What makes racing batteries so important?

The world of racing cars is becoming more and more rooted in technology and perfect engineering. Whether it’s the brute force approach taken by NASCAR, the need for long-life components in LMP-1 and other Endurance classes, or the intensely technical and precise components in a Formula 1 car, all of these rely on good batteries and electrical deployment to be successful. Here are just a few reasons racing batteries are vital and are likely to become more so in the future. Energy Deployment Systems One major part of the power units in modern racing cars is the electrical side of the power unit. Hybrids are becoming more and more common in a variety of racing series, and these hybrid cars [...]

How to properly maintain your battery’s terminals

Your battery's terminals can corrode over time. While a certain amount of corrosion is inevitable, there are ways that you can reduce the rate at which it occurs and improve the longevity of your battery. Here are a few tips: 1. Try to park out of the rain Moisture drives corrosion, which means that it's best to keep your car as dry as possible. If you are able to park in a parking garage or under an overhang, you should. Also, brush snow off of your vehicle before you bring it into a warm garage. 2. Use terminal covers Covering your terminals will keep water from getting on them, which can reduce corrosion and rust. You should make sure that [...]

What Are Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) Batteries?

AGM stands for absorbent glass mat, and this technology is used in all of our batteries. While this technology has been around since the 1980s, we have perfected it, which will help to improve the durability of your battery. In addition, there are important advantages of absorbent glass mat batteries over other lead-acid batteries. Here's what makes AGM battery products unique: 1. AGM batteries have a low level of internal resistance Internal resistance reduces the amount of electricity that can be generated by a battery, and AGM batteries are designed to have lower resistance. You can be sure that our batteries will be able to deliver large amounts of current at any time, which is due to the fact that [...]
