EFB Car Battery for Start-Stop Engines

EFB Start Stop Car Battery for Mazda SkyActiv iStop Subaru Auto Start Stop by FastFix Car Battery Replacement Service Singapre


What is a EFB Car Battery?

Car Batteries with Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB) technology are built for higher performance and reliability than conventional flooded batteries and can support entry-level start-stop functionality.

For cars with Start-Stop engines, EFB technology provides enhanced starting power for reliable performance throughout the day and can power the ever-increasing electrical demands of many vehicles.

EFB technology provides double the cyclic stability of standard lead acid or maintenance free car batteries, which allows for a longer lifespan of recovering from deep discharges.  In a vehicle with start-stop engine (eg. Mazda SkyActiv iStop or Subaru Auto Start Stop), when the engine is ‘off’, EFB allows the vehicle’s electrical devices to stay powered on, while ensuring the engine will consistently restart in a fraction of a second.

EFB Applications

Electronic features such as DVD players, GPS, air conditioners and audio systems all add to the demand on a battery.  EFB technology provides a more durable and reliable battery to power your vehicle’s electronics and give you extra peace of mind.   Higher-quality materials extend battery life and minimize vibration so that you can depend on your battery even longer.

EFB technology is built to serve vehicles with basic start-stop functionality and keep electrical devices running when the engine is off.  Start-stop vehicle technology automatically shuts off the engine when your vehicle stops, such as at a traffic light or in stop-and-go traffic, and restarts it quickly and quietly when the clutch is engaged or the brake pedal is released. When the engine is off, the battery is the sole source of power to all the car’s electrical devices, such as air conditioning, the radio and the navigation system.

In order to power electrical loads during engine-off periods and to support a high number of starts per trip, these vehicles need technology like the EFB with superior cycling capability, charge acceptance and the ability to operate at a low state of charge.

EFB Construction

Enhanced Flooded Car Batteries such as those from Amaron & Hoppecke's are made with stronger, more durable materials than traditional batteries for longer life and reliability. Components are packed tightly into the case, creating a custom fit, which gives the battery vibration resistance.

EFB technology contains a veil-like material called a scrim. The scrim is made of a porous plastic material that helps support the positive paste on the grid when the battery is charged and discharged. Without a scrim and separator, the paste can weaken, fall off, and drop beneath the grids into the acid.  Having this scrim surrounding the separator reinforces the active materials and offers longer life under severe discharging conditions.

EFB technology is designed to avoid early battery failure from acid stratification by using the acceleration and deceleration of the vehicle to actively mix the acid solution. This unique mixing system gives the battery a higher level of reliability.

    5 star review  My car couldn't start this morning and I need to send my son for his vaccination. A friend of my recommended Fastfix to me. I called the line and Bobby explained to me the price and the model of battery. He sent me a confirmation message to explain that if he did not find anything wrong with my battery, I would only be charged a cheaper jumpstart and onsite fee. This helped me to feel assured. When Bobby arrived, he was friendly, helpful and quick. He not only helped me with the battery, but also perform a check on the alternator. This was beyond his scope of work and it helped me greatly! I would strongly recommend Fastfix as I had an excellent experience with Fastfix as the owner Bobby gave me a clear price quote over the phone. No hidden charges or surprises. The price is transparent and clear. He was patient and explained to me clearly what he was doing as he was changing the battery. This helped me to feel confident that he was doing the right thing. He even help to ensure my alternator is in good condition. Thank you very much for coming to my help and making it a pleasant experience. Hope that your business continues to prosper!

    5 star review  I was not able to start the engine in the petrol station (jump start cable not selling) and called towing services to jump start my car as I was in urgent for night work and i drove the car back to my carpark yesterday night. Today, i was not able to start engine again and called fastfix as reccomended by my sister who found it online. Bobby showed me my car battery was total flat through his measurement tool and explain and share his knowledge on how to maintain the longetivity of the car battery. On site installation and battery cost are reasonable for a 24/7 battery recovery services. I would have save up the towing fee and approach fastfix if i have knew them earlier. Thumb up!

    5 star review  What surprised me about the service from the very beginning was the professionalism of the staff manning the hotline. When the lady picked up the call, I thought that it was a pre-recorded message but I soon realised that an actual person was speaking to me. She was very eloquent and patient in listening to the problem I was facing with my car and gave me sound advice on what I could do and expect. Then, she gave me an ETA and asked if I would like to proceed. This was followed up with an SMS confirmation for me to acknowledge. When the mechanic (Bobby) came, he was very polite and patient in his explanation and did the necessary tests before proceeding with the job. He gave me an overview of the battery while going about his work. I was at ease throughout the entire process and the changing process took about 15 minutes. From the call to the point of completion, it took less than 45 minutes. Well done, Fast Fix! Will definitely spread the word and I will give you guys a call again should my battery fail on me a couple of years down the road!
