Australian made Century batteries are built tough. They boast a range of features, which have been engineered to suit our conditions. They deliver what Australian motorists demand: long life and superior reliability.
The Century Difference
Built strong to survive harsh conditions, Century batteries are comprised of a range of components, which are specifically designed to improve durability and life-span. These components include:
1. Hybrid Plate Group
Enhances strength, lessens plate growth and improves battery-life.
2. Radial Grid Design
Reduces electrical resistance for greater starting-power and quicker charging.
3. Longer Life Plates
Tougher cast construction combined with paste coating of the positive grid enhances the battery’s life-span.
4. Centre Lug
Central placement enhances current flow for better resistance to vibrations.
5. Superior Plate Separation
State-of-the-art envelope separator material delivers enhanced puncture resistance and short circuit protection.
6. Built-In Water Indicator
Displays your battery’s state of charge.
7. Hinged Vent Cover
Maximises the life of your battery by allowing easy access for maintenance.
8. Mud Rack Design
Minimises short-circuits and vibration by using special support racks for plates.
Made for tough Australian conditions
Australia’s climate can be harsh. Blistering hot temperatures, unpredictable weather, and rough roads can all be very hard on your battery. If your battery’s internal components aren’t designed to handle these tough conditions, they can deteriorate over time, leading to early battery failure.
Unfortunately many batteries available today are made for milder overseas environments. These other batteries focus on giving a higher starting power at the expense of critical design features. And this makes them less durable.
Century batteries are designed and made right here in Australia for Australian conditions. They’re made tough to withstand hot climate, extreme weather, and other conditions which can lead to battery failure.
They boast a range of leading design features, including durable hardwearing internal components and some of the most advanced battery materials available. Combined, these elements deliver what motorists really want – long life and superior reliability.
Australian made Century Batteries feature a Made in Australia logo on the label.

Century Ultra Hi and Hi Performance batteries both incorporate revolutionary SmartDrive™ technology, which was designed to meet the demands of next generation petrol, diesel and gas powered vehicles.
When fitted to a vehicle with a Regulated Charge Control System, these batteries can lower fuel consumption, as well as vehicle carbon emissions by up to 2%.
SmartDrive™ batteries can be used in a wide range of vehicles, including those with standard charging systems. They deliver superior starting benefits, while also complementing your vehicle’s overall performance.
