My Truck Driver “Braaied” the Truck Battery

“My driver called me and advised that the truck’s battery was badly burnt.  I thought ‘no ways, how is that possible?’ He sent photos and I couldn’t understand how a battery could be that badly damaged to the extent that the battery casing and cables had all melted. In my anger of course I said, ‘You had better have been braaing some good steak!’. 

On a serious note, this is a problem and it is important for customers to be aware that looking after the battery is a critical responsibility which falls to them. In this article I would like to point out a few things that can assist our customers to avoid similar occurrences, albeit not as disastrous as ‘braaing the battery’.

Stop-start technology – make sure your battery keeps up

Stop-start technology – make sure your battery keeps up

Within the next few years, almost all newly-manufactured cars (90%) will have built-in functionality that can contribute to a cleaner environment.  Stop-start technology reduces fuel consumption and harmful emissions by reducing the amount of time the engine spends idling, especially when sitting in gridlocked traffic.  And idling is a huge waste of petrol (and money).  In the United States alone, idling can waste as much as 3.9 billion gallons of petrol.  Gains from the stop-start technology can be anywhere from 3 to 10 percent, potentially as high as 12 percent; the longer you sit, the more you gain.
