EnerSys Inc. has upgraded its Odyssey Performance Series Group 31 battery from 800 cold cranking amps (CCA) to 925 CCA.

The company says 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% depth of discharge. Additionally, dry cell absorbed blass mat (AGM) separators hold acid in place to prevent spills, even when the battery is installed on its side.

“The Odyssey 31-925 battery is a powerful and reliable option for today’s commercial trucking and tractor trailer fleets,” says Alan Kohler, transportation and specialty marketing manager at EnerSys.

“With today’s no-idling laws, the Odyssey 31-925 battery helps big rigs keep everything running in the cab when the engine isn’t, and still delivers reliable starting power.”

The Odyssey 31-925 battery measures 13.0-inches long by 6.78 inches wide by 9.42 inches high and weighs 69.0 lbs. It is available with 3/8-16-inch stud or SAE posts.

Odyssey Performance Series batteries feature 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 limited three-year full replacement warranty.
