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.

The problem is that high temperatures cause the battery water to evaporate to such as extent that the plates are literally left out to dry. The battery becomes weak and fragile.

Banner’s advice is to have the battery checked every time the vehicle goes to the repair shop.


Regular checks of the electrolyte level in wet batteries and if necessary, top up with demineralized or distilled water to
the maximum acid mark, or 15 mm above the upper plate edge. Never refill with acid!


In the case of high water losses, a specialist should check the governor voltage.

YouTube Channel Banner Batterien
Banner goes YouTube.
The video channel for battery know-how, an effective marketing tool of the future!
Videos are not only informative, but also hip, which is something that market researchers and pioneers already predicted some years ago.

The best evidence of these facts is provided by the steadily growing preference of social media users for moving images. However, in spite of the fact that YouTube is an ideal, corporate marketing tool, companies in Europe often regard it with a degree of reticence.


Content is sometimes not produced specifically for YouTube, but nonetheless owing to the information provided can generate surprisingly high call-up figures on the large, global video platforms. With over a billion active and regular users monthly, YouTube accounts for a third of all Internet users worldwide.  Every day, YouTube presents videos that add up to several hundred million hours of images and generate billions of call-ups. In particular, the young target group (14-34 years) is increasingly represented on YouTube and watches traditional television to an ever-diminishing extent. Put in a nutshell, there is no way to avoid YouTube.      


Banner has now launched its own YouTube channel with the videos currently at its disposal. In addition, informative “how-to videos” are in preparation, e.g.


- How do I provide correct start assistance?
- What must I note when recharging a battery?
- How do I put my newly purchased motorcycle battery into operation?
- ... etc.


Our aim is to share our professional battery know-how with you as a user. This will take the form of important topics such as battery maintenance, charging, storage, exchange and installation,...

Charging inside the vehicle.
– Before charging, check the electrolyte level and top up if necessary with
deionized or distilled water to the maximum acid level mark or to 15 mm above the upper edge of the plates.

– Batteries must only be charged with direct current. Connect the positive (+) battery terminal to the positive (+) terminal of the charger, and the negative (-) battery terminal to the negative (-) terminal of the charger.
– Do not switch on the charger until after the battery has been connected. When charging is finished, switch off the charger before disconnecting the battery.
– It is recommended that the charging current be equal to one tenth of the capacity. (e.g. 44 Ah divided by 10 = 4.4 A charging current)
– The temperature of the acid must not exceed 55 °C during charging. If the temperature rises above 55 °C, the charging process must be discontinued.
– Charging is finished if the current drops to 0 or stops falling, or if the automatic charger switches off.
– Charging must be performed in a well-ventilated room.

Caution: Detonating gas is formed during charging! Fires, sparks, open flames and smoking are strictly prohibited!


Running Bull AGM/BackUp: Only recharge with a voltage controlled Banner Accucharger (max. 14,8V)! The use of standard, non-voltage controlled chargers will destroy the battery through overloading and cause the electrolyte to escape!

Garden Bull
Professional power for garden lawns.
Springtime and the gardening season are approaching and Banner has
already prepared the ground in timely fashion by enlarging its product portfolio with the new Garden Bull battery line. This has been specially designed for garden equipment such as tractor and ride-on mowers, and was launched onto the market during February.
Banner, which is based in Leonding, Upper Austria, has for many years been successfully manufacturing starter batteries for the sport and leisure segment, which are installed in motorcycles, quads, jet skis,
ATVs, scooters and snowmobiles. Now, Banner is additionally covering the gardening equipment market with its new, top quality Garden Bull batteries, which were specifically designed for this purpose. These are equipped with the latest lead battery technology and not only offer maximum user-friendliness and operational safety, but also outstandingly low self-discharge rates and high levels of cold start power. Furthermore, the Garden Bulls provide excellent performance and reliability in combination with a long
service life.

As Andreas Bawart, Banner’s Commercial CEO states: “We are proud of the fact that with this addition to our portfolio we can attain market coverage of around 90 per cent. This has been achieved through the offer of six different battery versions for the garden mower segment.” These six models have capacities ranging from 18 to 30Ah and as Andreas Bawart adds: “ One of our key focal points during the creation of the Banner Garden Bull was on the type of terminal generally used for ride-on mowers. This was naturally taken into account and the design matched accordingly.”

The quality Garden Bull is dry pre-charged and is supplied with a pack containing a precisely measured quantity of electrolyte. Once this is filled into the battery, it is immediately ready for use. The Banner Garden Bull is a maintenance-free wet battery, which when installed vertically offers safety against tipping and leakages. Owing to its first class design, it also offers up to thirty per cent more starting energy than standard batteries and if charged up in winter will remain reliable and powerful, not just for a season but
many years. For this purpose, Banner recommends the use of a suitable Banner Accucharger device.

E-mobility is an opportunity for Bull power.
E-mobility is an important business area for Banner and deliveries are already being made to numerous partners.
E-mobility has for quite some time been the dominant topic of discussion in the automotive branch. Consequently, as an established manufacturer of lead-based starter batteries, Banner is confronting the resultant challenges to a greater extent than ever before.
With its AGM and EFB batteries, Banner is making a significant contribution to sustainable emobility.
It is still impossible for any e-vehicle to operate without a 12V lead-acid battery on board for the supply of its electrical systems and therefore apart from future-oriented start-ups, Banner is also supplying leading automotive manufacturers such as the BMW Group with its quality batteries. For example, the electrical system in the BMW i3 is stabilised by a Banner Running Bull AGM Backup, which feeds power to the car’s 12V consumers.

The German Post Office also delivers with Banner.
For more than a year, Deutsche Post (Germany Post Office) has been using DHL e-transporters for short delivery runs. In the so-called StreetScooters, which are the product of an innovative start-up, the battery is installed behind the driver’s cab and must therefore be maintenance-free. At present, Banner is supplying the required power with a Starting Bull and an 8A charger has also been installed in order to allow the simultaneous recharging of the 12V and high-voltage batteries over night.

Lead-acid batteries supply flexible energy.
Future-oriented, fuel-saving vehicles require a reliable energy source. Therefore, owing to their high levels of cyclical resistance, in particular advanced lead-acid batteries in the form of absorbent glass mat (AGM) and enhanced flooded batteries (EFB) are employed in micro-hybrid concepts. Above all, the AGM battery, which uses glass webs, is an extremely efficient battery technology that allows the flexible and extensive energy management that is vital for the vehicle technologies of tomorrow.

An emphasis on research and development
The automotive industry sees lithium-ion technology as possessing the greatest future potential for full hybrid vehicles. And although Banner is regarded as one of the leading suppliers of AGM and EFB batteries for micro-hybrid vehicles with start-stop systems, as an innovative company it is careful not to rest on its laurels. For as Andreas Bawart, the Banner Commercial CEO, explains: “A number of development projects are in progress, which are aimed at further boosting the efficiency of the AGM
battery. We have set ourselves the target of improving power charging and discharge through optimised cell design, additives in the active mass and various design measures.”
