Understanding the Different Truck Battery Types

If you are looking for the best truck battery type to buy for your truck or light commercial vehicle, it is important to understand the types of batteries available. There exists a wide range of sealed batteries that are maintenance free, made for various 4×4 and commercial applications. Below are some of the unique features of the various battery types available.

Heavy commercial trucks should use the commercial sealed and maintenance free type of a truck battery. They are the most ideal batteries for such trucks as they are capable of producing the extra power for starting these heavy commercial vehicles. This range of batteries is also popular with most 4×4 vehicles as well as other agricultural and mining options. These batteries are great as they have several features that make them easy to use in their applications. They have flat tops which enable them to be used in their applications easily. They are made using a technology that is advanced which ensures that the battery does not require any top up for it to operate normally.

These batteries are the most ideal for heavy commercial vehicles that require real start current and they are able to have a longer life as they are supported by the Calcium technology. Calcium alloy has been proven to offer resistance to high heat damaging effects, corrosion and reducing water loss. Other features that make this range of battery the best include; instant starting due to its high cranking, carry handles to assure safe handling and an envelope of polypropylene which prevents shorting of inter cell to ensure a longer life.

The 86AX Heavy Commercial range of batteries can be used on trucks that are used for the heaviest commercial applications as they are the best suited for such applications. They are also made using the flat lid design and maintenance free making it the perfect product for heavy applications. They have several features that ensure that these batteries offer the best service to the users. They have a higher performance starting power, a higher reserve capacity and they come with vents that are easily accessible for easy maintenance.

The N50ZL product range of these batteries is another great battery to use for 4x4s and other commercial applications. They are also sealed and are maintenance free with the capability to produce a starting power that is always reliable even under rugged and harsh conditions. This product range has the following features; a no-vibe type of anchor bonding, a reserve capacity that is high, Easy fill vents for easy maintenance and a starting power that is high performing. They also have great carry handles that have a sure grip with a cover made from polypropylene that is durable.

All the above are some of the truck battery ranges available for sale. One chooses the battery that best fits their commercial applications depending on the amount of starting power required for the application they intend to use their trucks for. If one deals in heavy commercial and needs the real workhorse battery, then the 31-950 product range is the best as it was built tough to handle the applications that are deemed the heaviest.


roadside response customer reviews

I just want to thank you for getting to my house so fast. The car didn’t want to start this morning and I needed to get to work. The guy who changed the battery was real friendly and I was able to get to work almost on time (only 12 minutes late).

Lana Wilkinson

I wanted to drop a quick note to say that although Garry had to fight a lot of traffic to get to me he was very professional, friendly and helpful.

Thomas Do

I ran out of fuel on the way to work and Response came to the rescue, 1 hour in all that traffic was just amazing. Saved my day

Huyen A.

“What a great idea, I don’t drive far but to have Roadside Response available when I need it, awesome”

Rebecca T.

Keero was really helpful over the phone. He asked a couple of questions and we figured out straight away that the problem was most likely a dead battery. Phil was in the area and arrived in less than 40 minutes. Got a new battery and I was back up and running again. Thanks guys.

James Burrett

Thanks for the great service. I didn’t realise that getting a battery delivered and installed cost less than buying it in the shops. I’ll be telling all my mates about Roadside Response.
