Lithium-Ion Electric car batteries

This is news to me but possibly good news, I wonder if in the future the battery market will be like it is today. With many manufacturers selling to many dealers as a World wide

Nissan Leaf Batteries

Hydrogen cells are one of the competitors to the Nissan Leaf Batteries lithium-Ion cars of the future

market, or will the car makers try to keep the cheapest car batteries to themselves.

Certainly according to this report the customers want to buy their own Nissan Leaf Batteries and source them at the best price when they need replacing, at the moment i can not think past the post and can not imagine what the size of the battery market will be  when the cars become second and third hand.

At the moment we have a vibrant battery market, with many companies large and small having a share in the market ,but will this always be the case ?. Lithium-Ion batteries are now looking like the battery that will be used as the Nissan Leaf Batteries , along with other technologies, such as Hydrogen fuel calls. Another big development is with the Start-Stop car battery. You may ask How Does Stop Start Work?. This operates on the what you could call standard type vehicles and works by the cars engine being switched off when the car stop and re-starting when the car starts again saving fuel in the process. These batteries are 12 Volt Battery technology and are lead acid batteries and AGM batteries, this is because of the higher charging cycles that are available with different materials used in the making of the plates.

universities including the large battery makers such as Johnson Controls the owners of Bosch Batteries ? in my opinion in order for us to help save the planet through less emissions, the Advantages of Electric Cars  are very few  at the moment, they should be made to sell at a price that we all can afford and not the privileged few . With more of these electric cars on the road we would then see the testing and results for more distance travelled at a faster pace, and towns and cities would be installing more and more charging points, i travel in the UK

I agree with a greener planet. But I think that the car part of the equation.Therefore, is at a too a higher cost at the moment. Hence, a better idea would to put solar panels on all roofs.Even here in the UK. Perhaps this would be too easy ?

I have solar panels at it saves me a fortune and creates electricity into the grid.Of course, or is it because that if we all had Free Solar Panels.Then there would not be any need for all the electric companies. Hence, that we have at the moment.Of course, the green issue is all about making more money. Of course, for the large greedy companies. Also to round off ,the Ford motor company has started to experiment with solar panels fitted to their car roofs, that is well worth watching out for.

Vintage Car Batteries

Some of our battery customers leave things right up to the last minute. Most of these are people who are just going of on there holidays in a caravan or motorhome, only to find out that their batteries are flat, just before they set off on there journey.

We manage to get a battery off to them most times but I have admit not all the time,(couriers can be next to useless).

However last week we received a call from a guy who lived in a nice part of the country at the far end of the Humber Bridge, in a little town called Barton on Humber. The weather was lovely and sunny, but when he tried to start his vintage car, the batteries were flat and indeed the old  Car Batteries were completely de-funked.

He needed 2×421 vintage hard rubber Classic Car Batteries and fast. Barton is not too far from Halifax and so I sent him the batteries by express couriers, (namely ME). It was a beautiful sunny day,(for a change) and so I delivered his Vintage Batteries, just to the Lincolnshire end of the Bridge.

Customer received his 2x 6 volt 421 Vintage Car Batteries and was highly delighted with the service.

I was also pleased with my work and enjoyed a wonderful day looking at the wonderfully picturesque Humber Bridge.

Ford Escort RS1600-My First Dream Car

Post Updated 10th Jan 2014

The Ford Escort RS1600 would be the one for me,(but it never happened) ?

The first time that I came across this car, was when I worked for one of the Goodyear tyres outlets Tyreservices GB. The company no longer exists, but in the sixties and seventies the company was thriving as this was the time that the tyre manufactures were expanding at a rapid rate, and buying out tyre retail depots all over the UK, to secure a top place for their tyre products.

Whole companies and single tyre depots were bought out by the tyre giants, in order for them to have a full coverage of depots in Great Britain. I remember getting promoted to Branch Manager and it was then that I became interested in car rallying.Ford Escort RS1600

Tyreservices began sponsoring a female driver called Chrissie Ashford in the late 70,s…  She was from North Yorkshire not too far from my depot in Huddersfield . All the depots received a memo asking for volunteers to fit the Goodyear rally tyres for Chrissie and a few other competitors at the local rallies including stages of the Mintex rally staged in Yorkshire.


I thought this was a great opportunity for me to gain some knowledge and so I became involved and this is where I began to be interested in the Ford Escort RS 1600, because this was the car that I would be following around the rallies. I believe that the car was then known as the Ford Escort Mexico and in 1970 the car became available to the public as a road going version called the Ford Escort Mexico. I can remember that we still had some working “woollen mills” in the area and the Mexicos were often bought by the rich sons of the wealthy mill owners, so we changed few tyres on these cars, Goodyears of course.

These Ford Escort cars were tremendous to watch

The road version of these classic racers the Mexico were miles away from my budget, as a branch manager we were poorly paid and could not afford Ford Escort RS1600one of these cars even the second hand car cost more than I could afford and in fact kept there prices high, I remember that I had to make do with yet another Mini.

The Mexico was capable of doing 0 to 60 in about 10.5 seconds and would cost around the £1100 brand new, far out of my reach, you must not forget that in those days there were no easy payment deals like today,s car buying public. This car did not have many competitors either, it was virtually in a class of its own. Even today one of these in good condition would

Ford Escort RS1600 on goodyear tyres

Ford Escort RS 2000 Rally Spec

cost you anything up to £20,000.00, (that’s how good they were). This car was tremendous to watch on the road and in the rallies.

The tyres were mainly different sizes of wide 13 inch, the road tyres were different to the rally tyres and the battery was the first type of heavy duty with the “bolt on terminals” part number085 battery(still available today)

For far more information…

“The engine however, was the most important part of the Ford Escort RS1600 as it was the first block that Cosworth – at the time, a very small company – had produced. ‘Cosseh’ as it became known as in later years, bored the engine of the Twin Cam out to 16 valves and dubbed it the BDA (Belt Drive A-Type). Cosworth used a clogged belt drive to spin the cams in time, and combined this with twice the number of valves. The result was the 1.6 litre engine having an increased output from 109 to 120 bhp for street use, and the RS1600 cemented its place in the hearts of driving purists over the world thanks to its light body, sharp handling and decent amount of power”… .

This was a great part of my life as I also met my wife, who also worked for Tyreservices GB at the Dewsbury Branch.

038 Lucas Battery- And New Tyres for This Wolsley Elf Mini

 038 Lucas Battery and Tyres that we fitted  were 145X10

I am totally amazed at the number of classic cars that are still on the today I thought that the time I reached my sixties, all these cars would have disappeared, but how wrong can you 038 Lucas Batteryget.

When Spring arrives all these old cars come out of their garages and are proudly driven about by their owners. This is when we see these cars in my garage, not a week will go by without us seen at least two classic cars having new tyres fitted or a new battery fitted or delivered from our internet site.

038 Lucas Battery

Triumph Spitfires are fitted with 038 Lucas Battery

The most popular battery this year has been the 038 Lucas Battery. This is the battery that was the big seller in the late sixties and early seventies, it fitted most British Leyland cars including the Wolsley Mini as  well as Vauxhalls and Hillmans. The 038 Lucas Battery fitted such cars as all the Mini Cars and 1100,s Vauxhall Vivas, Hillman Imps and many more. Many other models including the Triumph Spitfires also used the 038 Lucas Battery, making the battery very popular, even today.

Many of the older models were fitted with a 6volt battery system, which we still sell today. There is only one company that makes the 6 volt casings and this is in South Africa. They export this battery to all over the World where it is labelled up by many companies including Tungstone batteries and Numax batteries.

Back to tyres ?

However this week we were honored to have a Rolls Royce Wraith and this Mini visit us the Mini was owned by a local retired business man from Sowerby up in the hills next to Halifax, who called in to buy two front and have the wheel alignment corrected.

Anyhow the tyres were fitted and the wheel alignment carried out and of the car went. I cant wait for next week to see what the next classic car comes through the doors.

096 New Car Battery -Check Your Alternator as well as your old battery

096 New Car Battery and Car Alternators

If your car requires another 096 New Car Battery. Hence, it is well worth having your cars dynamo checked out. We here at  have fitted thousands of car batteries . Only for the car

When having a new 096 New Car Battery fitted always have the dynamo checked out, or you may be storing trouble for yourself in the future, with a further battery failure.

owners to return in a week or two . Stating that theirs  is “not working very well”. Only to find out after a test. That it is not working correctly.
When you have a new one fitted . Then, you should ask yourself a few questions?.

096 New Car Battery

A simple voltmeter like this is a handy tool to have, and will show how many volts that your battery has in it.

Has yours  failed? Are you absolutely certain that it isn’t something else . Such as the  starter?. Determining which part has failed . Therefore, is essential toward avoiding unnecessarily costs . By

replacing something that hasn’t even really failed. Although it is usually the case the faulty alternator can also have damaged your 096 New Car Battery. Let’s take a look at some steps you can take to determine that your has failed and has not in fact,  packed in?.

If you own an voltage testing machine, you can test to see whether your car’s Alternator  is charging correctly. For most people this isn’t practical, as few motorists own such an expensive piece of equipment. For everyone else, there is a practical way for you to easily check to see if yours  is working properly:

096 New Car Battery

1: Connect a volt meter to your 096 New Car Battery. These can only cost about £6 from E-Bay and are a useful tool to own.

2: Start your car

3: Observe the voltage output on the volt meter so that you can make an accurate determination.

If there is an increase in voltage when you start your car, then your alternator is more than likely working just fine. It will be most Likely that  your battery is the culprit; check the 096 New Car Battery itself and the connections to make a final determination.096 New Car Battery

If there is no increase in voltage, you are likely looking at having to replace your alternator.

The next step, of course, is to determine whether you will replace the alternator yourself or have someone else do the job. Some things to keep in mind as you weigh your options include:

If you trust your vehicle to a local service centre or better still a Unipart Car Care Centre (UCCC), what will the total cost of the work be including the part and labour? Will there be a guarantee? From a Unipart centre they will certainly be a guarantee, on most parts this will be 12 months on electrical goods and 2 years on other parts.

If you decide to do the work yourself, do you have all the tools on hand to get the work done? Do you own a repair manual? Do you want to purchase a new alternator or will a re-conditioned unit do the job? Another option would be to buy one from the local scrap yard, but you could be in a similar position six months down the road.

096 New Car Battery

Your choices today are much greater than they were say ten years ago, before internet shopping became a strong factor in bringing down the price of high auto parts prices. Several online wholesalers, including the Andrew Pages of this world,This way of buying is fine but to-days cars are becoming much more refined and complicated and even we at PellonAutocentre in Halifax make mistakes and order the wrong ones.
In my opinion it would be best to leave the job to the experts and visit your local Unipart Car Care Centre, who will give you a FREE battery test and also knowing that the work carried out will be guaranteed throughout the UK, to give you a great peace of mind.
