Car batteries suppliers and fitters

Is your car battery unreliable? It takes a lot longer to fully charge a modern car battery than many people realise – typically 240 miles of driving with no load or eight hours of continuous driving. Considering most people use their cars for work, pleasure or for the local school run its hardly surprising that occasionally car batteries will lead to problems.

If you only make short stop-start journeys, your car battery won't have the chance to fully charge, which will considerably shorten its life. The good news is we offer car battery replacement if things are running a little flat. We also provide advice to help you find the best battery for you.

Car Battery Fitting and Replacement

We offer car battery fitting and replacement, and provide batteries for all other types of vehicles, including motorcycle batteries. We understand that everyone has different characteristics in mind when it comes to finding the perfect battery. Whether its performance or economy that you require, we can match you with a high-quality new car battery that won’t compromise on reliability and durability.

 

What If I Need A Stop Start Battery?

We have a diverse range of stop start batteries to accommodate your vehicle. Start stop technology can be found in an increasing number of new cars that roll off the production lines, as manufacturers seek to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions produced by vehicles to meet international and government targets.
 
Manufacturers including Audi, BMW and Volkswagen are strong advocates of start stop technology. The engine switches off at a standstill to conserve fuel, and automatically starts upon driving away. Cars with start stop technology put a greater demand on the vehicle’s battery. Our team of specialists will be happy to discuss our variety of stock to find the right start stop battery for your vehicle.

 

Which Car Battery Would We Recommend for Stop Start Vehicles?

We would highly recommend a Tungstone car battery for your vehicle. They are reliable and high-quality batteries that feature calcium technology, providing benefits such as a longer life and better resistance to high temperatures.

 

Top Tips for Prolonging the Life of Your Car Battery:

• When you exit your vehicle, double check that you turn off your lights. Leaving them on unnecessarily will significantly shorten the charge of your car battery.

• Drive your car frequently and limit the amount of quick, short rides you take to ensure that your battery remains fully charged.

• Ensure your car battery is tightly fastened to reduce vibrations that can potentially cause damage.
