Looking for a Stop Start Battery in Killingworth, Newcastle upon Tyne?. We offer a vast range of Batteries for all makes of vehicles. If your vehicle is fitted with Stop Start technology you certainly won't go wrong fitting a Bosch Stop-Start Battery
What is Stop Start Technology?
Start/stop systems ensure that the engine cuts out automatically when the vehicle is stationary and thus stops burning fuel. The engine re-starts automatically by pressing the clutch. This can save up to 8% fuel in the urban phase of the “New European Driving Cycle”. Even greater savings are possible in dense urban traffic. This not only cuts fuel costs but also helps to preserve the environment, as vehicles fitted with a start/stop system emit less CO₂.
Always a perfect match
All Bosch start/stop system components are manufactured to high original equipment quality standards and guarantee maximum reliability and durability. They are perfectly matched with the vehicle electronics system, therefore offering excellent operation, a long service life and outstanding ride comfort. Intelligent fuel economy: start/stop system concepts from Bosch.
Start/stop technology by Bosch has by now been implemented by numerous vehicle manufacturers – in compact cars, luxury limousines and powerful sports cars:
S5 A with AGM technology: for start/stop system and recuperation Special micro-glass-fibre mats tight packed between the lead plates of the AGM battery (Absorbent Glass Mat) bind the electrolyte together. The high contact pressure minimizes the loss of active material with an extremely low internal resistance. The rapid reaction between the electrolyte and the plate material allows a greater quantity of energy to be supplied in demanding situations.
Start/stop systems demand a lot from the battery. The Bosch batteries S5 A and S4 E provide a reliable supply of power for the frequent starting and stopping operations. Sufficient power is always available even for high-demand electrical equipment such as the air conditioner or auxiliary heating system.
New heavy load cycles
The introduction of start/stop systems dramatically altered the load profile for vehicle batteries. If there is no start/stop system fitted to the vehicle, the principal task of the battery is to provide power for starting the engine, which is then re-charged by the alternator.
Consequently, the demands in terms of deep cycle resistance and discharge level are not particularly great. Conventional batteries do nothing to save fuel or reduce CO₂ emissions.
In contrast, the battery in vehicles with start/stop systems has to supply power for frequent starting as well as powering the on-board electrical equipment during the stop phase without any assistance from the engine and alternator. This demands a greater deep cycle resistance and discharge level and helps to cut fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions.
S4 E with EFB technology:
For start/stop systems and many electrical devices running with EFB technology (Enhanced Flooded Battery) the positive plate is coated with “polyester scrim”. This provides additional retention of the active material at the plate. The cycle resistance increases when compared to conventional batteries and the battery remains operational even under strong vibrations.
Regenerative braking involves a further task for the battery: It has to act as a buffer store for the electrical energy generated during braking. This energy is then made available when required to increase engine power and save fuel by enabling the alternator to be periodically deactivated (passive boost).
