The car battery is often the first thing that comes to mind when the car, motorbike or truck no longer starts. It normally provides the energy needed to start the vehicle or, in modern cars, supplies a number of electrical consumers such as comfort elements or safety systems. If the battery is discharged and cannot be recharged with a battery charger, the vehicle battery has probably reached the end of its life and needs to be replaced. Whether you own a car, boat, motorbike or truck, the right battery is important for a reliable power supply to your vehicle. To help you find the right vehicle battery, you can filter our online shop according to the most important characteristics.
Battery technology is an important aspect. There are basically a few options here:
The conventional lead-acid battery is a good compromise between reliability, robustness and price. They are a good choice for cars without a start-stop system and are often less expensive.
EFB battery (Enhanced Flooded Battery)
The EFB battery has reinforced lead accumulators and therefore has a higher starting current than conventional lead accumulators and is therefore suitable for cars with simpler start-stop systems without recuperation technology, because the more frequent starting processes require more energy.
AGM battery (Absorbent Glass Mat)
The AGM battery was developed in response to the increased demands of modern cars. It is often used in conjunction with start-stop systems with recuperation technology and often offers a longer service life and better performance under high loads.
The voltage is another criterion. Most vehicles use a 12-volt battery, but there are also vehicles with 6-volt batteries. Make sure you select the correct voltage for your vehicle.
The cold start current indicates what the starting power of the battery is at low temperatures. The higher the cold start current, the better the battery will start in cold weather. Consider the climatic conditions in which you will be using your vehicle and select a battery with sufficient cold start current.
Another important factor when choosing a vehicle battery is the battery capacity. Capacity is measured in ampere-hours (Ah) and indicates how much energy the battery can store. A higher battery capacity means a longer operating time before the battery needs to be recharged. If you use a lot of electrical accessories in your car, such as navigation systems or music systems, it is advisable to choose a battery with a higher capacity. Battery capacity plays an important role in ensuring that your vehicle has enough power to meet all your electrical needs.
To find the right car battery for your car, a few things are important:
Check the dimensions of the old battery or the dimensions of the battery compartment so that the new car battery will fit easily in your vehicle.
Follow the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations. Sometimes there are specific requirements for batteries that are suitable for your car model. You can often find this information in the owner's manual.
To find the right car battery for your vehicle, you can use the practical filter options. There you can search specifically for the most important characteristics such as battery technology, voltage, cold start current and battery capacity. You will also find a wide selection of high-quality vehicle batteries from brands such as Varta, Exide and Bosch. With a new battery, you can be sure that your vehicle is always ready for use.
