Summary of Duracell Range
The Duracell Starter, built to the most modern standards, offers an optimal combination of price and performance and is the obvious choice for customers who demand an excellent product for a super price. In this respect, Duracell Starter is the ideal solution - Reliable power for every engine start, completely maintenance free by means of modern full calcium technology, and the highest safety standards. The 4-chamber leak protection feature ensures no leakage of acid if the battery is exposed to vibration, maximum safety once installed via the central venting system and an integral flame arrestor to protect against external ignition. Clear product part numbering, including EN/SAE Cold cranking values and UK part numbering and a range of 12 battery types from 42Ah up to 95Ah demonstrate the universal suitability of this high value battery.
The Duracell Advanced is the embodiment of the Duracell Automotive brand quality! This power source meets the highest demands of leading vehicle manufacturers, so it is the ideal battery for the modern car. Its construction combines full calcium technology for improved starting power, with the highest possible safety via the double lid. This battery lid ensures the acid is fully contained even if the battery is tipped up or rolls over. Additional features include improved protection against external ignition, anti static buildup protection, and dual option remote venting. Ideal for modern SUV's. Duracell Advanced offers optimized cold cranking values, robust cyclic capability and is completely maintenance free. 20 battery types give almost complete range cover for all European and Asian vehicles.
The Duracell Extreme is built for use in environmentally friendly cars which incorporate a stop-start function. The EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery) is used primarily in medium, small cars and LCV that have only basic stop-start features. The AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) battery is mainly used on medium and executive/luxury vehicles, where more complex stop-start functions together with brake energy recuperation are standard. The Duracell Extreme premium products meet the demands of leading car manufacturers, and with a range of five types from 60Ah to 92Ah are the first choice for fuel efficient cars.
In order to perform daily in trucks, buses, agricultural and construction machinery, batteries have to be made out of something special!

The complete construction is based on absolute robustness. The SHD versions offer the highest safety features such as central venting and safety plugs. In addition, the 145/180/225Ah batteries feature the centrally vented 4-chamber flat lid, to prevent electrolyte leakage, which incorporates an integral flame arrester for additional security.
