All ACDelco SMF Batteries feature lead calcium expanded grids (Lead Calcium Technology) for improved resistance to corrosion, overcharging, gassing, water usage, self-discharge and thermal runaway, all of which limit battery life in conventional lead acid batteries.

ACDelco’s Sealed Maintenance Free (SMF) Batteries undergo some of the strictest quality assessment processes to ensure high quality and outstanding reliability. The new range of ACDelco AGM and EFB batteries feature key new technologies to meet the demanding requirements of modern vehicles with Stop/Start technology.

The introduction of “Power Frame” grids on some models, delivers even further improved performance compared to standard constructed products. With the ability to handle a greater depth of discharge, AGM and EFB batteries are also the right choice for high demand applications such as taxi’s, couriers and off-road vehicles.

R&J Batteries’ comprehensive range of DELKOR Maintenance-Free batteries is comprised of premium quality automotive starting/cranking batteries, available to suit all Australian, European, Asian and American vehicle applications.

The calcium-calcium sealed maintenance-free range uses a unique lead-calcium alloy to produce heavy duty stamped Powerframe® plates able to withstand the most arduous conditions.

Delkor’s silver-calcium range has the added benefit of using a lead-calcium-silver alloy that adds increased performance and durability, particularly in extreme applications or high temperatures.

The Delkor AGM range uses Absorbed Glass-Mat separators which reduce internal resistance for increased performance and durability. Featuring superior cranking power and higher reserve capacities combined with faster re-charge ability,  Delkor AGM batteries are ideal for all late model Stop-Start vehicles and high-end luxury European models. Delkor AGM batteries represent the ultimate in modern-day high-performance battery technology, are fully-sealed and will never leak or corrode under normal operating conditions.

Established more than 44 years ago, our Korean manufacturer of Predator Sealed Maintenance Free (SMF) batteries has worked closely with R&J Batteries to develop one of the most advanced and reliable SMF Batteries available today.

Predator batteries are produced in accordance with ISO9001, ISO14001 and TS16949. In addition the factory has the most stringent Quality Assurance process. We do not random-sample or batch test during production runs.

Instead every single battery is tested for performance, resistance, leakage and capacity output prior to leaving the production line.

Our Predator range features; Highest purity fine-grain lead, lead-calcium alloy, stamped full-frame grids, micro-fibre plate wrap to retain active material, envelope separators, polypropylene case, magic eye hydrometer, centered cast on straps and lock-bonding.

Odyssey Extreme Series batteries are made with 99.99% pure lead plates – not lead alloy. Pure lead plates can be made thinner so we can fit more of them in the battery. The increased plate surface area combined with the ultra-low resistance of pure lead provides phenomenal cranking power – up to twice as much as conventional batteries.

Like many popular spiral-wound batteries, ODYSSEY Extreme Series batteries employ dry cell Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) technology to contain acid, allowing the battery to be installed even on its side. But the densely packed flat plates in an ODYSSEY Extreme Series battery avoid the “dead space” between cylinders in a “six pack” design. The result is 15% more plate surface area — and that translates to more power!

The REDTOP® high-performance AGM battery is the ultimate starting battery designed to deliver the strongest five-second burst of ignition power for a reliable start-up every time.

The Redtop® will outperform and outlast traditional batteries in demanding cranking/starting applications. With unparalleled high-power delivery and extreme resistance to the most common causes of battery failure, the Redtop® is ideal for trucks, SUVs, hot rods, street cars and other applications that require a powerful starting battery.

With it’s patented spiralcell technology, optima batteries offer 15 times the vibration resistance and up to twice the life of ordinary batteries. The Optima® is like no other battery found in today’s market.

Optima’s unique spiralcell design offers the greatest technology in providing a strong and clean power source that far surpasses any of today’s flooded lead-acid batteries. With Optima under your hood, you can count on a longer lasting battery.
