In an automotive world soon to be populated with fuel-saving start/stop systems, the duties of a traditional light-vehicle battery will become more rigorous and require further innovations to keep pace with the extra power demand.
So says Paul Cheeseman, vice president-global engineering and research, at battery maker Exide Technologies.
“Your battery will no longer be starting your car once or twice per day. With stop/start systems, it will go from performing about 5,000 starts in its lifetime to 50,000 starts,” he tells WardsAuto in an interview. “It will start your car many more times a day, so (the technology) has to be different.”
