Clarios Introduces EFB Start Stop Battery Technology

A new technology is making recharging a vehicle much easier for drivers. This technology is known as PowerFrame(r) grid technology. EFB start stop batteries are perfect for vehicles without regenerative braking systems, long engine starts and extended off times, and multiple electronic components. They provide two-times the deep-cycling performance of traditional batteries and are ideal for vehicles with demanding driving schedules and multiple electronic components.

PowerFrame(r) grid technology

Clarios has perfected the PowerFrame grid technology for start stop batteries for the last 15 years and is proud to introduce this new battery design to its automotive and transportation customers. This innovative technology uses a radial design to maximize the flow of electrons in the battery, allowing up to 60% more electrical flow. And because of this new grid technology, power consumption and greenhouse gases are reduced by 20%.

The PowerFrame(r) grid technology used by Delkor is patented and offers increased corrosion resistance and structural strength. The patented technology has been tested for strength and durability and is superior to conventional grid design. It also utilizes a patented stamping process to create unique positive plate grids. This process reduces stress on the metal and ensures that the grids will continue to perform for many years.

Delkor EFB batteries are twice as long-lasting as conventional batteries. And they are especially suitable for start stop vehicles, as they don’t have a regenerative braking system. The performance of Delkor EFB batteries is consistently high, which makes them an excellent choice for start stop vehicles. This technology also offers high reliability, making it a reliable and flexible choice for start stop batteries.

Johnson Controls is a multinational company with operations worldwide. The company’s car batteries include conventional and advanced batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles. The company’s Dynamic Trio range will feature two cutting-edge technologies, the Dynamic Trio and PowerFrame(r) grid technology. These batteries provide the highest level of energy performance for both start stop and non-start stop vehicles.

Exide’s Carbon Boost 2.0 is a unique recipe for carbon additives on the negative plates of Start-Stop vehicles. Exide designed the product to meet the strictest electrical requirements of Start-Stop systems. It incorporates the company’s innovative LifeGrid(r) grid technology and high-capillarity glass mat separators to ensure maximum electrolyte volume. And thanks to Carbon Boost 2.0’s enhanced surface structure, the company has managed to minimize the buildup of lead sulfate deposits, which reduce the battery’s ability to charge back efficiently.

The grid wires’ cross-sections may be oval, square, rectangular, or diamond-shaped. However, the shape of the grid wire must provide good paste adhesion. In addition, grid wires may be substantially oval, rectangular, diamond, or rhomboid-shaped. In some cases, the grid wires are octagonal, square, or round.

EFB and AGM batteries are required for increasingly complex vehicles. In some cases, AGM batteries are required, and OE parts must be used. The PowerFrame(r) grid technology for start stop batteries is an increasingly popular option, as it enables start-stop vehicles to be used more frequently. VARTA’s ProMotive battery is designed for end-of-frame installation and provides exceptional starting power, premium on-board technology, and long-distance endurance.

The new CSIRO Ultrabattery hybrid battery features an asymmetric ultracapacitor, which enhances the power of the battery during recharging. The technology claims to achieve up to 70 percent cost reduction compared to current lead acid batteries for start-stop applications. The CSIRO Ultrabattery is already used in a Honda Insight HEV and is being tested for use in micro-hybrid cars.
