Types of batteries and ratings
Not sure about the right battery for your vehicle? Check which batteries we recommend for different vehicles.
Cold Cranking Amps (CCA)
This is the industry-recognised standard for rating a battery’s starting power. Higher-rated CCA batteries last longer and perform better than lower CCA-rated batteries.
Amp hour (Ah) rating
This rating is a way of describing a battery's capacity. It describes the capacity of a battery based on a discharge period of 20 hours.
Our 4WD batteries have higher CCA for greater starting power, hot-melt glue over the plates to prevent vibration damage and eliminate acid leakage.
Idle Stop Start (ISS) technology
If you have an ISS equipped vehicles you’ll need an EFB or AGM battery. With ISS, the vehicle’s engine automatically shuts down when the vehicle is stationary instead of idling. It restarts when you need to move again.
Enhanced Flooded Batteries (EFB)
These batteries are often fitted to vehicles with ISS. They are an enhanced version of the standard calcium battery. They can withstand the increased cranking and cycling demanded by vehicles with ISS.
Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) batteries
This battery uses a non-woven glass mat to separate the plates. The glass mat absorbs and retains enough electrolyte to operate. Each cell has a one-way valve to manage cell pressure.
Some vehicles are equipped with Battery Management Systems (BMS) which require new batteries to be registered with the system. In most instances, RACV Batteries technicians will perform this registration on applicable vehicles.
