Superior Car Batteries at the Cheapest Prices
There is nothing worse than turning the key and hearing that ticking noise of a dead battery. There are many factors that can cause a flat battery, one of the most common causes of a flat battery is a poorly suited battery for your vehicle’s power requirements. Don’t make the same mistake twice, for reliable car batteries that are the right fit for whatever you’re driving, you need to trust the advice of the experts.
Why your Car Batteries Might be Failing you
The way car batteries work is that they send an electrical burst of energy through your vehicle’s starter which will then crank the engine into motion. It is important to remember, however, that a battery only has so much power, and with the high accessory loads we place on our cars and trucks nowadays, including air conditioning, satellite navigation, winches and communications equipment, different size batteries are needed to meet the demands. Many people fear this will cost them more, but we offer you the best product for the cheapest prices
Common questions about Battery
We test and if necessary undertake a battery replacement and have you back on the road, usually within the hour.
Yes. Our Batteries are produced to exacting standards. As a result, our Battery products carry a nationwide warranty up to 3 years for a vehicle that is used for private purposes.
How long a battery lasts depends on:
- proper installation;
- the climate in which the car operates;
- how regularly the car is driven.
CCA stands for Cold Cranking Amps and is the recognised industry standard for rating a battery’s cranking performance. The number of plates was once used as the measure for rating batteries, however CCA is now the industry standard.
The Amp Hour (Ah) rating is a way of describing a battery’s capacity. It describes the capacity of a battery based on a discharge period of 20 hours.
AGM stands for Absorbent Glass Mat. This type of battery uses a non-woven glass mat to separate the plates. The glass mat absorbs and retains sufficient electrolyte for the battery to operate, meaning that there is no free electrolyte in the cell to spill. These batteries are also known as Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) batteries as each cell has a one-way valve to manage cell pressure.
Enhanced Flooded Batteries (EFB) are being fitted to many vehicles fitted with Idle Stop Start (ISS) technology. These ‘flooded’ batteries are an enhanced version of the standard calcium battery, and are designed to withstand the increased cranking and cycling demanded by vehicles fitted with ISS technology.
Idle Stop Start (ISS) technology, also known as Stop Start, is designed to help reduce vehicle fuel consumption and emissions. The vehicle’s engine automatically shuts down when the vehicle is stationary instead of idling, and will restart when you need to move again. ISS equipped vehicles are fitted with EFB and AGM batteries which are designed to cope with the additional electrical loads and repeated cranking required from this technology.
Don’t worry! If it turns out that you don’t need a battery replacement, you won’t be charged for one. Non-members will however incur a $30 fee for the battery test.
