I have a Varta EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery) fitted to my J12 Qashqai. An EFB is a minimum spec battery required for today’s modern cars with Stop-Start technology. Cost approx. £100-£140?
The AGM batteries (Absorbent Glass Mat) are top-of-the-range and typically cost over £200. The one fitted by the RAC (Varta again) to my previous Qashqai retailed at approximately £245.
It would appear you should only change like-for-like (i.e. EFB for EFB) unless fitted by a specialist and re-programming maybe required - not really sure?
On average, EFB batteries provide up to 85,000 engine starts while standard wet-flooded batteries have a max of 30,000 engine starts. By approximation, EFB batteries provide up to 50,000 more engine starts than the standard flooded batteries.
Hence when using a start-stop system, it is evident that an EFB will have a far better duration than standard wet-flooded battery technology.
