CAT Award Winner 2019!
Banner awarded as "Supplier of the Year"!
CAT (Car and Accessory Trader) magazine published the results of the reader survey in issue 03/2019 and awarded Banner as "Supplier of the Year"!

Around 16,000 CAT Magazine readers gave their personal ratings. Banner scored particularly well with the high quality of advice, products, services and after-sales, including the return of used batteries and environmentally friendly recycling through a closed product cycle.

Furthermore, Banner was able to convince with a professional training program for all sales partners and a battery accessory program optimally tailored to the automotive sector (chargers, boosters, test and inspection equipment through to interesting low-cost battery service articles).

This result is further proof that the Banner brand is highly regarded in the B2B sector - not only in the UK.


Banner thanks CAT magazine readers and editorial staff for the great trust they have shown in us and for giving us this prestigious, renowned award!

Battery tip: Application and function of the battery sensor.
What is the function of the sensor at the negative terminal of the starter battery?
The electronic battery sensor is an important part of energy management in motor vehicles. The sensor gives the car precise information about the battery status and controls the charging voltage and charging current accordingly.

The massively increased on-board currents in modern vehicle models and in particular the microhybrid applications start/stop and recuperation (=recovery) of braking energy place new demands on car batteries. More and more often, kinetic energy is also converted into electrical energy during coasting (=free rolling of the car), thus charging the battery.


Application and function of the sensor. Energy management continuously records parameters such as voltage, current and temperature via the battery sensor. These measured values are used to calculate important parameters such as charge status, functional status, overall battery status and a large number of other values.


The data is transmitted to the vehicle computer. The computer then decides on the energy balance in the vehicle and, if necessary, restricts the use of comfort consumers such as seat heating or air conditioning, deactivates the start/stop function and signals this to the driver on the display with corresponding instructions. If the alternator then recharges sufficiently, the control unit automatically reactivates all consumers and functions.


The customer benefit briefly noted. The primary aim is to ensure that the engine always starts and thus avoid vehicle failure. In addition, the sensor supports intelligent alternator control, which reduces CO2 emissions, saves fuel and protects the environment. If the battery no longer delivers the desired performance, "defective battery" is stored in the system and this early warning makes it possible to plan battery replacement.


Industry abbreviations quickly explained:

BEM - Battery Energy Management =

BMS - Battery Management System =

EEM - Electrical Energy Management =

EMS - Energy Management System


EBS - Electronic Battery Sensor =

IBS - Intelligent Battery Sensor

Make your car battery spring fit!
Battery tip: Get your car battery ready for spring!
Spring is the perfect time to check and recharge the battery.
Give the battery an extra portion of external recharging after winter.

Frequent short journeys, irregular driving profiles in combination with stop-and-go traffic, daily cold starts in icy temperatures in winter as well as additional electrical consumers such as seat, stand or rear window heating have lowered the energy level of your battery start for start and drive for drive. At the latest when changing tyres in spring, you should allow your battery an extra portion of external recharging!


Charge the car battery with the Banner Accucharger.

Banner Accucharger for professional battery charging and conservation. Guarantees a safe start, optimum on-board power supply and extends the service life of each battery (standard, AGM, EFB, start/stop and GEL batteries). Simple, fully automatic, safe and fast. In the video we show you how to charge your car battery correctly: Charging the car battery


Voltage test with the BBT Digital Voltmeter DV1.

The BBT DV1 is a handy measuring instrument that measures the battery voltage quickly and reliably. It is displayed on an easy-to-read LCD display with 2 decimal places. A voltage table on the device provides information about the battery charge status. Very simple application with high accuracy!


Further tips around the Banner battery can be found under the menu item Support.

We wish you a nice spring and a safe drive!
