Product information

Your Volkswagen Genuine Starter Battery supplies precisely the quantity of energy that your Volkswagen needs – in any situation. For environmentally friendly functions like the start-stop system and for more convenience due to auxiliary heating, radio and everything that makes your journey even more pleasant.

Your Benefits

  • Custom-fit.
    Supplies precisely the quantity of energy that your Volkswagen needs.
  • More performance.
    Thanks to higher-than-average lead content and high-quality materials.
  • Constant energy.
    Low self-discharge over the entire lifecycle.

8 things you are sure not to have known about your battery.

Your battery needs to be changed from time to time. Reason: Whenever the battery discharges, lead sulphate crystals, which reduce the electricity flow in the long term, form on the battery's lead plates. The more lead sulphate crystals have formed on the plate surfaces, the less capacity the battery has.

Long idle times, many short journeys: When it is time for a change depends on many factors. As a general rule, however, you should have your battery checked every four years. Like this, you will be able to rely on it at all times.

Safe for you yourself and your Volkswagen: Let trained specialists change your battery. Ultimately, many things need to be taken into account here: Battery acid is highly corrosive, escaped gases may explode. Disposal of battery requires special handling and an incorrectly fitted battery will damage your Volkswagen.

Many Volkswagens have a battery energy management. Among other things, it detects the state of the battery and controls the vehicle’s energy management. That works only if the battery is matched exactly to the vehicle and the system recognises it via a code. Otherwise, an unnecessary load may be placed on the battery or it may be over-discharged. This may give rise to permanent damage.

  • Improper usage of the batteries (e.g. using it as a power supply for any external devices)
  • Any tampering with circuitry by unauthorised personnel

Full power for the environment.

Want to do something for the environment? Many Volkswagen models will help you here with functions like the start-stop system or brake energy regeneration, recuperation, for short. Prerequisite: a strong starter battery.

Recuperation.

Regenerates your brake energy.

When you slow down or brake, a part of your Volkswagen’s kinetic energy is normally lost. A part of this energy is recovered through recuperation: It intentionally draws upon the alternator more strongly in this phase, thereby supplying the battery with more energy. The alternator converts the kinetic energy into electricity – like a bicycle dynamo. When the vehicle is accelerating, the alternator is drawn upon less or not at all. Reason: The vehicle now uses the energy that the battery has previously stored. That saves fuel and emissions.

Start-stop system.

Saves fuel whenever traffic lights are red.

The start-stop system automatically switches the engine off and back on when you take your foot off the clutch or brake or depress it again. This enables you to consume less fuel in urban driving. Prerequisite: a battery that is particularly cycle-proof – i.e. remains efficient even with frequent charging and discharging.
