Battery testing in real-life-situationsBy testing our batteries in "real-life situations," we can consistently develop long-lasting, high-quality automotive batteries to meet the daily demands of your driving. We perform extensive tests, i.e. fleet testing on taxis, trucks and patrol cars under the most challenging circumstances in Las Vegas (heat!), Barcelona, Hannover and at the polar circle in Europe (cold!). To give you an impression please read our description of the Las Vegas fleet testing as an example.
Las Vegas taxi testing – real performance for the real worldTo ensure that we make a battery to meet the daily demands of your driving, we put our long-life automotive batteries to the test--in taxis in the desert heat of the Las Vegas strip!
Why test in Las Vegas?
- The start and stop driving of taxi cab drivers--also tough on batteries--imitates the way most of us drive in real life.
- Heat is a battery's worst enemy.
- These batteries are tested round-the-clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Think of it! You drive to work and back, chauffeur the kids, run errands--in all kinds of weather on all kinds of roads. A lot of start and stop driving! Since 1989, more than 2,000 of our batteries have been on duty in taxicabs 'round the clock. After more than 110 million fleet miles, we've discovered that our long-life batteries far outlast our nearest competitor.
