Our #1 selling Century High-Performance battery, sealed maintenance free range, comes with a 24 Month Nationwide Warranty and Smart Drive™ Technology, and has undergone years of engineering research and development, innovative design and “Second to None” production processes to ensure their reliability, especially in harsh driving conditions.
Driving conditions are different everywhere, which is why drivers in colder climates such as Europe and North America may be driving vehicles with batteries that are specifically designed to withstand low temperatures, ice and snow.
While the features that make these car batteries reliable in cold climate are desirable for these conditions, they are not the practical choice for the harsh, drier and hotter Australian weather. Australia is blessed with plentiful sunshine, and temperatures can rise to levels that batteries designed for colder climates just cannot handle.
While regular imported batteries will perform decently for the most basic motoring needs, they may not be the best choice for harsher conditions prevalent in Australia — and experienced Australian motorists know this.
Why should you choose the Century High-Performance Battery For Your Vehicle?
Car Battery Australia understands how vital a reliable battery is when you’re driving at challenging conditions. Cement and asphalt roads can absorb and reflect heat increasing the under-bonnet temperatures dramatically. Batteries not built for this type of punishment can quickly get damaged or compromised, leading to less than ideal performance levels and ultimately, added cost.
The Century High-Performance battery range primarily makes use of “High-Grade” internal components to reduce corrosion, water loss and gassing, which are contributory factors to the deterioration of the protective material in many vehicle batteries. As a result, motorists can rely on the Century brand to give them long-lasting starting power and safety on and off-road performance.
What Are The Century High-Performance Battery Main Benefits And Features?
Average life-span based on our customer reports, under normal driving conditions
- Our No 1 selling Sealed Maintenance Free range, has an average life-span of 3.5 to 4 years, exceeding their warranty periods by far.
1) Robust cast plate design
Designed and manufactured to deliver lower internal resistance, offering superior engine starting power, resilient vibration resistance leading to prolonged service life.
2) Optimized plate paste formulation
The plate paste is specifically formulated to reduce electrolyte evaporation and enhanced charge acceptance, promoting exceptional performance and prolonged service life.
3) Expanded grid/plate design
Manufactured with Tin and a fine surface grain to combat corrosion, reduced electrical resistance to deliver optimum energy output, and water consumption minimized.
4) Durable polyethylene plate separators
Primary purpose to insulate the opposing plates against short-circuiting due to their resilient puncture resistant properties. Contribute to lower electrical resistance and sustained electrolyte dispersion, delivering higher cranking amps to start your engine.
5) Integrated flame arrestor
Efficient protection against external sparks, flames and other various sources of ignition.
6) Mud rack case design
Specialist support racks for the plates, to minimizes short circuit and vibration.
7) Robust polypropylene case
Reinforced protection for internal components, that arise from shock and vibration extremities.
8) Durable carry handle
The handle is ergonomically designed with a thickly grooved hand support, for comfort and ease of replacing and storing battery.
9) Built-in state of charge indicator
Quickly helps you diagnose the state of charge and condition of battery. Lets you determine if charging is needed, or requires replacing.
10) Cast on strap
Extra thickness in the manufacturing of the cast on strap, offers lower electrical resistance and prevents premature degradation from heat and vibration.
11) Labyrinth Lid Technology
The primary purpose of the Century Advanced Labyrinth Structure is to work in unison with the Heat Sealed Double Lid Technology to condense and retain water vapour produced by the battery in operation or charging mode.
Whilst the upper lid remains cooler, the vapours condense and flow back to the lower lid as water. Hence, flowing back safely into the battery to maintain healthy fluid levels to deliver prolonged lifespan in Australia’s hotter climate.
