Banner again achieves record sales revenues and turnover
4.8 million starter batteries sold following the enlargement of the Leonding location
The family-owned Banner company can again look back on a highly successful financial year (1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019), as with sales revenues of EUR 307 million it once more achieved the best result in its history, which dates back well over eighty years.
  • Record sales revenues of EUR 307 million
  • Increase in sales turnover of 200,000 units over the previous year
  • Investments of over EUR 40 million in the Leonding location since 2015
  • Start-stop batteries make a decisive contribution to environment-friendly vehicles

Banner is Austria’s only starter battery manufacturer and produces 4.8 million units annually.

According to Andreas Bawart, Banner’s Commercial CEO: “In the hotly contested battery market, our quality and reliability count for more than ever. A fact confirmed by new record sales revenues of EUR 307 million immediately following the last successful financial year.”

The starter battery specialist continues to have the further development of battery technologies offering greater environment friendliness in focus. For example, Banner’s premium class AGM and EFB start-stop batteries number among the forerunners in this branch segment and as Andreas Bawart stresses: “We are convinced that we can raise the sales of these innovative products still further and with this in view, will continue to adhere to our corporate philosophy of manufacturing exclusively in Austria.”

Battery tip: Choose the right battery.
Matching banner batteries at a glance!
For the battery matching we use extensive industry and manufacturer data. Due to the innumerable battery and vehicle models, however, matching errors cannot be completely avoided. Please note the following information.

Always compare the following parameters with your existing battery before buying a battery:

  • the dimensions,
  • the circuit* (=layout) and the pole design,
  • whether the base strips are necessary for fastening in your application, or whether there is a bracket fastening at the top of the battery cover,
  • the battery technology (conventional, EFB or AGM battery)

 

Depending on a possible start/stop function, the additional electrical equipment (e.g. pre-heater, sound system, ...), the climate region or the car manufacturer's plant (= production site), different battery sizes/technologies may be installed.

 

*Attention - there is often confusion about the circuit (=layout). Please keep in mind that the battery circuit is always assessed with the poles facing the body.

 

Never install a conventional wet battery in a vehicle with start/stop function that is equipped with an AGM or EFB battery as standard. An AGM or EFB battery in the same housing and performance class must be used again!

Banner Tip: An upgrade from an EFB battery to an even more powerful and cycle-resistant Running Bull AGM battery is possible in housing H5/L2 (60Ah)H6/L3 (70Ah) and H7/L4 (80Ah). In this case it is absolutely necessary to register the new battery (optimal for this one is the BBST Banner Battery Service Tool).

Battery tip: Start of the new motorcycle season.
On the bikes, set, go!
Now is the perfect time to get your bike ready for the first ride. That's how it's done!

The battery, which hopefully will be stored in the garage or basement, can now be disconnected from the charger with charge retention function. After installing the battery, first the plus and then the minus cable is attached. Afterwards the terminals get some more Banner terminal grease or Banner terminal protection spray.

Please note: The ventilation hose must not be kinked during installation (not required for Bike Bull AGM, GEL and AGM PRO batteries). Now your bike is ready for the first exit - VROOOM!

 

If the battery was "forgotten" in the motorcycle, please charge the motorcycle battery.

Voltage regulated chargers such as the Banner Accucharger are best suited. These chargers carry out the charging process fully automatically. Depending on the capacity of the battery, you can use the following chargers:

- Batteries < 9 Ah:

Banner Accucharger 6/12V 2A

- Batteries 9 - 20 Ah:

Banner Accucharger 12V 3A

- Batteries > 20 Ah:

Banner Accucharger 12V 6A Recovery

 

- Remove the battery from the vehicle or disconnect the battery cable (disconnect the negative pole first).

Banner Tip: Before disconnecting and removing the old battery, we recommend using the Banner Memory Saver via the OBD plug (possibly with additional diagnostic adapter) in the motorcycle. This reliably prevents the loss of vehicle data. Suitable for all common motorcycles with 12V battery.

- Check electrolyte level before charging or add demineralised or distilled water if necessary (not possible or not necessary with Bike Bull AGM, GEL and AGM PRO batteries). The screw connections of the battery must not remain open during charging, preferably close them again.

- Connect the positive pole (+) of the battery to the charging terminal (+) of the charger and the negative pole (-) to the negative terminal (-) of the charger and switch on.

- Approximately one tenth of the capacity is recommended as charging current. (e.g. 30 Ah : 10 = 3A charging current). With an automatic charger, e.g. Banner Accucharger, this setting happens automatically, as the name suggests. Charging is finished when the current drops to 0 or no longer decreases or the automatic charger switches off.

- After charging, first switch off the charger and then disconnect it from the battery.

- After charging, check the electrolyte level again. (not applicable for Bike Bull AGM, GEL and AGM PRO batteries) Important: Never open the screw connections of the AGM, GEL and AGM PRO batteries! An acid density measurement or refilling of distilled water is not possible or necessary.

 

Attention: Never install a maintenance-free battery (AGM, GEL, AGM PRO) in a motorcycle without regulator - the maximum charging voltage must not exceed 14.80V!

 

For periodic battery check we recommend the Banner BBT DBA Tester.

By following these tips you are guaranteed a successful season!
