Stop-start batteries

We're the experts on the
latest battery technologies

If you own or are considering a car fitted with stop-start engine technology, it's important to know that your battery plays a big role.

This technology is designed to increase a vehicle's fuel efficiency and reduce its emissions. When the car's not running, it's not using fuel – the engine switches itself off at every standstill. In traffic, the battery may need to start the engine several times in a matter of minutes, all while keeping the vehicle's electronics powered.

All batteries are tested and installed by our trained mobile technicians.

The newest battery technologies

Manufacturers of stop-start and hybrid vehicles rely on the latest battery technologies, such as the absorbent glass mat (AGM) battery and enhanced flooded battery (EFB). We specialise in all these new technologies.

Absorbent glass mat batteries

AGM batteries use glass mats between each plate that absorb the electrolyte. The whole series is then highly compressed to produce a similar chemical reaction to a conventional battery, but less acid. This makes the battery more efficient than a conventional one, and you’ll tend to find these solely in high end European vehicles.

Enhanced flooded batteries

An EFB is an improved version of the lead acid battery that offers a happy medium between the cost effectiveness of conventional batteries, and the efficiency of AGM batteries. They can be assembled on existing battery production lines, and are widely used in stop-start vehicles by Japanese and European car manufacturers.
