The High Performance battery ranges provide higher cranking or CCA (cold cranking amps) than standard batteries for the same physical size. These are usually lead-acid batteries and but more costly alternatives can be of AGM (absorbed glass mat) construction. These usually have good CCA and good reserve capacities suited well to large cranking engines like diesels and other large commercial vehicles.
Our brands of Odyssey and Full River are also AGM and designed with very high PCA (Pulse Crank Amps) to give high crank currents for a 5 sec period, form even smaller box sizes. This saves space and weight, making them suitable performance vehicles including race cars, boats, and other power sport vehicles. Their RC (reserve capacities) may be small due to the physically size of the batteries and consideration should be taken to match the application.
