EnerSys® to Showcase ODYSSEY® and NorthStar® Battery Portfolios for Vocational and Commercial Trucks at the 2020 NTEA Work Truck Show®

READING, Pennsylvania, March 3, 2020 – EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, along with recently-acquired NorthStar Battery Company, will highlight the latest ODYSSEY® battery and charger product offerings for vocational and commercial truck applications in booth no.

5393 at the 2020 NTEA Work Truck Show®. This year’s event will be held March 3 to 6 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Since the acquisition of NorthStar Battery Company in September 2019, EnerSys® has strengthened its operations and production of Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technologies including its portfolio of ODYSSEY® batteries, engineered to provide premium and long-lasting power for heavy duty commercial trucks. The company’s NTEA Work Truck Show exhibit will feature ODYSSEY® Extreme Series™, ODYSSEY® Performance Series™ and NorthStar® PRO Series Group 31 batteries, uniquely designed to handle the increased use of on-board accessories in today’s high-end vehicles. They provide deep cycle reserve power and maximum cranking power, with engine cranking pulses up to 2,700 amps for 5 seconds, which is double that of equally sized conventional flooded lead acid batteries.

“EnerSys provides a portfolio of user-friendly, high-performance and virtually maintenance-free power solutions engineered to get the job done no matter the application or work environment,” said Jeremy Cordray, Director of Transportation Sales at EnerSys. “Featuring industry-leading cranking, reserve capacity and battery life, ODYSSEY® and NorthStar® batteries are the ideal power solutions that will lead fleet managers down the path to a lower total cost of ownership.”

EnerSys will also highlight its range of ODYSSEY® battery shop chargers. The 12-volt shop chargers are rated at 35, 70 and 105 amps, and offer charging solutions that can be transported around the shop or wall mounted for permanent operation. The 70- and 105-amp units use a 4.3-inch multi-color dashboard screen with an easy-to-use, programmable menu that displays charging status.

ODYSSEY® and NorthStar® batteries feature a three- to 10-year service life and a two-year storage life at 77°F (25°C). They are vibration and shock resistant, classified as “non-spillable” by the U.S. Department of Transportation and include a limited three-year full replacement warranty.
