EFB START STOP CAR BATTERIES
AGM BATTERIES EXPLAINED
AGM stands for absorbent glass mat. These AGM battery types are currently being installed on the new top of the range, stop start vehicles and other luxury vehicles on the market. They can also be very useful on performance cars that do low mileage or vehicles that have heavy electrical demands.
Stop start vehicles are becoming more and more popular due to the EU fuel emission campaign. The growing demand for AGM batteries has increased 14% in just 2 years in the United Kingdom alone.
EFB BATTERIES EXPLAINED
Enhanced flooded battery technology, increasingly referred to as EFB technology in the market, offers a cost effective solution for entry level Start-Stop vehicles. EU emissions targets for these vehicles are lower than those set for higher performance models.
This has led to manufacturers developing a battery technology that meets the demands of Start-Stop operation in a higher state of charge than expected from AGM technology, but lower than that expected from standard wet-flooded starter batteries.
