Higher Capacity Battery Requirements For European Tractors

2017-05-30T15:29:47+00:00 May 30th, 2017|HardCore, Technical Bulletin, Tractor|

TECHNICAL BULLETIN [RJTB1] Published by R & J Batteries, May 2017 Higher Capacity Battery Requirements For European Tractors When supplying replacement batteries for later model tractors and harvesters please check the CCA and/or Ah rating of the original factory-installed battery, as well as casing dimensions, polarity, etc. Many newer models, particularly those manufactured in Europe, have original batteries which are much higher capacity than traditional versions, up to 30% higher CCAs in some cases. The use of standard capacity batteries will increase the risk of premature battery failure or warranty claim, and may even contribute to component (eg. starter motor) damage in some instances. Aside from genuine replacements and specialist brands like Varta & Caterpillar, R&J Batteries are the only major supplier with these higher-spec’ batteries readily available in most cases. The following tractor brands all have multiple models which require higher capacity batteries:   Contact R & J Batteries for more information /www.rjbatt.com.au  /1300 769 282 Download RJBT01

Top Reasons Why Car Batteries Fail Prematurely

2017-05-24T14:02:59+00:00 April 2nd, 2017|Battery History, News, R & J Batteries|

Your car's battery is the lifeblood for many mechanical and electrical components that are responsible for its overall performance. When something goes wrong with your battery, your car is not going anywhere fast - if at all. Without a healthy battery, your car’s engine may not start, and most electrical accessories will not function adequately, if at all. It goes without saying that when there is a problem in this area, things can get stressful. The lifespan of a car battery can vary depending on several factors including how often it’s used, overall vehicle condition, battery quality and the battery’s suitability to the application. The real concern is if you have a relatively new battery that starts showing signs of trouble. This post will outline some of the most common issues associated with a relatively new(ish) battery that fails to deliver consistent, reliable starting.  Too Little, Too Often Cars are a fantastic way to get around, however their convenience makes it a little too appealing to drive when you could have walked. Car batteries struggle with frequent use in the form of short trips which can eventually deplete the level of charge. Cranking the engine to start your car can draw hundreds of amps from your battery. Once the engine is running the alternator begins charging the battery, but car batteries only accept charge at a relatively slow rate, so you may need to drive for some time to fully recharge / replace all the power used to start the [...]

Tips on Properly Comparing Flooded LEAD-ACID BATTERIES

2017-05-24T14:02:59+00:00 March 31st, 2017|R & J Batteries, Tips, U.S Batteries, Uncategorized|

Tips on Properly Comparing Flooded Lead-Acid Batteries Compare the Right Data When Shopping for New Batteries By Fred Wehmeyer, Senior Vice President/Engineering U.S. Battery Manufacturing When it comes time to purchase new batteries for your golf car fleet, most fleet managers want to get the most for their money. It’s common practice to compare various batteries to see which will give them the best balance of longevity and reliability that fits their budget. With so many choices and information, it’s important to make sure you’re comparing “apples-to-apples.” The problem with comparing batteries is that manufacturers don’t always use the same testing conditions, so the ratings and advertised data on one battery may not be the same on another. To make a proper comparison, the first step is to make sure the batteries have the same internal construction (Flooded vs AGM vs Gel). You also need to make sure that the voltage output is the same and that the capacity ratings are similar. This is where it can get confusing for many golf car owners and fleet managers. Battery manufacturers don’t always use the same testing criteria for ratings and cycle life data. For example, two similar batteries can show cycle life data that may not be an accurate comparison because they are often based on selective data from the manufacturer. Comparing Depth of Discharge Typically, cycle life data is obtained by discharging the battery to a fixed depth of discharge (DOD) until failure. DOD is the percentage of amp-hour (AH) [...]

Tips to Extend Car Battery Life

2017-05-24T14:02:59+00:00 March 27th, 2017|News, R & J Batteries|

It might not surprise you to hear that the number one cause of vehicle breakdowns is a dead battery. If you want to avoid the inconvenience of unexpected breakdowns, then one of the best things that you can do is to take care of your battery. This post hopes to outline some top tips that will help you get the most out of your car battery so that you don’t end up stranded and waiting for a jump start. Inspect Your Battery Regularly The type of battery fitted to your car will determine how often it should be checked. Batteries with removable caps are referred to as “Low-maintenance” batteries, and this type should be checked every month or two for signs of acid or corrosion build-up around the terminals, and for adequate electrolyte levels. Maintaining correct electrolyte levels is important – too little and battery performance and life are diminished, too much and excessive corrosion of terminals and brackets may result. If in doubt, ask your local mechanic, auto electrician or R&J Batteries store to check and top up for you. If corrosion build up on terminals is evident, wash away with hot water and rinse thoroughly then dry, and finally apply a lubricant spray such as WD40, CRC, etc., or even a specialist battery terminal spray for maximum protection. Maintenance-free car batteries are becoming increasingly common, and these are easily identified by their flush, sealed top. Sealed Maintenance-free batteries often have a built-in hydrometer or state-of-charge indicator. Simply check [...]
