Battery tip: Cheap can be expensive!
When it comes to choosing a car battery, you should focus on quality.
Nowadays, starter batteries are particularly challenged by the use of start-stop systems, additional equipment and climatic conditions. Cheap batteries are often the more expensive solution!

The requirements for starter batteries are strongly dependent on the climatic conditions and the additional electrical/electronic equipment. Today, most new vehicles are also equipped with a start-stop system that switches off the engine when the vehicle is stopped in order to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Conventional starter batteries can no longer fulfil this challenging task, which is why the use of special start-stop batteries with AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) or EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery) technology is required.

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

 

There is a good reason why Banner quality batteries have established themselves worldwide!

They combine the highest starting power, further increased cold start characteristics, optimised current consumption capacity and thus improved chargeability as well as a long service life.

 

Banner Tip: Use the next largest battery for your car, for which there is usually enough space. Because these are additional power reserves for your vehicle! The price difference is usually extremely small and the alternator of your vehicle is designed for it!

 

In our online battery search you will find information about upgrading options for your vehicle.
