The Carmakers Choice

Varta always has been the choice of the manufacturers.As Europe's foremost experts in battery design and construction, they work closely with many leading carmakers to produce the right battery for each vehicle.As a result, Varta batteries are fitted as orginal equipment to all the leading vehicle manufacturers, such as Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, CitroŽn, Fiat, Ford, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Peugeot, SAAB, Skoda, Vauxhall, Volvo and VW.They know that Varta match the exacting standards and specifications they set themselves.

Perfect for Power Hungry Vehicles

The innovation of Varta's Calcium-Silver Battery Technology was driven by the need to combat the strain placed on today's car batteries by short journeys, sophisticated vehicle electronics and higher under-bonnet temperatures.The corrosion-resistant properties of the new lead-calcium-silver alloy, the superior electrical conductivity it offers and the all-round technological design improvements mean that despite the extra power demands on today's vehicles, Varta's Calcium-Silver Battery Technology really can meet the power challenge.

Increasing Electrical Consumers on Today's Vehicles

Over the last 30 years the average car's power consumption has risen threefold. Today even a small car needs well over 1,000 watts to ensure that all circuits are functioning correctly - and that excludes the current required to start the engine.

The larger the car, the greater the strain placed upon the battery. Even when parked, a modern car's control and storage chips need to be powered from the standard battery.

Power consumption on the move is also rising significantly as a result of increasing on-board electrical consumption by equipment now regarded as essential for safe and enjoyable motoring.

Tried and Tested Technology

To put the superiority of Varta's Calcium-Silver Battery Technology to the test, they spent 4 years putting it through its paces - both on and off the road. Three major tests have proven conclusively that Varta's Calcium-Silver Battery Technology is streets ahead of conventional battery technologies.

The OE Test

In continuous discharging and recharging tests under the most demanding conditions, Varta's Calcium-Silver Battery Technology outperformed all rival batteries. Little wonder that this technology is already supplied to Audi, BMW, CitroŽn, Ford, Jaguar, Peugeot, Saab, Volvo and VW for their latest models.

The Cold Start Test

In freezing conditions, Varta's Calcium-Silver Battery Technology delivered more starting power and 20% longer service life than conventional hybrid technology batteries, guaranteeing reliability in the most demanding conditions.

It is worth remembering that at 0 oC, 35% of a car battery's cold cranking capacity is lost, and yet at the same temperature 55% more power is required to start an engine on a cold morning.

The Desert Test

Subjected to rigorous stop/start usage in extreme temperatures, Varta's Calcium-Silver Battery Technology lasted significantly longer than conventional batteries.

Temperatures approaching 100 oC in today's engine compartment are double what they were in 1980, which can damage the battery and shorten its service life.Varta's Calcium-Silver Battery Technology overcomes this as the above graph shows.
