EnerSys® Introduces Latest ODYSSEY® Battery Model for Automotive Auxiliary Power
READING, Pennsylvania, November 1, 2023 – EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, now offers customers the first-ever Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) power solution for automotive auxiliary applications – the ODYSSEY® ODS-AGM14 battery.
“This is a market where customer demand is high but dependable options are scarce,” said Dave McMullen, Senior Director of Global Marketing, Transportation & Specialty at EnerSys. “We are proud to be the world’s first manufacturer to offer a battery solution with proprietary technology that meets the needs of a variety of automotive auxiliary applications.”
ODYSSEY® ODS-AGM14 batteries are engineered to provide long-lasting power for automotive auxiliary applications that are compatible with several popular vehicle manufacturers including BMW®, Mercedes-Benz® and Dodge®/Chrysler/Jeep. As a result of the battery’s TPPL design, these cars can run anything from lighting and navigation to the latest state-of-the-art stereo systems without running the vehicle’s motor. The ODYSSEY® ODS-AGM14 battery also features a vent port that’s designed to seamlessly fit factory specifications for the vehicle’s existing vent system.
ODYSSEY® batteries provide ample deep cycling reserve power, with engine cranking pulses up to 3,125 amps for five seconds, which is double that of equally sized conventional lead acid batteries. The battery’s AGM construction helps pack the plates tightly in absorbent fiberglass separators that hold the electrolyte and makes the battery maintenance-free. Backed by an industry-leading warranty, ODYSSEY® batteries feature a two-year storage life at 77°F (25°C) and are available in a wide variety of sizes with Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) as high as 2,250.
