GS Batteries aid Start/Stop Technology

The GS Batteries Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) and Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB) ranges are designed to meet the needs of the ever-evolving car parc.

Over the winter months, batteries are prone to failure due to an increased strain in cold temperatures, reducing performance by up to 60%. Coupled with the growing car parc of Start/Stop vehicles coming out of warranty, it is important to be ready for increased sales opportunities.

The GS Batteries AGM and EFB ranges support Start/Stop vehicles and use technology that offers much higher cyclic capability and durability to cope with the demands of repeated cranking cycles.

AGM Batteries

These are used for higher specification vehicles. 6 part numbers are in range, designed to fulfil the requirements of vehicles that contain:

  • Idle Start/Stop (ISS)
  • Charge management (alternator control) and regenerative braking
  • Passive boost (Battery powered starter/generator boosted engine, allowing engine downsizing with no reduction in performance)

EFB Batteries

These are used for lower specification vehicles. 13 part numbers in range provide the following benefits:

  • Improved specification and performance even when it is based on a conventional flooded lead acid battery design
  • Cost effective solution for low spec entry-level vehicles, where the battery is not operating across such a low range of State of Charge (SOC) as an AGM battery

All AGM and EFB batteries are available from FPS same-day; please contact your local FPS representative for more information.
