Battery types 1
Starting batteriesStarting batteries – are meant for ignition, start of the internal combustion engine. Their role is to provide electric current strong enough for the engine to start. In vehicles they ensure the power supply of other electric devices. Lead acid batteries have been in use worldwide for a long time. The way lead-acid batteries work has not been essentially changes from the beginning. Developments in technologies, manufacturing process and materials used have continually improved the traits of the batteries. Different types of starting batteries can be found on the market at present. Above all, the difference between them is in storage time and method of maintenance as well as starting capabilities.
Basic distribution of starting batteries is:
1. batteries with standard ignition strength – used for vehicles with standard equipment without heavy energy consumers.
2. batteries with greater ignition strength - used for vehicles with additional equipment and devices that need larger battery capacity for uninterrupted driving.
3. batteries with both starting and discharge role – used for vehicles with extremely heavy energy consumers i.e. double air conditioning, music, amplifiers, computer as well as for boats yachts and other vessels where the battery must have a double role of both ignition and supplying all other energy consumers.
