But hang on, why are there two? Both of them will fit the vehicle and do the job, so what’s the difference?
Well essentially it all boils down to starting power, warranty length, and price.
Century Hi Performance batteries is the base level range when it comes to car batteries. They offer starting power comparable to the original equipment battery that came fitted to your vehicle from the factory, along with the reserve capacity and ampere hours required to run the standard equipment your vehicle came with, and a comprehensive 30 month warranty.
Now, the Century Ultra Hi Performance range is a step above. It has higher starting power, along with increased reserve capacity and ampere hour ratings, and a boost in warranty to 40 months.
Understandably, there is a price difference between these two different tiers. So, do you pay more and go for the higher power battery, or save a bit of money and go for this one which will still do the job? The choice is up to you – but let me pose one additional question to you.
The Century Ultra Hi Performance range are more powerful batteries with a longer warranty. The prices of these batteries differ depending on where you are located in Australia, but if we take the recommended retail price on both of these here in Brisbane, and then calculate the cost per month over the warranty periods… the Century Ultra Hi Performance battery works out to be the most economical choice over the duration of its lifespan.
So, if you want the very best starting battery money can buy, and one which will continue to perform for the longest period of time – Century’s Ultra Hi Performance range is for you. But if the upfront cost savings matter more, then Century’s Hi Performance range is still a dependable choice which will do an excellent job.
Whichever way you go, you’re backed by Australia’s oldest and most recognised battery brand, with a network of over 7000 resellers across the country.
