EnerSys® to Highlight ODYSSEY® Battery Product Offering at 2019 Custom Automotive Network Connect Event

READING, Pennsylvania, August 20, 2019 – EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, will be a featured exhibitor at the Custom Automotive Network (CAN) Connect event highlighting the complete ODYSSEY® battery product offering. The CAN Connect event will take place September 8-11 at the Embassy Suites, Frisco, Texas.

ODYSSEY® 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. TPPL technology is applied to the manufacturing of flat plates made of 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.

“The CAN Connect event is a perfect opportunity to showcase the full-line of ODYSSEY® batteries and chargers to some of the country’s top resellers in one location,” said Alan Kohler, marketing manager, Transportation and Specialty at EnerSys. “We’re looking forward to highlighting the superior performance characteristics of ODYSSEY batteries and how they are built to meet the power demands of today’s vehicles.”

ODYSSEY® Extreme Series™ batteries can provide engine-cranking pulses up to 2,250 amps and can handle 400 charge-discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge. Select models are available with a metal casing for high heat applications. ODYSSEY® Performance Series™ batteries can provide engine-cranking pulses up to 2,700 amps and can handle 400 charge-discharge cycles up to 80% depth of discharge. The complete line also provides fitments for many of today’s vehicles.

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 two- to four-year full replacement warranty.
