Batteries

We have a huge variety of batteries that will cater for cars, vans and other vehicles.

We stock two main brands of vehicle batteries PowerBatt and Duracell, both of which will cover all primary vehicles.

PowerBatt have been supplying Original Equipment (O.E.) quality batteries to the automotive aftermarket industries. All of these batteries are supplied with a 3 year warranty from the time of purchase.

Duracell are a well know manufacturer of household batteries, and apply their same technology and knowledge to their automotive batteries. These are supplied with 3 to 5 years warranty depending on which particular battery is supplied.

If you ever have to charge your battery at home, please be sure not to overcharge it. This can cause the battery to overheat which in turn will start to evaporate the electrolyte inside. You may will notice if this happens when you carry out your general vehicle checks. as you might see either very low acid levels or a form of corrosion around the top of the battery.  Neither of these are by the manufacturers design and should be investigated as soon as possible.

If this ever occurs, please come to us where we can advise you as to whether the battery is safe or requires attention 

Every time a car battery goes through a charge and discharge cycle a small amount of active mass is lost from the plates. This process will eventually cause the battery to lose capacity and will reach the point where the battery is not able to start the vehicle. 

JUMP STARTING

Starting assistance from vehicle to vehicle can lead to voltage peaks during disconnection, which can damage or even destroy vehicle electronic systems.

It is essential that the following procedure be strictly observed when using starter cables!

Standardised starter cables (e.g. in accordance with DIN 72 553) should always be used for giving starting assistance.

Observe the instructions for use of the starter cables.

Only connect batteries with the same nominal voltage.

When connecting the terminals, both vehicle engines must be switched off!

First connect the two positive terminals 1 with 2. Then connect the negative terminal of the assisting vehicle 3 with 4, the blank metallic point on the vehicle needing assistance, away from the battery. (Observe the instructions of the vehicle manufacturer.)

Now start the vehicle needing assistance for a maximum of 15 seconds. Do not start the assisting vehicle.

When disconnecting the terminals, remove the cables in the reverse sequence to the above.
