Importance of the correct Car battery
There are a lot of factors to consider when owning a car. One of which is the car battery. This car component is very important since it is the power source of your car’s electrical circuit. The car battery is also the starting point of running your car after you turn the key in the ignition.
The car battery life should always be checked prior to running your car. Choosing the right kind of battery and knowing when replacement should be done should be one’s priority.
What is a Start-stop battery technology?
Start-stop technology is also called an idle stop-start system(ISS). This kind of technology is commonly seen in Mazda 3 Stop-start vehicles. Idle stop-start vehicles can not use conventional flooded batteries since they are not suitable for modern car engine systems.
This innovative technology is a fuel-saving feature that helps reduce fuel consumption and emission by turning the engine off while the vehicle is on stop. This usually happens when a traffic light is on stop mode,
Modern vehicles that have start-stop technology can detect whether a car is moving or not and subsequently shuts the engine off to reduce emissions and save fuel.
This is one of the special features that modern cars nowadays have that is beneficial for the environment and the consumer as well. This allows the car to provide better fuel efficiency and engine output.
Conventional batteries versus stop-start batteries
A conventional starter battery is designed to provide a high short energy boost for starting up the engine. In contrast, modern start-stop car batteries can discharge and charge many times.
This means that even if the engine is stopped and the battery is idle, the start-stop car batteries still supply power to the auxiliary systems (lights, air conditioning, and music). There is also a braking regeneration system, which stores energy during braking so that it can be used repeatedly in the future.
Mazda 3 Stop-start
Mazda 3 is a modern type of vehicle that utilizes an ISS system. Mazda’s i-Stop System Requires a Very Special Car Battery. Mazda 3 operates through petrol, diesel, and SkyActiv with iStop technology.
Mazda 3 has been upgraded throughout the years to suit the needs of the consumers and to be able to deliver its best performance through the latest technology. Although some battery failures occurred during the process which required dealer visits to upgrade the charging algorithm or turn off the feature as well as replace the battery.
Now its features are at its best and it continues to evolve not just to meet the demands but also to become a more environmentally friendly vehicle.
Different kinds of stop-start car batteries
There are different kinds of car batteries have emerged due to technological advances. For cars such as Mazda 3, a special car battery is recommended for its function to be maximized.
Basic ISS systems use EFB whilst advanced ISS vehicles use AGM batteries.
AGM batteries ( Absorbent Glass Mat)
AGM batteries were originally built for high-power vehicles such as the ones used in the military. Through the years it evolved its usage for modern cars with specialized technology such as Mazda 3.
The AGM batteries carry their charge from soaked sponges coated on the lead plates. The Glass mats make it easier to send power from an AGM battery. This feature makes it easier for this kind of car battery to be recharged.
They incorporate a low-pressure valve that vents to protect the battery from rupture in the case of fault or over-charging.
This kind of battery provides the greatest hybrid battery solution for modern automobiles by combining cranking power and deep cycle capability.
EFB batteries ( enhanced flooded battery)
Enhanced Flooded Batteries (EFB) are suitable for start-stop cars or cars with demanding driving requirements.
They have up to twice the level of cyclic endurance than conventional batteries and deliver consistently high performance to fulfill the demands of modern cars.
Take note that An ISS vehicle with an enhanced flooded battery (EFB) must be replaced with an EFB or upgraded to an ISS AGM battery
A vehicle that came with an ISS AGM battery must be replaced with an ISS AGM battery – it can not be downgraded to ISS EFB
