EnerSys Expands ODYSSEY Battery Portfolio to Include Former NorthStar Battery Product Line

EnerSys®, a leader in stored energy solutions and manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, expanded its ODYSSEY battery brand portfolio. The expansion now includes products formerly sold under the NorthStar® battery brand. As a result of the expansion, EnerSys will sell all NorthStar batteries for transportation applications under the ODYSSEY battery brand.

The expanded portfolio includes ODYSSEY Performance batteries, designed to handle the increased use of on-board accessories in today’s vehicles; ODYSSEY Extreme batteries, a true dual-purpose solution that offers enormous cranking and deep cycle reserve power; and ODYSSEY PRO batteries, engineered with an advanced carbon additive for more reserve capacity and longer cycle life. Additionally, the entire line of virtually maintenance-free batteries, featuring proprietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, provide trustworthy performance and long-lasting power for a variety of vehicle applications including automotive/truck, powersports, marine, recreational vehicles (RVs), heavy duty and fleet vehicles.

“With over 25 years of production, ODYSSEY batteries have grown to become a household name; one that customers have come to rely on to provide resilient and unmatched power for all their transportation needs,” says Dave McMullen, senior director of marketing, transportation and specialty at EnerSys. “In an effort to continuously enhance the customer experience, our expanded line will combine the qualities of NorthStar batteries with the tried-and-true performance of our ODYSSEY battery brand to provide more options that meet the unique power demands of today’s vehicles.”


ODYSSEY batteries provide reserve power as well as maximum cranking power with cranking pulses to 3,125 amps for five seconds. That is double that of equally sized conventional lead acid batteries.  Further, the rugged, Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction and non-spillable design of ODYSSEY batteries protect against high-impact shock and mechanical vibration. Backed by a warranty, they feature a three- to 10-year service life and two-year storage life at 77 degrees F. They are available in a wide variety of sizes with Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) as high as 2,250.
