The Bosch ST Hightec AGM – Batteries for Start-Stop vehicles

ST Hightec batteries carry AGM technology (Absorbent Glass Mat), one of the top battery technologies in the market today. Thanks to its dynamic recharging capability with up to 4 times the number of discharge/charge cycles compared to conventional starter batteries – the Bosch ST Hightec with AGM technology meets the toughest requirements for today’s driving conditions.

There has been a significant increase in the use of start-stop systems over recent years and the technology is no longer just for prestigious vehicles. Trends towards fuel savings and emission reductions are why there is now a significant number of ‘mass market’ vehicles on the road with start-stop systems. Vehicles with start-stop systems need a battery which has a high deep cycle resistance and optimal charge acceptance. Failure to install the correct battery can result in a vehicle system breakdown. An AGM battery should never be replaced with a conventional battery.
