Does your battery need replacing?

In the case of the many vehicles with start/stop systems, a special control unit diagnostic tester, e.g. a KTS tester from Bosch, is used for battery replacement.

    AGM technology in the Bosch AGM battery:

    For passenger cars with start/stop system and braking energy recuperation

    In batteries with AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) technology, special mats of very thin glass fibers lie tightly between the lead plates of the battery and hold all the electrolyte. The high contact pressure minimizes the loss of active material with an extremely low internal resistance. The faster reaction between the electrolyte and the plate material allows the passage of a greater quantity of energy in demanding situations.


    AGM technology: Top-of-the-range power for a peak performance

    AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) is one of the latest top-of-the-range battery technologies, and has the recharging capability to 3 times the number of sicharge / charge cycles compared to conventional starter batteries.


    Bosch batteries at a glance: Suitable for all systems

    If battery replacement is needed, it is important to install AGM batteries again in passenger cars that were fitted with this type of battery when new. Otherwise, the function and positive effects of the start/stop system would be impaired. The battery service life would also be reduced.
