As the batteries become fully charged and are no longer able to accept any further electrical energy. Consequently, the battery voltage will rise. Of course, when the voltage reaches the regulation level (varies with battery type see below) So, starts to dump power the controller’s lights are a solid red. Naturally,this energy is dissipated as heat into the surrounding environment. Significantly,more or less power is diverted to the dump load. According to how much is being supplied to the battery from the turbine.

069 Bentley Battery-Bentley Brooklands calls in to Pellon Tyres for a New Battery Fitting.

069 Bentley Battery

Beautiful Bentley calls in for a new 069 Bentley Battery fitting

On a  lovely sunny day last week. We had a very special car call in for the  Battery testing. Hence, the car was a Bentley. Subsequently, the owner told us a bit of the history of the car. For this reason he explained that the car was indeed a Bentley Brooklands . Because of special extras that the car was kitted out with. Thus , car shone in the Winter sun. Therefore, attracted attention from some of our other customers . Who were  in the garage at the time. As a result, I certainly had to go look and took this picture for my blog.

Incidentally the car was fitted with an 069 Bentley Battery, this is the most common battery fitted to these cars.  

 Brookland Cars continued Bentley’s relatively angular design theme. which was also used on contemporary Rolls-Royce vehicles. Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. Accordingly, the exterior design featured the classic Bentley waterfall grille . As well as dual headlights with wraparound parking lights. As in many Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles.

Then the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending boot lid and chrome B-pillars. Remarkably,the interior remained relatively unchanged . Thus, from previous Bentley models . With a more curvaceous design elements surrounding the leather-wrapped centre console. Moreover, the steering wheel and interior door panels remained unchanged.

Although the one major change . Would be the relocation of the gear selector to the centre console . For decades the standard practice among R-R and and Bentley models utilised a steering column mounted selector. The interior continued to be surrounded by ample wood grain which featured engraved, lighter-colored outlines on the door panels.In the U.S. prices for the Brooklands started at around $156,500… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bentley_Brooklands.

The 069 has now become a very popular battery size. It is fitted to many car models, including many imported cars, such as Nissan, Toyota, Mitsubishi and many more.

The strangers were Star readers, who spotted my column on Christmas Eve and were moved by Daigle’s Dickensian predicament.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

We  also gave a gift of two Free gift mobility Batteries ?

Just before Christmas. I was delivering a car battery to a customer in Dingle Lancashire the UK. Subsequently, I happened to take the the wrong turning into the neighbors drive. Soon, I realised that I was at the wrong delivery address. Because all that was there was a small wooden stable and a horse.

Consequently, I got out of the van. Soon, I was approached by a lady in her late fifties. To my surprise, she had lost her legs below her knees.As a result, she was walking on her knee stumps. The lady was stood up but only came up to my chest in height. My delivery van is covered with large pictures of mobility batteries for advertising. I noticed that the lady spotted this.

She asked me the price of batteries for her mobility scooter. Unfortunately, she said that she could not afford to buy any new batteries. As her present 12 Volt Battery was old and running down. For this reason, I felt very sad for lady.Hence, and continued to next door to deliver the car battery. Eileen is severely disabled after having both legs amputated.In a motorcycle accident. For this reason, her only means of getting about was on her mobility scooter. Which is battery powered. She does not have any prosthetic limbs for whatever reason. Eileen, relies totally on her mobility scooter. It was very strange to see her mount the scooter.Because she has developed a special knack for lifting herself up. Using, her now very strong arms.

Free gift mobility Batteries

The guy next door told me that Eileen could not afford to buy any new scooter batteries. Especially as how she was practically house bound. This pulled at my heartstrings. Therefore, being a good Christian i decided to give her two Free gift mobility Batteries. I returned to my stores in Halifax, Yorkshire UK and collected the two Free gift mobility Batteries to give to Eileen. I would have been choked to give her the  Free gift mobility Batteries direct and so i called into Eileen’s

neighbour who had bought the original battery.

The guy in and when i told him what i was doing he had a tear in his eye. I gave him the Free gift mobility Batteries, to give to Eileen, when i had gone back to Yorkshire. He telephoned me the next day to say that she could not believe what i had done for her, and she sent me a lovely Christmas card.

As an update to this Eileen is still going strong and looks after some horses for a good friend, she is still getting about on her mobility scooter and the Mobility scooter batteries, that i gave her are also  still going strong.

is kinda bad or not very good or a little weak, then go ahead and replace it because it’s better now to replace…

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

Winter is when your battery is likely to fail

In general most car batteries fail in service during cold weather in winter time, There are many problems that could affect your car battery. With new modern cars with all their electrics you will find that the battery will fail you suddenly, this is because of the large amount of electrics that the modern car battery has to handle, including engine management computers.

In the past if were having freezing nights. Therefore, it would take a car battery a couple of weeks to actually fail. Thus, giving the car owner plenty of time to find a replacement battery. Hence, the problem is now the car battery will fail suddenly.Usually, just where you don’t want it to. Especially, when you are out and about. Many of our customers.Who have a flat battery, will call us out. Because they are stuck in some town centre or shopping mall.

Now we say that the battery should be tested. Consequently, before the winter comes. Or at your regular service period. Predominantly, before the onset of Winter. Thus, we always test the battery and report back. Especially, if there is any signs that the battery may fail. Perhaps, in the near future. Most of our clients will respond to this and replace the battery before they get caught out."<yoastmark

Caravan Batteries-time to check and test them before the new Spring season arrives.

Caravan Batteries

Caravan Batteries

As I am sat here writing this article. I must admit, that I am envious of all the people who are now buying their caravan batteries. So, in preparation for the new caravan season. The year has been a poor year for car batteries, because of the very mild winter.

caravan batteries
New caravan batteries have onboard

I suppose though that we battery dealers should not really complain. As we have had a decent run of very cold winters. Hence, we should have known that we were due to have a mild one. So, and we certainly did. In fact, it is the first year that I can ever remember in my 65 years. Where we did not have any snowfall whatsoever.

We have now written last winter off as a bad year.Especially, for car batteries  sales. Thus, we are already looking forward the leisure and caravan batteries season. Which has already started with a bang, (what you lose on the swings you gain on the roundabout) as the saying goes.

Britain is now largest touring caravan market in Europe. We took over from the then number one country Germany in 2003. Of course, we were still number one in 2006 when the latest figures were released by… http://www.politics.co.uk/ .It is estimated that there are over half a million touring caravans in the UK. Including another 330,000 static caravan holiday homes. I am going to write about the growing number of motor-homes in another article.

Caravan Batteries

Over the years, many caravan owners have asked me the same question? Is there a difference between caravan batteries and car batteries? And the answer is YES. In the early days, car batteries were used to power the minimal electrics that caravans would use. There were no TVs, Fridges and all the other modern day electrics that you can see in today’s modern caravans, just a few light bulbs and an electric pump. The normal car or truck battery would have done the job perfectly.

Now we have seen the development of the new type of leisure batteries. The most popular one that we are now selling is, in fact, a 100 amp battery that is made and developed by the largest battery maker in the World Johnson Controls. They decided that the design of the car battery was fine, but it needed to hold more storage than starter power. This was done by using thicker plates that were able to store more power to supply the caravan with the electricity that it needed for the evenings.

XV24MF caravan batteries are a good buy.

This type of battery is known as the LV26 was then marketed as a leisure battery and would provide the caravan owner with auxiliary power, which as able to be

Caravan Batteries
Caravan Batteries; 2x 75 amp Lucas Leisure Batteries

charged by the car’s electric system on a route, or as now with the use of solar panels, on a sunny day. You can upgrade to an AGM battery system, which will work better with solar panels, because of the better charge and discharge rate, but for the average caravan trip the LV26 will be perfect for the job, these caravan batteries have now been tried and tested over the years and generally do a good job and will give the caravan owner good service for about four or five years.

To aid in prolonging the life of your caravan batteries, I would invest in a 12v smart battery charger, and connect it to your battery over the winter period, when your caravan is not in use, we recommend the chargers that are made by Ring Automotive and are available online. I hope that this article is of use to you and happy caravan trips.

Drivers of the Range Rover come into two groups of motorists. Basically the owners of the older models will go for cheapest battery. But will also purchase the biggest battery. Hence, that they can to fit their

particular car. Consequently, which is a 020 Range Rover battery. Other people who own the newer models.Will have a tendency to want a better make of battery and also the correct battery for the car.

Some of the more up to date Range Rovers also take a battery that is larger than the 019 battery. This battery in  Varta batteries is coded as the Varta Silver L1 (120) 020 Range Rover battery and is the largest car battery fitted to these cars.

The 120 battery is only slightly larger than the 019. But it has much more capacity and the 120 battery .Hence, must be fitted because of the higher capacity. Due to the large amount of electrics that most cars are now using. Thus, to control emissions. The users of the older Range Rovers will often buy Varta Car Batteries Online. Making cost savings say compared with buying from the local garage. These earlier models have batteries that are easier to fit, usually just the same as a regular family car, but the later more modern cars should have their battery fitted by an expert at an Autocentre or garage.

The Range Rover cars are premium cars and should only use premium batteries. In all my 35 years experience I would only recommend that such cars should use Varta batteries and the correct one for the car. The Varta Battery Prices are made in several European countries by Johnson Controls.

Varta also make the batteries for stop/start models of cars that use the Varta stop/start AGM batteries. These batteries are sold by Varta stockists and should only be replaced by the exact same battery that is fitted to the vehicle.

Varta batteries stands originally for (Vertrieb Aufladung Reparatur Transportabler Akkumulatoren). Interestingly,  had its headquarters in the German cities of Berlin and Hagen. Of course, in the district of Westphalia. As a result, the business was bought by a certain Gunther Quandt just after the first world war.

The Varta car Battery company then made batteries. Unfortunately,  that were used in the second world war German battle machine. Intensively,used to help power submarines and also for the German Luftwaffe. Henceforth, the batteries were made by slave labour under very poor working conditions. So, perhaps the side of Varta batteries that we should forget.

Modern Varta battery standards

The modern day Varta car Battery product is one of excellence. Of course, raising standards of the battery world with its quality products. Fortunately, After many changes in directors. Then the company ownership Varta batteries was purchased by Johnson Controls in 2002. Re-capitalization, was thought to be a great step forward in the Varta car Battery industry. Raising the standards of quality even higher than previously thought possible. 

It is thought that Johnson Controls paid in the region of $240 million for the Varta battery side of the business and the deal went through by the end of 2003, and is now one of the largest battery companies on the Planet.

069 Lucas Car Batteries

069 Lucas Car Batteries-Do Lucas Make Their Own car batteries

Premium 069 Lucas Car batteries069 Lucas Car Batteries

So, today’s car battery market is flooded with all kinds of different makes of products. Some makes are household names. Such as 069 Lucas Car Batteries and others are not so well known. All kinds of makes are springing up. Of course,with claims and counter claims about how good their batteries are.

Significantly, one of the driving forces in this has been the internet ! Especially E-bay. This is where you are likely to find the cheapest car battery prices . Subsequently, then the problem is that do you trust what you are buying. I have noticed recently. That the cheapest price for 069 Lucas Car Batteries. Consequently, is not even a new one ! But looks like a re-used product what ever that means ! Many auto owners however will want to buy a quality product. Going for the products that are made by a reputable company. Of course, such as Lucas who make the 069 Lucas Car Batteries.

Are you selling your car ?

The truth is that unless you are selling your car. Then you should stick to a named product that you can trust. Naturally,the better makes will not be the cheapest. But you must be able to rely on the after service. Customers are better off ordering your new one from an actual web-site. Of course, than any other form of internet selling platform. The website will be accountable if you should get a problem with say a delivery that has gone wrong or a faulty battery.

You can even ring up a web-site to confirm that the one that you are buying is the correct one for your car. A few examples of names you can trust would be Lucas batteries. As i have said earlier they do not manufacture their own any more. The rights to sell 069 Lucas Car Batteries were bought by wholesalers Manbat. The company sell two standards. The Classic and the  Premium.

Lucas premium car batteries are a first class product

I have been selling car products now for well over 30 years, longer than I care to remember, and consequently I have seen these companies come and go , but the 069 Lucas Car Batteries has always kept a high standard of quality, and maintained a good high standard in the dealers. The  premium battery is a maintenance free battery (that means you dont have to top them up every two minutes) with calcium/ calcium technology, to cope with the modern car electric systems and slightly higher voltage requirements. This battery is  made by Johnson controls and is in a black casing, which is a recycled product. The  classic is more of a budget battery suitable for the older models of cars and lower engine capacities, this battery could be made by different European  manufacturers, but is selected by Manbat to offer excellent service in use.

As a footnote Johnson Controls have now sold their battery manufacturing side of the business.

069 Lucas Car Batteries

A new battery just fitted in our Halifax depot UK

You know that if you select  069 Lucas Car Batteries that you can rely on the dealer to look after you if you should occur any problems after the purchase, whether in the their store or on their website, beware of other selling platforms on the internet, they may have vanished when a problem raise its ugly head.

Quality Car batteries- And other top tips for driving your CAR in the wet winter conditions

Quality Car batteries; driving the car in winter conditions

One of the most obvious but important parts of winter driving is to prepare  for the bad weather that will be certain to affect us.

Every winter we are bombarded by bad weather, and most of us will get caught out and unprepared for the journey back home from shopping or from work. This happens time and time again to many motorists who get caught out in heavy rain and flooding similar to the weather this week, or a really fast and heavy snow storm. I f you check your car out you will eliminate most of the worry of bad road conditions, and feel safer and glad that you were prepared.Qaulity Car batteries

  • It always pays to have your car checked at a Unipart Car Care Centre for a pre winter check. This takes the form of checking your levels for antifreeze to make sure that it is the correct strength to withstand freezing temperatures, also your screen wash and oil levels must be checked. The early dark nights also call for your lights checking, how many times do you see a car with only one head on, that looks like a motorbike from a distance ?.
  • The most important things to check are your tyres. I know that I harp on about it, but please buy a set of winter tyres, this alone will help you on wet and snow covered winter roads and give you much more confidence when traveling out to work or to the shops. Many more drivers are now switching to winter tyres and are spreading the news to their relations and friends, they really do make a massive difference when driving on roads in winter time.

Check the depth of the water before going through in your car

Other advice now relates to flooding. Flooding has now become a common scene here in the UK. When you approach a flood please take care not take your vehicle  in too deep. Try to avoid the flooded road if possible and if you must go across the water make sure you stop and check your brakes on the other side, a minor point is that water could damage your exhaust pipes and catalytic converter a few weeks later. Another part of the car that is neglected in winter is your car battery. You can easily be caught stranded away from home if your battery lets you down. If your vehicle is over 5 years old it may be better for you to change the battery for a new one before your old battery lets you down. Remember it always happens when you are away from home and will cost you less to replace it , than expensive breakdown charges. if you do have to buy a new battery do make sure that you chose Quality Car batteries. They often come with a better warranty and will last longer
