EnerSys has upgraded its ODYSSEY Performance Series Group 31 battery from 800 cold cranking amps (CCA) to 925 CCA. The introduction of the ODYSSEY 31-925 battery is a direct result of increased market demand for greater performance.

The ODYSSEY 31-925 battery is designed to handle the increased use of onboard accessories in today’s commercial trucks and tractor trailers. Manufactured with Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, the ODYSSEY 31-925 battery provides engine-cranking pulses up to 1,750 amps and 925 CCA, and can also handle 400 charge-discharge cycles at 80 percent depth of discharge. Additionally, dry cell Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) separators hold acid in place to prevent spills, even when the battery is installed on its side.

The ODYSSEY 31-925 battery measures 13.0” L x 6.78” W x 9.42” H and weighs 69 pounds. It is available with 3/8-16” stud or SAE posts.

TPPL technology is applied to the manufacturing of flat plates made of 99.99% 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.

ODYSSEY Performance Series batteries feature a three- to 10-year service life and two-year storage life at 77 degrees Fahrenheit. They are vibration resistant, classified as “non-spillable” by the U.S. Department of Transportation, and include a limited three-year full replacement warranty.
