QuickChat: How the right battery can impact a trucking fleet

July 7, 2023
Kevin Jones of FleetOwner and Stacey Delzeit of Odyssey Battery / Enersys sit down to discuss idling laws, deep discharging impacts on battery life, and how Odyssey batteries help in fleet applications.

Fleet managers and owners have to follow no idling laws these days.  This means that drivers must shut off their engines and rely on power from the batteries for all their hotel and auxiliary loads.  In this situation, the batteries can be deeply discharged which significantly shortens the life of traditional truck batteries.  This results in higher costs for the fleet due to battery replacements as well as increased downtime and jump starts. 

In this QuickChat with Stacey Delzeit, Transportation Technical Solutions Manager at Odyssey Battery / Enersys, learn about the applications of idling laws in Class 8 trucks, why deep discharging reduces battery life, and how Odyssey batteries present a solution to these challenges that fleet operations face.
