Daily Tech Johnson Controls smaller battery pack may jolt auto industry The Detroit News Plymouth —Global automotive supplier Johnson Controls says it has reduced a micro-hybrid battery pack from the size of a car trunk to the size of a shoebox,…

Johnson controls are a leading battery pack company

This is yet another major step that Johnson controls are involved in, a realistic sized Lithium Ion Battery Pack.

One of the new range of Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery will be used to power a boat outboard motors and electric motors made by Torqeedo a German boat manufacturer who will use these  new  Leisure Batteries, (that will be made in Johnson controls Holland plant). The new marine batteries are to made from a

modified version of its plug in Hybrid electric vehicle battery, that will be waterproof and will not be effected by the salt water on marine boats.

Johnson Controls are one of the largest manufacturers of 12 v lead acid batteries in the world and are now getting involved in making batteries from the new technology era that we are getting into.

Some of the new types of batteries are creating some problems at the moment for the scientists to find answers to.This includes overheating and the length of time that these batteries will last on one charge, but i am sure that answers are imminent in the near future.

Hi I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the Garage and tyre and Battery business now for 40 years. Subsequently, I have worked for a couple for national tyre companies . Of course, in my younger days. Naturally, before starting my first business. As a result, I now own a company here in the UK called Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre. Consequently, I am a keen blogger about anything to do with cars and their related products . Thus, that will help my business to grow. We are members of Point-S and Motor-Codes.Also a Unipart Car Care Centre and of course Tyre-safe.

Johnson Controls buys 90% stake in Colombian battery maker – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Johnson Controls buys 90% stake in Colombian battery maker
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Johnson Controls Inc. said Friday it has acquired a 90% stake in battery supplier MAC, which does business in Central and South America.

Hi what can you say about Johnson controls

“They are the World’s biggest battery makers and have made significant progress in its expansion plans and that now includes this acquisition in South America. Johnson controls have always been at the forefront of automotive technology and that includes their battery division.

Johnson Controls latest line of development is a compact Lithium-Ion , that is not much larger the a normal lead acid car battery. The battery is a 24 volt battery and is being looked at by car manufacturers with much interest. Johnson controls also brought the AGM “stop/start” battery onto the market and has been used on many new models. The only point that I would like to make is that as a Varta Battery dealer we have to have a special electrical device to enable us to change the battery, which costs about £600?

Other than that we sell many battery products that are made by Johnson controls, these include Varta batteries, Lucas batteries and also Numax Johnson Controlsbatteries, all of which are excellent quality.

Going back to the new 24 volt battery, this new battery is expected to lower emissions and improve the cars fuel economy to help make a greener planet. Another good point is that this battery is expected to a cheap battery compared with the massive price tags on the Lithium-Ion batteries used on the EV electric vehicles that are in use today. This battery could also replace the standard lead acid batteries now fitted to new cars, but there is an issue with the disposal of the old batteries and as now the problem has yet to be solved”
