Our high-quality batteries (made from Nickel and Calcium) come with a 24-month warranty. The latest batteries give up to 20% longer service life than conventional lead-acid products, so you won’t need to replace your new battery as you do inferior models.
When last did you check your car battery?
A little battery maintenance can save you a lot of hassle… Problems with car batteries are high on the AA’s call-out rate, but with new technology, Silver Calcium batteries provide a much better cold-starting performance and longer service life than ever before.
If your car is already displaying worrying symptoms, such as sluggish cold-starting (in the morning), then the only solution may be to replace the battery with a Silver Calcium model from the AA. The best advice is to have the battery checked before winter starts, particularly if it is more than three years old.
An automotive battery could last up to three years, which means around 30% of cars need a new battery each year – a worrying statistic considering that without a working battery a driver is stranded.
Batteries produced in South Africa are of good quality but they are often poorly maintained. A common error is to overfill or under-fill a battery with distilled water, which reduces the battery’s lifespan and could cause it to fail at the most unexpected moment.
Here are our tips to ensure a longer battery life:
- If your battery is not sealed, you will need to maintain battery fluid at the correct level.
- Have the charging system checked regularly.
- Keep the battery clean of dirt and grease.
- Defective dashboard switches for seemingly low current consumers like the glove compartment light or rear wash/wipe should be rectified before they drain the battery.
- The condition and correct tension of the V-belt connecting the engine to the alternator should be checked to prevent any slippage.
