Quality products at Bosch Car Service: Batteries

Car batteries from Bosch – the driving force

Modern vehicles are fitted with all sorts of new technology such as driving safety systems and thus require far more power than in the past. Conventional power sources soon reach their limits. Would you have known? One in three breakdowns is the result of a defective starter battery. The experts at Bosch Car Service workshops are only too aware of the fact that the cheapest alternative is not always the best choice. Certain vehicles even need special batteries such as the S5 EFB and S6 AGM start/stop models from Bosch, which provide far more power – even after a high number of charging cycles and in any weather conditions.

Deep Cycle Applications: Robust design and the addition of a membrane to both positive and negative plates results in a battery that is more able to withstand ongoing discharging and recharging and has twice the cycle life of standard flooded automotive batteries under start / stop conditions

High Cranking Power: The fully framed grids, additives and advanced processing techniques maximise the cranking power of this range.

Recycling: The new EFB range is fully recyclable.

Environmental Sustainability: The EFB range lasts longer than conventional flooded lead-acid batteries and therefore require less frequent replacement, saving energy, resources and emissions during manufacture

Factory Sealed - Never add Water: Under normal operating conditions this battery will not require topping up during its cycle life.

Suitable for all passenger vehicles.

  • Stop / start capable.
  • Warranty: The EFB range carries a 2 year nationwide warranty in South Africa for automotive applications.

C3 and C7 battery chargers - full power at the touch of a button

At low winter temperatures, cars require far more energy than when it is above freezing. At the same time cold starting puts a tremendous strain on the battery. If the vehicle is also fitted with a wide range of convenience functions and the battery is drained by a lot of short journeys it is important to think about re-charging in good time. This is best done by simply connecting a C3 or C7 charger from Bosch to your car battery and starting the charging process. Both models permit safe and simple charging at the touch of a button.

The C3 is intended for the automatic, quick and safe charging of smaller car, motor-scooter or moped batteries, whilst the C7 can even be used for the heavy-duty starter batteries of transporters, mobile homes or powerful motorcycles. With a current rating of 7 A it is the ideal solution for large 12 and 24 V batteries.

  • Simple charging and maintenance of voltage levels for all types of lead-acid battery
