Battery World helps drivers charge ahead

Call outs for flat car batteries surged during the pandemic as vehicles were left idle, and now with winter among us, cars are at greater risk of battery failure.

At colder temperatures, a battery’s ability to provide sufficient power to start and run a vehicle is reduced.

While you might be saving petrol by leaving your car unused, you’re actually reducing your battery’s performance and causing premature battery failure. Make an effort not to have a ‘set and forget’ mindset and become accustomed to monitoring your battery – an excellent way to do so is by getting a battery monitor.

The Century BM12V Battery Monitor is the easiest way to keep track of your battery’s state of charge and your vehicle’s starting and charging systems. The BM12V helps prevent vehicle breakdown by transmitting real time battery data to your smartphone. Easy to set up push notifications will warn you about low battery voltage and record your battery’s daily voltage levels to help identify potential issues. Through the App you are able to run vehicle crank tests and automatically record your trip duration.

Backed with a 24-month warranty, the BM12V can be used for cars, 4x4s, trucks, caravans, motorcycles, marine and watercrafts, and lawn and garden maintenance vehicles.

If you are in need of a charger, Century’s 12V 12A Battery Charger will charge 12V conventional lead acid batteries in cars, 4x4s and SUVs, lawn and garden equipment, trucks, caravans and RVs and marine vehicles. This charger incorporates a unique and patented rejuvenation technology and high voltage equalising and peak pulse reconditioning to repair heavily discharged batteries and will activate from as low as 3V. Other inclusions include eco-power mode, for ultra-low power consumption, and safety timers, to detect faults and prevent overcharging.
