The Volvo is a special Swedish car that makes use of advanced safety and environmentally conscious concepts to bring progressive designs to its range of sedans and SUVs such as the handsome S90 and elegant XC60.

Among their innovations is the Volvo Auto Start Stop system which pauses the work of the engine when you stop at traffic lights to help you reduce ownership costs through fuel efficiency and reduce the impact of wasteful carbon dioxide generated while idling.

However, whenever a car engine is stopped, electrical generation is also paused until the car engine restarts again. So while you sit in the car enjoying the cool air from the air-con system, music from your radio, and if it is night time, the headlights need to shine bright as well, all this workload is passed to the car starter battery, which in the past is used just for one purpose, to start the car.

This places extra demands on the car battery which needs to provide power, and after that still be able to restart the car engine again so that you can drive off from the lights after they turn green.

Car batteries have improved over time to increase convenience (when they went maintenance free) and meet with the extra demands placed on them by the Auto Start Stop from Volvo.

The Enhanced Flooded Battery or EFB type of car battery was designed for this specific purpose in mind and is recommended for cars with Auto Start Stop technology built into them.
