Varta's Trio range has something for everyone

Older cars tend to have battery problems but even current models with Stop/Start technology can fail if not properly maintained, says Johnson Controls, manufacturers of the VARTA range of batteries.

The first cars using Stop/Start rolled out of factories back in 2005 and will be standard fit on more than 70% of all new cars made this year. If one of these batteries fails, a like-for-like replacement is needed, such as VARTA’s Start-Stop Plus and Blue Dynamic EFB units which must be fitted with the right diagnostic tools by technicians who have undertaken training in this area.

Its Trio range is designed to suit all vehicles and budgets. The Black Dynamic products are for older cars with fewer electrical draws, Blue Dynamic is for those featuring the basic Stop/Start and high-end, prestige models with full Stop/Start technology are offered the VARTA Start-Stop Plus battery with AGM technology, providing higher cycle stability and better charge acceptance. Two new batteries join this range for greater coverage of the growing replacement battery market.
