Many modern cars are now fitted

with a “stop-start” system. These cars are fitted with AGM or EFB batteries. Both are still Vauxhall Car Batteries, but because of the number of times they have to function, they are more of a deep-cycle battery. So, at first, the stop-start batteries were treated with kid gloves. As a result, we were told all sorts of things about having to use special machines when fitting them, and the DIY motorist would not be able to fit these batteries at home.

However, we feel that this was overexaggerated and overstated.

Consequently, we do sell these batteries online and recommend our own brand of ApolloPower AGM batteries. In these cars, the battery is a part of the computer system. However, cars fitted with these batteries can still be jump-started. The computer senses that the battery is low and sort of switches it off. Leaving a jump start to be performed.
