EnerSys® has expanded its ODYSSEY® Performance Series™ battery product line to include a Group 34 battery and Group 78 battery, designed specifically for consumer passenger and commercial vans, custom and classic cars and SUVs. The ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 battery and the ODYSSEY Performance Series 78-790 battery both feature 792 cold cranking amps (CCA) and 114 reserve capacity (RC) minutes. They also feature deep cycle capability up to 400 cycles at 80 percent depth of discharge.
While ODYSSEY Performance Series batteries do not have as many CCA and RC minutes as ODYSSEY Extreme Series batteries, they feature the same rugged construction and offer equivalent deep cycling capabilities, long service life and high reliability. They also deliver more deep cycle capabilities for parasitic load.
“We are pleased to introduce the ODYSSE® Performance Series 34-790 and 78-790 batteries to offer a wider selection of ODYSSEY Performance Series batteries to customers,” said Dave McMullen, director of commercial marketing for specialty and UPS markets at EnerSys. “The ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 and 78-790 batteries are an ideal choice for consumers as they combine long service life, high reliability and deep cycle capabilities so that vehicles can run stronger and for a longer service life than conventional batteries.”
ODYSSEY Performance Series batteries offer a three- to 10-year service life and two-year storage life at 77 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees Celsius). They are vibration resistant, classified as “non-spillable” by the U.S. Department of Transportation and include a four-year full replacement warranty. The ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 and ODYSSEY Performance Series™ 78-790 battery correspond to Battery Council International (BCI) Group 34 and Group 78.
In addition to these new battery models, the ODYSSEY Performance Series Group 65 battery (65-760) will launch in January 2014.
