EnerSys, the world’s largest manufacturer, marketer and distributor of industrial batteries, now offers an updated application manual for its Odyssey line of high-performance batteries. In addition to the information provided in the past, the new manual includes updated test data, detailed performance data on four new batteries and expanded notes on how to properly charge and store Odyssey batteries.
The many benefits of using Odyssey batteries are outlined in the manual. Some of these benefits include a long service life of three to 10 years, an eight- to 12-year design life, the ability to recover from deep discharges, and the batteries’ five-second cranking power, which is double or sometimes triple that of competing batteries. The manual provides a specification chart and performance data tables as well as information on the batteries’ pulse discharge capabilities, extended discharge characteristics and low temperature performance – they can operate in temperatures as low as -40°F.
