How to Charge a Bosch S4 005 Battery
Bosch Battery Types
Bosch batteries are divided into two groups according to their purpose: starter batteries and traction lighting batteries.
- Starter motors give a large current when the car engine starts.
- Traction lighting designed for long-term loads with a small current value. They are used exclusively on forklift trucks, boats, as a light source or for power supply of power units.
By voltage, batteries are divided into two types. 6 V and 12 V. They are designed as maintenance-free and low-maintenance (dry-charged configuration). Unlike the former, the latter add distilled water to the accumulator once a year. Both types require recharging, like any other rechargeable batteries.
Bosch Battery Warranty. 24 months from the date of sale. And for models with a capacity of more than 100 A / h. 12 months. The operating mode of such batteries is more stringent, because they are used on trucks. Therefore, the charging quality is exaggerated, including the reason for their series connection, in order to obtain a voltage of 24 volts. Because of this, the warranty periods of the batteries vary.
Bosch rechargeable batteries: features
Starter BOSCH batteries for cars, trucks and for motor vehicles are divided into three series:
- Bosch S. For cars;
- Bosch T. For use on trucks, buses, tractors and special equipment;
- Bosch M are installed on motorcycles, scooters, snowmobiles, ATVs and mini-tractors.
The line of batteries Bosch S6 AGM, Bosch S5 Silver Plus, Bosch S4 Silver, Bosch S3. Bosch S. Series starter batteries for use in passenger cars, SUVs and small commercial vehicles.
If we take the integral characteristics (capacity, inrush current, service life) of batteries that belong to the S3 series for 100%, then according to the same parameters the S4 series will have 115%, and the S5 series. 130%. Approximately the same ratio and price.
Rechargeable batteries with Asian power terminal blocks (JIS) and sizes are only available on the S4 and S3 series. The S6 and S5 series are intended only for use on vehicles with European standard sizes.
Technical features of BOSCH S5, S4, S3 series batteries
The PowerFrame used in batteries increases battery self-discharge resistance and resists corrosion. The asymmetric lattice structure and uneven distribution of lead increase battery life, as well as increase inrush current. This is a durable grill that consumes resources evenly and resists mechanical stress on the battery.
The battery cover has a double labyrinth and a membrane gas-permeable filter. They provide 100% battery life. The cover is airtight, does not allow electrolyte to pass through and vents gas into the vehicle’s ventilation system.
New technology for fastening contact terminal plates prevents battery loss of power, extends battery life, and improves battery design.
