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.
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)
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.
