Bosch Enhances Passenger Vehicle Battery Program
Dec. 22, 2015—Robert Bosch LLC relaunched its passenger vehicle battery program with coverage for domestic, Asian and European vehicles.
The four lines include flooded lead acid batteries S3, S4 and S5, and the premium S6 High-Performance Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) battery.
“AGM technology yields a battery with high-energy capacity and has the power to handle multiple demands at once; plus it has the endurance to perform at a high level over a sustained period of time,” said Marcel Ayasse, senior product manager, batteries and battery chargers, Robert Bosch LLC, Automotive Aftermarket North America. “As more and more vehicles come factory-equipped with an AGM battery, they need to be replaced with an AGM and not a standard flooded lead acid battery.”
The Bosch Battery program has been upgraded to include:
- New easy-to-read labels that align with the Bosch global packaging design to ensure consistency across all Bosch product lines.
- Handles for better grip and easy installation (on most new batteries).
- Flushed and sealed battery cover on most new units to minimize the risk of acid spill and to help prevent terminal post corrosion.
- Full-frame technology on the lead grids for a more robust and reliable design. The flow-optimized grid design guarantees high starting power and a long service life. A special alloy ensures high corrosion resistance and significantly lower self-discharge.
