Choosing the Right 4X4 Cranking Battery
Tough batteries for 4WDs and Trucks. New Battery Range for Baintech
Not to be confused with an auxiliary battery – your starting battery or cranking battery is measured by Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) – which means the amount of power the battery can deliver to start your vehicles engine. The higher the CCA rating the better suited for 4X4 and Truck use vs. a small four-cylinder sedan.
How to choose the right battery for your 4X4
For something like a turbo-diesel – you’d look for a battery with a CCA rating upwards of 600 Cold Cranking Amps, this provides enough of an energy supply to turn over a large engine for those few starting seconds.
- Correct CCA for your vehicle size (Check with our expert team)
- Size / space of your battery tray / under bonnet space
