Nowadays, starter batteries are under even more strain due to the use of start-stop systems, additional consumers and extreme climatic conditions. Cheap batteries often turn out to be the more expensive solution.

Why purchase a high-quality battery?

The requirements for starter batteries are strongly dependent on the climatic conditions and the additional electrical or electronic equipment.

Cheap batteries therefore often turn out to be the more expensive solution, as they can lead to starting problems in summer and winter.

Today, most new vehicles are also equipped with a start-stop system that shuts down the engine when the vehicle is stationary in order to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

In this way, the battery in a start-stop vehicle is responsible for much more than just starting up the engine. It must supply the electrical consumers with energy when the vehicle is stationary or when the engine is not running and still ensure the full power supply of the electrical system, including the next start up process.

Conventional starter batteries can no longer fulfil this challenging task, which is why special start-stop batteries with AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) or EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery) technology are required.


There’s a reason why Banner quality­batteries have established themselves across the globe.

They combine the highest starting power, increased cold start characteristics, optimised current absorption capacity and, in this way, improve the battery’s charging ability as well as giving it a long service life.



Banner tip:

Use the next largest battery for your car; there is usually enough space for this. Since these have additional power reserves for your vehicle. The difference in price is usually extremely small and your vehicle alternator is designed for it.
