Century Sealed Maintenance Free Design for your convenience – – No need to add water/electrolyte
Why Do We Recommend Century As Our First Choice Car Battery Replacement Option?
We’ve been supporting Australian-Made quality and local manufacturing since our establishment in 2001.
Others may claim their vehicle batteries are made in Australia, but only Century can hold this claim to be true. They are Australia’s oldest most recognised battery manufacturer since 1928, and we only want the best for our customers, which is You!
Many types of imported batteries are not suited for optimum performance in hot weather or idle-stop-start city peak driving conditions. They are designed to work in much colder climates than ours, such as in Europe, where heat degradation and electrolyte evaporation is minimal.
Century Batteries, innovators of Smart Drive™ Technology, are specifically engineered in Australia to meet and manage the demanding “warm to hot” Australian conditions. Did you know, Heat is the “No 1” enemy of battery deterioration?
The batteries under the Century Ultra High Performance (36 Month Warranty) and Century High Performance (24 Month Warranty) sealed maintenance free range for example, have been designed to include numerous internal features and significant improvements in order to meet motorists’ demands for long-lasting performance and automotive battery reliability.
Why is quality of utmost importance when purchasing your new battery replacement? Buy Australian-Made Quality!
The battery is the “Heart of Your Vehicle.” Not only does it start your car, it powers your on-board auxiliaries such as the A/C, GPS, stereo, lights and the vehicle’s computers. It must also be able to withstand high temperatures, vibration and idling peak traffic driving conditions.
As you can see, it’s primary function is not just to crank your motor over, but also operates interior functions to keep you comfortable, safe and entertained in your everyday on-road trails. Don’t compromise the quality for the sake of saving a few dollars, which may end-up costing you more in the long-run.
Fact: Century is the only battery made in Australia, for Australians. Don’t be informed otherwise, use your due diligence and do your research. Remember, if it’s not “Branded Century”, it’s not made here locally.

Should Your Car Battery Purchase Be Solely Based On Its Cold Cranking Amps (CCA’s)?
Firstly, we must understand how CCA’s are rated. As the word “Cold” is mentioned, the testing procedure involves testing new batteries in a very cold environment of (-18°C). They are placed under-load to measure their amperes discharge rate over a 30 second period, and must not drop below 7.2 Volts (1.2 V per cell) to pass the test.
Please note, these are new fully-charged batteries, and the colder the environment is, the higher the resistance is to allow the electric current to flow through. The warmer the environment is, the lower the resistance is to deliver that same electrical current.
The cold hard facts about CCA overkill
Basically, what this means, in extreme cold, Higher CCA’s are “Crucial”, as internal resistance within the battery to release the electrical current, is dramatically increased. The warmer it is, Higher CCA’s are “Not” as crucial, as internal resistance is decreased, thus releasing the electrical energy in a more effortless delivery.
Fortunately, for us in Australia, we don’t experience these types of extreme harsh winters. Hence, why wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, but here, correct?
The only requirement that’s crucial, is purchasing a car battery that meets your vehicle’s manufacturer’s specifications, and that has a reputable name based on the longevity of its starting and auxiliary power life-cycles.
Food for thought: The most common way manufacturers increase CCA’s, is by adding a stronger/higher specific gravity, sulfuric acid mix, which is detrimental and contributes to increased corrosion of internal components. A fine balance for “Longevity and Power” needs to be achieved, and with over 85 years of manufacturing and innovation excellence here in Australia, Century knows that balance very well.
Don’t get over-sold primarily on higher CCA’s, as this does not totally equate to a premium product. A “Strong House-Hold Brand Name” equates to trustworthy quality, durability and reliability.
Your Century car battery offers you the “Best of Both Worlds”…Cold Cranking Amps that meet vehicle manufacturers specifications, and Long-Life Auxiliary/Starting Cyclic Power for years to come.
