BATTERY DIAGNOSTICS & NEW CAR BATTERY REPLACEMENT SERVICE
The battery in your car is the single source of energy for all the electrical components in your vehicle. Many people think that the car battery is only used to start the car, but this is a misconception. Yes, it's true that one of the main functions of the battery is to provide energy to the starter and ignition, but all of the other electrical equipment in your car relies on the battery as well.
A Vehicle Battery Has Several Important Functions
Providing power to the starter motor, ignition system, fuel system and other electrical devices
Providing power to electronic components like radios, clocks, door locks, alarms, when the vehicle is switched off
When the engine starts running, the charging system takes over to provide electricity to the various vehicle electrical systems. The battery cable terminals connect the battery to the electrical system.
The battery also works as a stabiliser for the entire electrical system of your vehicle. To achieve optimal performance and avoid possible damage to your vehicle’s electrical system, you need to keep your battery in good condition. The following procedures will help to ensure your battery is maintained in good condition:
- Checking the alternator belt tension
- Checking the wear of the alternator belt
- Checking the electrolyte level in your battery
- Tightening loose clamps and terminals
- Removing any visible corrosion

HiTech Car Battery Range
The Atomic series that embraces the entire popular car and 4WD applications, now uses the EXG Technology*. This has elevated it into an accessible expanded calcium battery and further strengthened its claim as the leading low maintenance battery by improving its already proven performance.
By using EXG Technology, the HiTech car battery Series has upgraded CCA ratings, widening the gap in performance between it and all competitor batteries for the same vehicle application. The HiTech Series is covered by up to 30 months full warranty, setting it in a class above its nearest competitor.
The warranty for batteries, like for most manufactured goods, is a warranty against faulty materials and workmanship. Proof of purchase is needed to claim on warranty. If this is not available, the warranty period will be determined from the date code stamped on the casing. As soon as it is determined that the battery is defective and is within its specified warranty, it will be replaced with an equivalent battery free of charge.
The guarantee is void if the battery has been subjected to overcharging, abuse, faulty vehicle charging system, neglect, failure to maintain acid (water) levels, tampering of markings or broken or removed vent plugs. Failure to use distilled water when topping up a battery will also void warranty. Installing a battery that has a lower capacity than is originally specified by the manufacturer of the equipment will likewise void warranty. Warranty periods indicated are for private use only. A 12-month warranty applies for commercial use. A 6-month warranty applies for taxi use.
