fiam-agmStart Stop systems have been a feature on some car models since as far back as the 1990’s, but really came to the fore after 2006. Since then they have been fitted to more and more new models in an effort to gain greater fuel economy.  By 2015 it is estimated that 70% of all new cars made will feature Start Stop technology.

This means that battery replacement on cars with this micro hybrid technology will a growing issue this year as these special batteries come to the end of their normal life cycle. Certain VW, BMW, Mini, Citroen, Mazda, Fiat and Toyota models will be particularly affected. Normal lead acid battery technology is not suited to these applications. Like-for-like replacement is essential, as the wrong replacement can cause premature battery failure, electrical system failure, or in extreme cases the risk of explosion.

ADE battery supplier Fiamm has been a pioneer in new battery technology for many years and today can offer a replacement range of EcoForce Absorbent Glass Mat Technology (AGM) batteries perfectly suited to Start Stop applications. These new generation batteries have much higher charging and discharging acceptance. This means unlike conventional batteries they can cope with the particular demands of the new fuel saving technology.
