alan Kohler, transportation and specialty marketing manager at EnerSys. “The TPPL technology provides the performance customers expect for today’s vehicles.”
TPPL technology is applied to the manufacturing of flat plates made of 99.99 percent pure lead, not lead alloy. These pure lead plates are made thinner, enabling more to fit in the battery for increased plate surface area. The additional surface area enables TPPL batteries to generate more power as well as provide longer service life, greater reliability and deep-cycle capabilities.
ODYSSEY® batteries feature a three- to 10-year service life and two-year storage life at 77°F (25°C). They are vibration resistant, classified as “non-spillable” by the U.S. Department of Transportation and include a limited three-year full replacement warranty.
