The ‘Varta’ brand name stands for the highest-quality, cutting-edge technology and comprehensive battery know-how. Varta is the largest manufacturer of commercial vehicle batteries in Europe, and with its large range of products it offers the right battery for each vehicle. Varta has eight production sites, located in four European countries: Germany, France, Spain and the Czech Republic. We are now excited to announce that we are an official reseller of this quality reliable battery products in Ireland.
Be it technology, safety, service life or comfort, Varta combines all-round maximum performance with an extensive range of batteries for almost every make of commercial vehicle. No battery in the market place is more suited to coping with the demands of sophisticated electronics, such as smart-charging systems, engine management-systems, and a whole host of power-consuming accessories.
CO2 emission regulations increase the pressure on vehicle manufacturers. Fuel-saving functions such as mirror cams and passive boost systems reduce consumption and therefore CO2 emissions but at the same time, they drain the battery. These new powertrain technologies along with the constantly growing number of electronic devices and more overnight stays in the cabin with running parking heater or cooler mean that the battery needs to evolve as well. Some of the biggest vehicle manufacturers therefore reached out to VARTA with a request to collaborate on the development of a solution. Together they combined their know-how and experience in the field of passenger car AGM and truck batteries. This is how the new AGM battery for trucks and busses was developed.
The VARTA Promotive AGM ensures optimal Total Cost of Ownership for fleets and fulfils all OE requirements: -Cold cranking power -Cycling performance -Deep discharging capabilities -Vibration resistance -Charge acceptance.
VARTA Commercial Vehicle Batteries – Usable Energy
The battery onboard a commercial vehicle powers essential safety systems and many of the comfort / infotainment features. It’s important to know which battery technology to fit to which kind of vehicle, as there are now several different types available. This video explains in more detail, which type to consider for your vehicle. VARTA are the leading battery supplier to Vehicle Manufacturers as Original Equipment, so you can be sure you’re fitting the best quality available, trusted to power vehicles around the world.

Why VARTA ProMotive AGM technology is a must have for modern trucks 2021 / 2022
Modern heavy commercial vehicles feature an increasing number of telematics, fuel saving functions and comfort features. Systems like mirror cams, passive boost and fridges in the cabin all need to be powered even if the engine is not running. All the energy must be supplied by the battery then. As conventional batteries cannot handle this kind of strain, the experts at VARTA came up with a battery technology that has enough power for today’s and even future applications. That is how the VARTA ProMotive AGM was created.
There are six reasons to change from conventional heavy commercial batteries to AGM. Mounting flexibility and spillage The “Absorbent Glass Mat” or in short “AGM” soaks up the acid in the battery like a sponge. This makes the AGM maintenance-free and spill-proof and allows it to be placed in more enclosed or hard to reach areas. Durability, vibration, and shock resistance The design and the enhanced fixations at the bottom and at the wall of the container lead to improvements in shock and vibration resistance. Charging time Special electrochemical processes inside the battery lead to much better charge acceptance and faster recharge time. Compared to conventional batteries, AGM batteries can be fully recharged inside the vehicle. Depth of discharge AGM batteries can handle a high level of discharge (80%) ensuring a long lifetime while conventional batteries can be discharged by 20% to achieve similar battery life. A high depth of discharge means a high amount of energy is provided by the battery. This is ideal for vehicles with many power-hungry consumers. Temperature tolerance AGM batteries perform better in all temperatures and offer superior cold cranking power. Service life and self-discharge AGM batteries last longer than conventional lead acid batteries. They have a minimum level of self-discharge for maximum storage capabilities.

Being on the road consumes a lot of energy of the driver… and parking in rest areas consumes a lot of energy of the battery. If your truck has numerous electrical devices on board, and you also sleep several nights per week inside the cabin, you should look at one characteristic when choosing your battery: the technology the battery is built with. If you want to know why AGM and EFB battery technologies are ideal for modern trucks, this video above explains it.
