EnerSys recently introduced its ODYSSEY 65-PC1750 battery, which combines deep cycle capability with five-second cranking power. The 65-PC1750 is ideal for automotive and heavy-duty applications.
The battery’s deep cycle capability creates a quick charge characteristic, while the five-second cranking power is double to triple that of conventional batteries. A 12-volt drycell battery, the ODYSSEY 65-PC1750 battery provides simple constant voltage charging with either an alternator or an independent charger. This creates no limitation on the inrush current, resulting in a quick charge.
“The ODYSSEY 65-PC1750 battery offers the benefits of two separate batteries in one box,” said Dana Kowalski, marketing communication supervisor for EnerSys. “The battery offers rugged construction with superior vibration resistance, so it can tolerate exceptional mechanical abuse. It is an excellent battery for heavy-duty and commercial vehicles, such as tractor trailers, construction vehicles and equipment, ambulances, police cars and farm equipment, as well as high-performance cars and sport utility vehicles.”
The new ODYSSEY 65-PC1750 battery features cold cranking amps (CCA) of 930. Additionally, it offers 140 minutes of reserve capacity and a deep cycle capability of 400 cycles at 80 percent depth of discharge (DOD). The battery weighs 60 pounds (27.2 kg) and measures 7.40 inches (188.0mm) in height, 7.20 inches (182.9mm) in width, 11.80 inches (299.7mm) in length. The 65-PC1750 is a direct replacement for BCI Group 65 battery.
Other features of the ODYSSEY 65-PC1750 battery include a six- to 10-year service life, a two-year storage life at 77°F (25°C) and a 12-year design life. It is corrosion, explosion, leak proof and vibration resistant. The ODYSSEY 65-PC1750 battery is covered by a four-year free replacement warranty.
