Car Starter Batteries-Online Sales on the Increase for Quality car batteries

Post Updated 27th Dec 2013

Car Batteries Are Known as Car Starter Batteries

 When car owners think about a new battery they think of a .The Car Starter Batteries that we use in our vehicles are thought of as starter batteries.These batteries will give your vehicle short

bursts of strong  electric power that starts the engine, even on a freezing cold morning. The only time that we think anything about our car starting is when we turn our keys in the morning, and the engine makes a terrible whirring sound before finally petering out, its then that we realise that we need a replacement 12 Volt Car Starter Batteries.

This unfortunate occurrence usually happens when we have to get up for work on a cold frosty morning and low and behold when we turn the key and your auto will not start, and panic sets in. We forget about the first tell tale signs that we missed before the Car Starter Batteries finally let us down.

This was probably the time when you were out at the shops and it took a couple of attempts to start your engine?. Almost all of us car owners are guilty of doing this. In the time of the older type engines that were just engines, without fancy electrics and computers, we could tell that the battery was on its way out about a month before. The car would turn the engine over a few times before eventually starting the vehicle, then the battery would eventually die , giving you plenty of time to sort out another one.

This is certainly not the case these days ,because of all the fancy electronics on our cars. This is because of the amount of electronics that our modern cars have to have on board due to emission controls and the electrical source is needed for 24hours, also things such as alarm systems and immobilizers put a 24hr strain on the Car Starter Batteries. This does not give you time and your car battery fails you immediately, usually at the wrong time and place when you least expect it to go.

This need not happen and can be avoided, most good service Auto-centres will check out your battery when your vehicle is in for a service (as part of the service schedule) and report on its condition, but in my experience most customers take little notice and this eventually leads to dead Car Starter Batteries. This would have been avoided if the customer had fitted a new one when the service centre reported in the service report that the battery was on its last legs and needed changing. This scenario is a common occurrence and motorists tend only to buy a new ones as the last resort.

buying a battery is very easy, you can now buy car batteries online,

Tungstone Car Starter Batteries

People who shop online can usually count on buying  cheap Car Battery Prices.The most important thing that you will have to do when ordering your new one, is to check the Part number of the one that you are replacing, it could be an 063 or a 075 or even a 096 and order the replacement Car Starter Batteries with the same part number . You will see many makes advertised on the internet, such as Quality Tungstone Car Starter Batteries, Lucas and Varta, are all  brands of batteries that I would recommend. Once you know the car battery that you want simply order it online for “next day delivery”. If you have further problems you can contact the battery company on the phone for further advice. Please don’t forget that your battery contains acid that can damage your eyes and skin, if handled correctly it will be perfectly safe, you should always dispose of the old battery in an environmentally friendly way, either by taking it to a scrap yard or to your local refuge site.

Leisure Battery- to Leeds University ends in a nice surprise?

Post Updated 23rd Dec 2013

Wanted to buy 110amp leisure battery

 Leisure Battery;When the phone rang for the hundredth time on Thursday it was a call from a well spoken gentleman with a well educated Scottish accent. He wanted to buy a  leisure battery to go

leisure battery

Large motorhome ready to roll ?

into his motorhome. He chose us from our battery web site www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk, and also the fact that we were from Halifax and we were not too far away, as prompt delivery was important.

 

He turned out to be head of the Devonshire Hall Cumberland Road, part of Leeds University. The university had broke up for the Easter term and he found out that he had a dead battery and therefore required a new one.

I arranged to meet him outside the Devonshire halls at 8.30 am on the following morning with his new battery, as he said that he has a tight schedule. This is just an example of the personal service that we give to our online battery service. While I was waiting I took a walk through the gate into the Devonshire halls outside area. I could not believe my eyes at the outstanding beauty of the building what a shame it is hidden away from the public, the students are so lucky to study in such outstanding architecture of the buildings.

 Sent back old leisure  battery for re-cycling

The guy arrived a little late and he asked if I would drop the new leisure battery off at the back of the buildings into his garage, I obliged accordingly but when he opened his garage door there was a second surprise, the guy owned a 1967 BMC 1100 car in white. He pulled out the car so that I could take a photo for my blog, and gave me two old batteries for re-cycling, This was a great trip out for me (how sad).

Apollo-Power Maintenance Free batteries-This is an important thing to watch out for when buying a battery online

Apollo-Power Maintenance Free batteries

Apollo-Power Maintenance Free batteries and Lucas car batteries require less maintenance

This is an important thing to watch out for when buying a battery online. Some companies sell inferior products and claim that their car batteries are MF

(maintenance free) When there not. An MF battery will be sealed and have no sign of filler caps on top of the batteries at all; they will have a flat top. Although no lead acid battery is sealed? If you laid one on its side, it would leak acid. Only AGM and Gell batteries are indeed sealed.Apollo-Power Maintenance Free batteries

Therefore, 12-volt lead acid Apollo-Power Maintenance Free batteries.Hence, will use up a large percentage of liquid in the battery. Because of the constant charging and dis-charging.Thus, Coupled with the heat from the engine almost boils the acid and causes evaporation, with the loss of liquid and the need to top the battery up with “distilled water” just like in the old days you will regularly be topping up your battery.

The liquid in your Maintenance Free is a diluted mixture of sulphuric acid and water known as the electrolyte. The process turns into a gas mixture of oxygen and hydrogen and escapes from the battery, thus you will have to top the battery up.

 Apollo-Power Maintenance Free batteries; MF car battery a must for the busy driver

 In a conventional battery, (This is recognised by having open screw tops in each cell )  we then add “distilled” water to keep the battery topped up to the correct level.

Maintenance, free is known as MF batteries.Hence, such as Lucas batteries and Apollo-Power Maintenance Free batteries. For this reason, all, use a different type of lead alloy in the makeup of the cells, made of a calcium lead alloy known as calcium/calcium (C/C). MF car batteries also use calcium alloy of lead and not a lead antimony alloy as in the cheap batteries. So it reduces the gassing as in the typical lead acid battery. The fact that there is no water loss allows the battery to be sealed thus eliminating the need to have to top your battery up, a great benefit. You do not need to top the battery up, once fitted the battery will never require any maintenance. Thus it is an MF battery.

Great Looking Triumph Spitfire-Calls in at Pellon Tyres Halifax UK for some new tyres

Great Looking Triumph Spitfire

Great Looking Triumph Spitfire

Here at Pellon tyres in Halifax West Yorkshire UK.We are very proud of the different type of customers. Naturally, and their interesting cars that come to us to buy their car tyres.

Great Looking Triumph Spitfire

Great Looking Triumph Spitfire-It is always a pleasure to have a Triumph Spitfire into my garage for whatever the problem, this one had a new battery fitted. a 038 Tungstone battery.

  We sell and have available millions of sizes and types of car tyres. Hence, that are available on a daily basis to our customers.

The other day. We were honoured by the visit of a Great Looking Triumph Spitfire Car. Of course, for a set of new car tyres.

Great Looking Triumph Spitfire

Great Looking Triumph Spitfire-triumph Spitfire at Pellon tyres

This car reminded me of a friend of mine called Peter. When we were in our early twenties.Hence, we both worked at the same tyre company in a town called Dewsbury . Thus, in the North of England. We both had different types of cars on and off.For this reason, my favourite was my Triumph Spitfire. As expected, was a white colour. But Pete bought a splendid blue Triumph Stag.

Great Looking Triumph Spitfire

Unfortunately, after about three weeks. Peter blew up the Stags engine. “Peter was in tears”.However, after a few phone calls (non-internet in those days).Of course, he found a garage in Leeds who could repair the engine at a reasonable price. In those days, we received a bonus for each car tyre that we fitted. So the new engine took some saving up for.

Pete had to get the car to Leeds, so we borrowed a trailer from a friend that owned Plant hire business and buy all of his car tyres from us. We loaded the car onto the flat trailer and headed for Leeds. The A62 was very quiet that Saturday morning but unbeknown to Peter the pin connecting the trailer to the tyre van came out and the Stag and trailer went crashing into a nearby field and was duly written off, what a horror story, one I will never forget, certainly Pete won’t.

Peter is now the owner of a successful car tyre outlet in Huddersfield but we still have a laugh about the incident.

GOLF BATTERIES ONLINE-Where Golfers Go Wrong with the care of their Buggy batteries?

 Post Updated 20th Dec 2013

Golf batteries online;You must charge your Golf Batteries ??

Golfers have big problems when they buy their golf batteries online. Many golfers think that their golf batteries should last for ever, my opinion is that they should treat golf

GOLF BATTERIES ONLINE

GOLF BATTERIES ONLINE;Golf buggies all lined up before the start of a new golfing day, batteries charged up and ready to go.

batteries as throw away items. I think that you should purchase new batteries every two years, and throw your old ones away, recycle of course. Golf batteries do a very hard job during the golf season, and are often mistreated by the golfers. The

golf batteries online  are not charged up enough at regular intervals and are very often forgotten about after a game of golf, instead of been put to be charged up.

The other problem we find is that the golfer will purchase the incorrect type of battery , they will buy a “GEL” type instead of an “AGM”. These two types of batteries look alike but they are not the same and require different types of chargers. The incorrect chargers will result in a shorter life for your golf batteries and also premature damage.

Golfers can totally dis-charge their batteries and the battery will recover without damage to the cells on recharging, even if you use“GEL” or “AGM” batteries. One of the problems that we come across from golfers is that when they buy their golf batteries online  are not big enough for the job. Especially places like the foot hills of the Pennines were the golf courses are very steep and so the golfers are going to need the next size golf battery up. Also the size of the course, some are bigger than others. It does not take much figuring that you may need a more powerful Lucas Golf Batteries  for the larger courses. If you can not fit a larger Lucas Golf Batteries UK then I recommend that you take two fully charged batteries with you and use one as a back up. They can easily afford two batteries by saving money when they buy their golf batteries online.


GEL or AGM golf batteries?

 As I have stated earlier “GEL” and “AGM” golf batteries need different kinds of chargers and it is important that you stay with the same type of battery as when the trolley or buggy was bought, golfers seem go for a cheap battery online and go for the AGM battery ,when a GEL battery which will cost more, is the right battery for them, and possibly damaging the battery with the incorrect charger.

Finally to conclude it is important to look after the golf battery in the dormant season (this is the thing that causes the most problems) after a round of golf I recommend that the battery be fully chargedand kept in this condition for the non playing period, this includes holidays and the Winter months.

Recycling Car Batteries- Lead Acid batteries are 95% recycled an excellent record

Recycling Car Batteries

Recycling Car Batteries is the way forward

There is no doubt that one of most successful outcomes of the “green revolution” is the fact that we recycle almost all our old car batteries, this also includes truck batteries and other lead acid battery products.

Because of the nature of lead acid batteries. Hence, they come under the control of waste regulations. Therefore, this means that companies that sell and supply batteries.Thus, have to hold a “waste transfer note” and are regulated by the relevant authorities.As a result, I believe that this is standard practice across the developed World. We transport the old car batteries to our local Recycling Car Batteries Waste facility.

Recycling Car Batteries

For this reason, this is in Leeds (UK). They then transfer them in larger quantities hence, to the Recycling Car Batteries facility. Naturally to a  battery company such as Exide batteries. Who then, carry out the process. Thus, of turning the old batteries into brand new car batteries. All this is completed, in one continuous process.

The car batteries are first washed and purged of the old acid. They then completely crush the whole batteries and begin to separate all the broken parts, this includes the plastic casings and lead plates, all the time this is going along a conveyor belt to the next stage.

The parts are all separated and fall into relevant containers. Naturally, Is of mixed colours. Hence, the process is mixed with new black plastic.All the new batteries have black casings; this is why most Car Batteries Online are now a black The lead is also remixed with a quantity of new lead. Hence, to make the Recycling Car Batteries lead plates. And a new car battery is born from the Recycling Car Batteries that went in at the beginning of the process.

Recycling Car Batteries

This quest for re-cycling is a great success story for a greener product so much so that an American company has bought out on of Britains largest battery suppliers just to get its hands on the scrap batteries. 

Re-cycling car batteries the new greener way forward

Lead Acid Auto Batteries-will Not Store for very long without regular charging?

Lead Acid Auto Batteries

You must not store discharged Lead Acid Auto Batteries

Lead acid batteries were a great invention; they have been going strong for over 130 years. Although they may be under threat from today’s lithium-ion batteries, I believe that they hear to stay even much longer, with petrol and electric cars driving side by side. The lead acid batteries have supplied us with Cheap Batteries for the last 60 years, with mass production (mainly from the East and China) lowering the cost of motoring. Customers were able to buy batteries online through the internet.

The advanced battery has been durable and dependable when it is also used correctly. The discharge rate is amongst the lowest in the world and is capable of high discharge rates while

Lead Acid Batteries

Lead Acid Batteries-Smart chargers are now more affordable to buy to keep your battery in tip-top condition throughout the winter period.

Delivering bursts of energy that are capable of starting your car engine on a cold morning.

The big problem occurs when you store your lead acid battery in a “DISCHARGED CONDITION”. The 12 Volt Battery will never re-charge again. The battery has a limited number of fully discharged cycles and will only take a couple of deep discharges. The electrolyte in the battery can easily spill, causing environmental damage if spilt.

Lead Acid Auto Batteries

We have a customer in Lancashire in the UK who has been using cheap car batteries to start large electric generators that are transported, on site. The batteries have been used to start the generators and charged by an alternator when it is running similar to the way a car works.

But when the batteries are left unused

But when the batteries are left stood and unused. Hence, for perhaps 2 or 3 months. Therefore, allows the batteries to discharge totally.Eventually, deteriorate until they can no longer be used. Thus,    the company then wanted to change the batteries under warranty?. This problem will also happen to a battery that is left unused, in a car for long periods. As a result, without been charged.Therefore, the lead-acid car battery has to to be charged fully, at all times. 

Then be tested at regular intervals. Hence, to maintain the charge otherwise, the battery will quickly deteriorate and fail. Even in the warranty period. This procedure also applies to other uses of lead acid batteries. Including, AGM golf batteries, motorcycle batteries and Leisure Batteries all of which, should all be fully charged . These days you can buy a smart charger that will keep your battery in a good state of charge over the winter period, or any other time when the battery is dormant.

Electric Cars More dangerous-China says that the EV-Battery driven cars may be more “Harmful to your Health”.

Electric Cars More dangerous; Power stations not the battery powered cars

Electric Cars More dangerous; A pollution study in China has come to the conclusion. That battery drove cars to cause more pollution than conventionally fuelled vehicles because the electricity used to charge the cars is so-called “Dirty” fuel because the power stations rely on fossil fuels such as coal and gas, to power them.

The study was carried out in no less than 34 cities through out China.

People who are conducting this research are led by Professor Cherry a leading scientist in this field, who was helped by Chinese under graduates. He compared the particulate matters that cause the pollution which is similar to the test carried out on our cars in the UK on an “MOT TEST” on electric battery drove cars to that in petrol driven vehicles.He conducted the tests in China.  Because, believe it or not, they love electric battery driven cars and cycles and have probably the biggest percentage of battery-powered vehicles in the World. In fact, Chinese battery used cars outnumber regular fueled 12 Volt Battery vehicles by about 2 to 1.

The Police operate many of these cars, post, and local government. It has always been my opinion that Governments have gone about the green effect problem the wrong way. They should have sorted the power stations problem out, long ago. Man of the power plants in the world is fuelled, from fuels such as coal and gas. But instead, the power operators chose to hammer the poor motorists. This was done with the costs and by the look of this report to no avail. We are still polluting the Planet and its citizens with countries like China burning 85% of electricity from coal.

To conclude it is a fact that regular petrol which has driven vehicles with modern emission methods are cleaner than electric battery operated cars, and that  Electric Cars More dangerous

Battery powered cars like this police car are now common in Chinese cities

What’s your opinion??

“They found that the electricity generated to power electric cars caused more particulate matter Car Pollution  than that caused by an equivalent number of petrol driven vehicles. There was no Advantages of Electric Cars.

Particulate matter comes from the combustion of fossil fuels and includes acids, organic chemicals, metals, and soil or dust particles.

Professor Cherry said: ‘An implicit assumption has been that air quality and health impacts are lower for electric cars than for conventional vehicles”…
