CARBON BOOST® 2.0
WITHOUT CARBON BOOST The plates are covered with sulfate
WITH CARBON BOOST Sulfate is reduced due to Carbon Boost technology
Carbon Boost® is Exide s unique recipe for carbon additives on the negative plates that was first developed for Exide s Start-Stop OEM batteries. Continuous investments in R&D, tighter emissions regulations and the increasing demands from the OEMs in regards to charge acceptance and energy availability have lead to the development of the new Carbon Boost 2.0. Carbon Boost 2.0 uses improved carbon additives, combining an optimized surface structure with significantly better conductivity. This enables a better current flow within the battery, resulting in unmatched charge acceptance. It also helps to dissolve the lead sulfate deposits that usually consolidate on a battery s discharged negative plates, reducing its ability to charge back efficiently.
6 X 2.16 VOLTS = 12.84 VOLTS
Combination of cells Each cell produces 2.16 volts, regardless of the plate size and quality. Modern automotive batteries consist of six cells connected in series to produce a total of 12.84 volts (6V batteries still exist but only on older vehicles).
Exide s new EFB batteries feature Carbon Boost 2.0. with exceptional dynamic charge acceptance, offering important benefits for drivers, especially in intensive urban driving conditions.
Benefits 75% more energy recovered in the same amount of time compared to older EFB
Optimized regenerative braking functionality - ensuring fuel savings and reduction of CO2 emissions
Longer overall lifespan
Carbon Boost was first introduced in the aftermarket Premium range in 2014. The new Carbon Boost 2.0. brings performance to the next level.
Benefits Faster recharging (2 × times faster than other conventional batteries)
Longer lifespan (higher average state-of-charge throughout battery life)
