Banner at the Automechanika 2018
Staying in the fast lane with sustainable battery systems
As a key element in future mobility, innovative battery technologies are the object of increasing attention.
Therefore, Banner is working continuously on the development of optimum battery systems, which meets the demands of tomorrow. Consequently, the starter battery specialist’s very latest product advances in the commercial vehicle, car and accessories areas will form the centrepiece of its exhibit at the Automechanika 2018.

Günter Helmchen, the CEO of Banner Batterien Deutschland GmbH, sees the premium supplier’s presentation at this year’s Automechanika as demonstrating that: “With the enhanced flooded battery (EFB) and absorbent glass mat (AGM) technologies for micro-hybrid drives and start-stop applications, we provide clear evidence of our sense of responsibility with regard to a resource-protective and sustainable business approach. During the past financial year alone, with our start-stop batteries we contributed to fuel savings of around 66 million litres and a reduction in CO2 emissions of approximately 164,000t. In addition, our new battery management systems for cars and commercial vehicles represent a systematic continuation of our successful strategy for the sustainable mobility of the future. In this connection, environmental protection and the common good constitute the number one priority, which is also linked to the fact that today lead-acid batteries can be recycled to an unsurpassed degree of virtually 100 per cent.”

Aktivwoche von MMC OÖ
Anfang Juli haben wir die Aktivwoche von MMC OÖ, der Selbsthilfegruppe für Kinder und junge Erwachsene mit Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus, unterstützt.

Im Zuge der Aktivwoche konnten 18 Kinder im Rollstuhl, mitsamt Geschwister, intensiv traineren, neue Erfahrungen machen und an ihre Grenzen gehen.
Die Aktivitäten reichten von Rollstuhl-Tennis, Tischtennis mit Olympiasieger Andreas Vevera bis hin zu einem Besuch bei SK Rapid Wien, um hinter die Kulissen zu blicken. Auch eine Ausfahrt mit den Autos vom Morgan Sports Car Club stand am Plan.
In den täglichen Trainingseinheiten der Aktivwoche wurden die Fähigkeiten der Kinder verbessert und durch die unterschiedlichsten Sportarten ausprobiert.

Banner Batterietipps
Battery-tip: Heat causes car batteries to sweat!
“Summertime blues” for batteries.
Those needing a new battery in winter have generally made a mistake in summer.

High air temperatures cause the water in a conventional wet battery to evaporate to such an extent that the battery plates are literally dry. The battery becomes weak and fragile.

Banner professional tip:

Make a battery check, on every vehicle, in the workshop run!


Control for longer life.
A battery supplies energy permanently when its optimum state is maintained. With the banner test and inspection devices you can test charge conditions, voltage, the status of the battery acid and much more. This way you know immediately if and which measures are necessary to maintain full battery power.


Regularly check the electrolyte level in wet batteries and, if necessary, top up demineralised or distilled water to the maximum acid level or 15 mm above the upper edge of the plate.

There is no need to top up water on Banner's absolutely maintenance-free wet starter batteries (applies to Starting Bull, Power Bull/PRO and Running Bull EFB). Under normal operating conditions, no water needs to be refilled for the entire battery life of the Bull product variants mentioned above.

In case of high water loss, the controller voltage should be checked by a specialist. Never top up acid!


Please note with Running Bull AGM batteries:

The screw connections of the AGM batteries must not be opened! An acid density measurement or refilling of distilled water is not possible or not necessary!


Battery check with banner testing devices - important routine control for optimal performance and longer life of every car battery.
