Do RACV Batteries come with a warranty?

What does CCA mean?

CCA stands for Cold Cranking Amps and is the recognised industry standard for rating a battery's cranking performance. The number of plates was once used as the measure for rating batteries, however CCA is now the industry standard.

What is Amp Hour (Ah) rating?

The Amp Hour (Ah) 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.

What is an AGM Battery?

AGM stands for Absorbent Glass Mat. This type of battery uses a non-woven glass mat to separate the plates. The glass mat absorbs and retains sufficient electrolyte for the battery to operate, meaning that  there is no free electrolyte in the cell to spill. These batteries are also known as Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) batteries as each cell has a one-way valve to manage cell pressure. 

What is an EFB?

Enhanced Flooded Batteries (EFB) are being fitted to many vehicles fitted with Idle Stop Start (ISS) technology. These ‘flooded’ batteries are an enhanced version of the standard calcium battery, and are designed to withstand the increased cranking and cycling demanded by vehicles fitted with ISS technology.

What is ISS technology?

Idle Stop Start (ISS) technology, also known as Stop Start, is designed to help reduce vehicle fuel consumption and emissions. The vehicle’s engine automatically shuts down when the vehicle is stationary instead of idling, and will restart when you need to move again. ISS equipped vehicles are fitted with EFB and AGM batteries which are designed to cope with the additional electrical loads and repeated cranking required from this technology.

Why do some car batteries need to be registered?

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.

What if I don’t need a new battery?

Don’t worry! If it turns out that you don’t need a battery replacement, you won’t be charged for one. Non-members will however incur a $30 fee for the battery test.

Payment on the day

Our technician will take payment upon completion of your appointment. You can pay via EFTPOS, Visa or MasterCard.
