Stop/Start Batteries


Is your car fitted with Stop/Start technology?

This may be known as i-Stop, Smart Start or SkyActiv.

It’s a great feature and helps to reduce emissions and lower fuel consumption in modern passenger and commercial vehicles, but it also is very hard on batteries. Start/Stop technology draws current from your battery when the vehicle is sitting at the lights with the engine off. That means your battery has to run the lights, wipers, cooling and heating systems, as well as accessories, GPS, Stereo and Bluetooth without the alternator putting charge back into the battery. This drains your battery and causes them to have a shorter overall life than a regular car battery.
