can istop battery replaced with non-istop battery? that the different between them? thanks for any comment, appreciate that.
The start-stop battery has a double load
The case is different for cars with start-stop technology. ... If the car is stationary at traffic lights with the engine stopped, electrical consumers such as lights, windshield wipers, radio or displays still need power. The load is increased by continuous discharge and charging.
Consequences of using a conventional car battery
A conventional starter battery cannot meet the demands of a vehicle with an automatic start-stop system. This is true both for cars with simple start-stop systems and EFB batteries as well as for vehicles with advanced start-stop systems.
Yet, special batteries are also required for cars equipped with Stop-Start, which are, unsurprisingly, more expensive and more powerful than contemporary standard types. However, if cars with Stop-Start capability are not fitted with the correct replacement batteries, the electrical system can be damaged .
Interesting facts about start-stop technology
Start-stop systems require a battery with modern technology, because normal starter batteries are not designed to meet the higher demands of these vehicles. For this reason, only EFB or AGM batteries should be installed in vehicles with automatic stop-start systems .
A. Stop-start technology is increasingly common, generally works well and helps to keep down fuel consumption and emissions. In addition, in many stop-start cars the battery has a higher capacity (so it takes longer to drain) and the starter motor is made more robust to cope with the extra demand.
