Volkswagen AGM starter batteries: product test

With a start/stop system, it’s not only when you set off that you need to start the engine – it’s every time the vehicle stops for a period of time, for example when you hit a set of traffic lights or are in the filter lane. Moreover, the battery still has to supply all the electrical equipment in the car.

A conventional wet battery wouldn’t withstand this stress for very long. That’s why we install Volkswagen Genuine Start/Stop Batteries. They’ll win you over with their incredible cold start capabilities, long service life and an extremely low self-discharge rate.

Objective tester: The test was carried out by the independent battery test facility, “akkuteam Energietechnik GmbH”, which specialises in batteries and alternative power technology. The Fraunhofer Institute provided scientific support during the test.

Is our Genuine Part really better or is a battery from the free parts trade just as good? For the test, AGM batteries with a nominal capacity of 68 to 70 Ah produced by Volkswagen AG and a range of other brand manufacturers were purchased anonymously. According to the product label, the batteries from the open parts market were suitable for use in start/stop vehicles.

Three starter batteries from each producer were bought to make sure that the various tests were conducted under the same starting conditions.
