Anti-idling legislation, diesel pollution standards, and daily driving limits all conspire to force truckers to find new ways to power their sleeper cabs’ “hotel loads” (air-conditioning, lights, TV, etc.). One alternative is to rely on batteries to provide engine-off power to these loads. However, classic “Group 31” sized lead acid batteries, which have historically been bought by trucking industry based on “Cold Cranking” (CCA) and low price, won’t stand up to the repeated daily strain of full discharges and recharges. A more robust battery solution is needed.
Firefly Energy brings the most powerful and longest running BCI Group 31 battery to the trucking industry. By taking advantage of Firefly’s unique Microcell™ Carbon Foam cell architecture, the Oasis™ Group 31 battery is capable of powering “engine-off” overnight loads without the fuel consumption, pollution, and maintenance issues associated with heavier diesel auxiliary power units. The Oasis battery offers the highest continuous reserve capacity, and the fastest recharge capability of any battery available to the over the road trucker today. In addition to power, Oasis will last three times longer than current Group 31 batteries. The carbon foam powered Oasis battery, based on Microcell™ Carbon Foam technology, makes lead-acid batteries obsolete.
- Highest reserve capacity in the market
- Unprecedented cycle life – designed for repeated deep-discharges
- 3 to 5 times longer cycle life than traditional lead-acid
- Lowest cost-of-ownership
- Superior cold weather performance
