HOW-TO VIDEO

Charging the car battery

 

Charging of conventional wet batteries and EFB batteries:

 

- Before charging, check electrolyte level and, if necessary, fill up desalinated or distilled water to the max. acid residue mark or 15 mm above the upper edge of the plate. The screw connections of the battery must not remain open during charging, it is best to close them again.

AGM batteries must not be opened, refilling with water is not possible or necessary.

 

- Connect the positive pole of the battery to the positive pole of the charger and the negative pole to the negative pole of the charger. Only switch on the charger after connecting the battery. Switch off the charger when charging is complete.


- A tenth of the capacity is recommended as charging current. (e.g. 44 Ah: 10 = 4.4 A charging current). With an automatic charger like the Banner Accucharger this setting happens, as the name suggests, automatically.


- Charging is complete when the current drops to 0 or no longer decreases or the automatic charger switches off. Provide good ventilation during charging. Attention: Highly explosive oxyhydrogen gas forms during charging! Fire, sparks, open light and smoking prohibited!

 

- AGM batteries must be charged with a voltage regulated charger, e.g. Banner Accucharger (max. 14.8V)!


As a general rule, fully automatic chargers (charging voltage limitation with 14.8V) are well suited for charging the battery installed in the vehicle. If your charger has an automatic mode with voltages >15.9V, the battery must be disconnected from the on-board electronics or removed from the vehicle. In the worst case the installed control units could be destroyed by overvoltages, the resulting damage would be enormous!

Giving a jump start - that´s how it works!
Battery tip: Giving a jump start!
You can always rely on a well-maintained Banner battery, but what happens when a neighbour has starting problems? You naturally want to help and provide quick and simple assistance.
That´s how you do it right!

However, one thing should be noted from the outset. Namely, that in view of the sensitive electronic components in the vehicle, as a rule starting assistance should only be given by means of a Banner Booster. This is because start assistance from vehicle to vehicle can lead to voltage peaks during the disconnection of the terminals, which can damage or even destroy car electronic systems.

 

Therefore, it is essential that the following procedure be strictly observed when using starter cables!
– Standardised starter cables (e.g. in accordance with DIN 72 553) should always be used when giving starting assistance.
– Observe the instructions for the use of the starter cables.
– Only connect batteries with the same nominal voltage.
– When connecting the terminals, switch off both vehicle engines!
– First connect the two positive terminals (1) with (2). Then connect the negative terminal of the assisting vehicle (3) with (4), the blank metallic point on the vehicle requiring assistance, away from the battery. (Observe the instructions of the vehicle manufacturer.)
– Now start the vehicle needing assistance for a maximum of 15 seconds. Do not start the assisting vehicle.
– When disconnecting the terminals, remove the cables in the reverse sequence to the above.

 

Attention: The car battery is not always installed in the engine compartment, but can also be located in the interior/passenger compartment or luggage compartment. The procedure of the jump start remains unchanged!

 

What can one do when everything is dead? Banner Boosters supply mobile power at any time and anywhere.

Banner on the podium!
Banner on the podium at the "King Customer" Award 2018!
Banner was able to convince in the "König Kunde" survey of the trade magazine Reisemobil International.

Every year, Reisemobil International, the trade magazine for motorhomes and motorhomes, conducts the "King Customer" survey. The survey asks how satisfied readers are with caravans and accessories. Reisemobil International calls the study "King Customer" because it is ultimately the customers who determine which brands are on the winners' podium.

 

Banner made it to third place in the accessories category "on-board battery".

REACH Regulation
Information on the REACH Regulation
Our raw material lead has been classified as SVHC substance (Substances of Very High Concern) according to the REACH regulation. We would be pleased to inform you about the details below.

Banner GmbH has been producing high-quality, lead-acid starter batteries in Austria since 1937. Our products are subject to a closed life cycle, whereby almost all raw materials, including lead and polypropylene for example, are recycled. As such, the responsible and environmentally friendly use of lead and lead oxide is integral to our work.

 

By law, we are required to once again make you aware that we use lead in our batteries. This is as a result of EC regulation no. 1907/2006 (REACH, article 59 1 10) and the revision of the Candidate List from which substances, that are of particularly high concern, are selected for authorisation (Version 28.08.2018; see https://echa.europa.eu/de/candidate-list-table).
