Top Reasons Why Car Batteries Fail Prematurely

2019-02-13T11:58:50+11:00April 2nd, 2017|Battery History, News, R & J Batteries|

Top Reasons for Premature Car Battery Failure The leading causes of flat or dead batteries. Your battery is the lifeblood of your car, truck, boat and bus. The battery is responsible for powering mechanical and electrical components responsible for your vehicles overall performance. Without a healthy battery, your engine may not start and electrical accessories might not function adequately, if at all. A batteries lifespan varies depending on several factors including how often it’s used, the overall condition of your vehicle, battery quality and the battery’s suitability to the application. The real concern is when or if you have a relatively new battery that starts showing signs of trouble. We have outlined some of the most common issues associated with battery failure in relatively new batteries! Too Little, Too Often Cars are a fantastic way to get around, however, batteries can struggle when used frequently for short trips. This use can deplete the batteries level of charge. Cranking the engine to start your car draws hundreds of amps from your battery. Once the engine is running the alternator begins charging the battery. Car batteries accept charge at a relatively slow rate, so you may need to drive for some time to fully recharge/ replace the power used to start the engine. Frequent stop-starts or short trips could be stopping your vehicle before the alternator has had a chance to recharge the battery. This can result in a drained battery which is similar to a drained [...]

Tips to Extend Car Battery Life

2019-02-19T11:09:52+11:00March 27th, 2017|News, R & J Batteries|

Tips to Extend Car Battery Life It might not be a surprise that the leading cause of vehicle breakdowns is a dead battery. To avoid the inconvenience of a breakdown, one of the best things you can do is take care of your battery. We have outlined some top tips to help you get the most from your battery. Inspect Your Battery Regularly The type of battery in your car will determine how often it should be checked. If you're in doubt, ask your local R&J Batteries expert to check or maintain your battery. Low-Maintenance Car Batteries Low maintenance batteries can be identified by their removable caps and they should be checked every month or two for: Signs of acid or corrosion build-up around the terminals, and Adequate electrolyte levels Maintaining electrolyte levels is important. Low electrolyte levels reduce the battery's performance and life, too much can cause corrosion on terminals and brackets. If there is evident corrosion build up, wash it away with hot water, rinse thoroughly, dry and apply a lubricant spray (such as WD40, CRC or specialist battery terminal spray) for protection. Maintenance-Free Car Batteries Maintenance-free batteries are identified by their flush sealed top and often have a built-in hydrometer or state-of-charge indicator. Check the Battery's indicator colour to determine it's level of charge. Green indicates a healthy state of charge; black, clear or red indicate possible problems which should be investigated by a battery specialist. Due to their design, terminals [...]

Clipsal 500

2017-05-24T14:03:01+10:00March 3rd, 2013|Celebrations, News, Racing|

Clipsal 500 2013 R&J Batteries once again made the annual pilgrimage to the Adelaide Clipsal 500 in March. All up we had 23 staff and clients attend this outstanding event. R&J had their usual grand stand seats that they’ve occupied since the event first ran, right on the main straight opposite the pits and main big screen. We were also fortunate enough to get entrance into the Fuchs corporate tent, which was a welcome relief for those who were able to get in, as the weather was incredibly hot, so a bit of air-conditioning and a cold drink was gratefully accepted. The R&J Development series car ran mid field for both races, although we got some great TV coverage in race 1, as Jeff Emery started side by side on the grid with the legendary Casey Stoner. Already looking forward to 2014!

Fullriver DCG Gel Batteries

2013-07-09T23:47:28+10:00November 7th, 2012|Fullriver, News|

Long renowned for producing some of the best deep cycle batteries in the world, Fullriver have expanded their range of Sealed Lead Acid batteries to now include a full gel range. As the Australasian/Oceania distributor, R&J Batteries are pleased to be now able to offer this new product throughout Australia. A gel battery is similar in construction to a traditional AGM battery, but instead of the electrolyte being suspending in a glass mat, silica is added to make it a firmer gel type substance. Whilst the amp hour rating between like for like sized AMG and gel varies in rating, the advantage of a gel battery over an AGM battery are several including… Excellent slow discharge rates Greater efficiency in a very wide temperature ranges, particularly higher ambient temperatures Longer life span, particularly in harsher cycling applications like mobility Better recovery, particularly from lower depth of discharge The Fullriver gel range also shares many features of the features found in their AGM range including Fully sealed, non-spillable case Does not give off gas Calcium lead plates Designed in accordance with IEC 60254-1 Maintenance free High cycle life Low cost per cycle = lower total cost of ownership Rugged construction to be both shock and vibration resistant To learn more about any of the Fullriver range, contact your nearest R&J Batteries store or distributor on 1300 769 282 or visit www.rjbatt.com.au
