Tech tips videos for battery maintenance available

Updated May 25, 2018

EnerSys, global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY batteries, has added three new technical tip videos to its ODYSSEY Battery YouTube channel.

The videos address how to inspect, test and charge ODYSSEY batteries for commercial heavy-duty trucks.

The company says the “How to inspect your ODYSSEY battery” video addresses inspection, cleaning and troubleshooting. It discusses inspecting the hold down for ideal functionality as well as the cleanliness of the cables. Additionally, the video explains how to test the battery’s voltage.

The “Testing an ODYSSEY battery” video addresses proper battery testing and the equipment needed for a successful test. It shows how to use terminal adaptors, a volt meter and a battery tester to obtain the most effective results and confirm your battery is in good working condition, the company says.

Finally, the “How to charge an ODYSSEY battery” video discusses how to properly and quickly charge ODYSSEY batteries. If the proper equipment is used, EnerSys says charging an ODYSSEY battery is typically easier than charging a standard lead calcium battery due to their very low internal resistance. The video shows how to prepare an ODYSSEY battery for charging, and details how to use a PAC charger, the company says.
