What's a stop-start battery?
Many modern cars are now fitted with Idle-Stop-Start systems, a technology which saves fuel and reduces pollution by stopping the engine when the vehicle is stopped in traffic. However, cars with stop-start capabilities put a greater demand on the vehicle battery. That's why we stock a range of car batteries specifically designed for stop-start vehicles.
What types of stop-start batteries does NRMA stock?
There are two types of batteries that NRMA stock for stop-start vehicles:
Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) Battery
The AGM battery is maintenance free, fast charging, has a high power output, improved cycle life, excellent deep cycle properties and can continue to deliver high cranking power even with a low state of charge.
Enhanced Flooded (EFB) Battery
The EFB battery is designed to meet entry-level stop-start technology requirements and is an improved version of the standard lead-acid flooded technology found in SLI batteries. With more durability - it makes way for a more consistent flow of power, has deep cycle capabilities, faster recharge and an improved cycle life.
