Today’s modern buses are more demanding, with vehicle and driver systems now requiring higher performance than conventional batteries were designed for. Passengers have ever-increasing expectations of what buses must deliver to make it their preferred choice of transport. ODYSSEY® batteries, with TPPL technology, can help operators meet these needs.
Your number one priority is to run a punctual bus fleet with minimum maintenance requirements and unexpected downtime. ODYSSEY® batteries provide significant starting power at lower states of charge even after unplanned demands on the battery. Thanks to its rugged construction and advanced TPPL plate design, it will deliver twice the overall power and three times the life of conventional bus batteries.
Modern buses must offer passengers enhanced features that encourage them to make repeat journeys. The increased load from technology including WiFi, multi-media devices and USB charging are easily met by ODYSSEY® batteries, with capacity to meet future advances as they are introduced to the market.
Conventional batteries struggle with the requirements of start-stop technology. The potential fuel benefits can be displaced by increased battery maintenance costs. Our The 99.99% pure lead plates in every ODYSSEY® Battery are more reliable than conventional automotive batteries, allowing more discharge cycles to much higher levels of depth of discharge – making them ideally suited to the demands of modern buses that require frequent starting power and extra electrical load capacity.
Allowing you to plan for your future fleet requirements, ODYSSEY® batteries can be stored without recharging for up to 24 months or down to 12.6V, whichever occurs first.
The ODYSSEY® Battery is renowned for its extensive use in luxury performance cars and is trusted by top racing teams. Already tested, and used, in the military and heavy-duty vehicle markets, this technology is now available in standard 629-DIN B and 625-DIN C footprints for buses.
