EnerSys has expanded its ODYSSEY Performance Series battery product line to include a Group 34 battery and Group 78 battery, designed specifically for consumer passenger and commercial vans, custom and classic cars and SUVs. The ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 battery and the ODYSSEY Performance Series 78-790 battery both feature 792 cold cranking amps (CCA) and 114 reserve capacity (RC) minutes. They also feature deep cycle capability up to 400 cycles at 80 percent depth of discharge, the company says.

While ODYSSEY Performance Series batteries do not have as many CCA and RC minutes as ODYSSEY Extreme Series batteries, they feature the same rugged construction and offer equivalent deep cycling capabilities, long service life and high reliability, according to Enersys. They also deliver more deep cycle capabilities for parasitic loads.

“We are pleased to introduce the ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 and 78-790 batteries to offer a wider selection of ODYSSEY Performance Series batteries to customers,” said Dave McMullen, director of commercial marketing for specialty and UPS markets at EnerSys. “The ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 and 78-790 batteries are an ideal choice for consumers as they combine long service life, high reliability and deep cycle capabilities so that vehicles can run stronger and for a longer service life than conventional batteries.”

ODYSSEY Performance Series batteries offer 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 four-year full replacement warranty. The ODYSSEY Performance Series 34-790 and ODYSSEY Performance Series 78-790 battery correspond to Battery Council International (BCI) Group 34 and Group 78.

In addition to these new battery models, the ODYSSEY Performance Series Group 65 battery (65-760) will launch in January 2014.

With the complexity of today’s modern vehicles, as technicians, we are going to have to stay on top of our game.

Over the last 28 years of being a technician, I have developed the habit of checking for and reading technical service bulletins at the forefront of the diagnostic process, especially when an unfamiliar vehicle exhibiting blatant or straightforward concerns comes into the shop. I have found many valuable nuggets of information while reading over these bulletins, from wiring concerns and connector issues, to transfer noises, water leaks, and engine and transmission performance concerns. The knowledge gained in reading through these bulletins has not only helped me with the vehicles I’m working on, but also increased my perspective and ability to connect the dots on other vehicles that don’t pertain to a current bulletin.
