Calcium Technology Batteries

Calcium technology batteries provide increased reliability, service life and starting power and were designed to meet the growing demands placed on today’s batteries. These include increased numbers of in-car accessories, more sophisticated vehicle electronics, heated windows, windscreens and seats, short or stop/start journeys and high under bonnet temperatures, all of which have a large draining effect on your car’s battery.

The Calcium is essentially alloyed with the lead in the battery, this leads to less gassing in the battery and consequently up to 80% less fluid loss. It is this that enables the battery to accept a higher charge rate and recharge much quicker ensuring you always have the power available when you need it. It also means the battery has a much longer shelf life and lower self discharge, meaning the battery can go unused for longer periods.

Many newer vehicle models charge batteries up to 18 volts, which is much higher than a conventional charging system and is best suited to calcium technology batteries.

If your car was manufactured after 2000, it is likely you’ll need a calcium battery and conversely older cars may struggle to charge a calcium battery properly.

Advantages of Calcium Technology Batteries

  • Substantially longer life
  • Greater overcharge resistance
  • Faster recharge acceptance
  • High cyclic performance
  • High CCA (starting) and A/H performance
  • Copes with deeper and more intense discharges
  • Maintenance free
  • Works with Smart Charge Systems (SCS)
