VARTA® SLI Range
The Right Choice For Non-Start-Stop Systems
Conventional batteries, i.e flooded lead-acid batteries, are the most common battery type. This technology is often referred to as SLI, named after what used to be the battery’s main purpose in a car: Starting, Lighting, Ignition.
The Solid Choice For Entry Level Start-Stop Systems
Entry level start-stop systems are usually equipped with an EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery), suitable for vehicles without regenerative braking. It’s outperformed only by the AGM to increase fuel savings, reduce emissions and increase the reliability of the vehicles comfort functions.
The VARTA® EFB fits vehicles with higher than normal energy demands. So if you’re looking for a battery with extended cycle life compared to a conventional battery, the VARTA® EFB is the right choice.
- 2x cycle life compared to conventional batteries when used on start-stop vehicles
- Ready for entry level start-stop systems
- Engineered to the highest European standards
Ready for entry level start-stop systems.
Patented PowerFrame grid for reliable starting power, fast recharge and corrosion resistance.
Unparalleled Performance For Start-Stop Systems
We consider the VARTA® AGM as the mandatory replacement for any vehicles equipped with an AGM battery (remember, an AGM battery must always be replaced with an AGM).
- 3x cycle life compared to conventional batteries when used on start-stop vehicles

Driving & Accelerating
An advanced energy management system decouples the alternator during acceleration and under normal driving conditions. This means more of the engine's power is available to the wheels. The alternator is only recoupled again when the battery's state of charge falls below a predefined threshold.
Battery is being discharged and charged and must supply all electronic devices on its own.
Regenerative braking partially allows the vehicle's kinetic energy to be converted into electrical energy, which is then fed back into the battery.
The battery needs to be recharged quickly and have sufficient capacity for the additional energy. The battery must be capable of functioning at a lower state of charge.
Stop & Engine Off
When the vehicle comes to a stop, the start-stop system switches off the engine.
Even when discharged, the battery must still supply the starter motor generator with sufficient starting power to start the engine again.
