VARTA® Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Calculator


The right battery is essential in unlocking the full potential of any commercial mining vehicle. Through minimising any premature electrical storage failures a high-quality, long-lasting battery maximises your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Modern battery technologies require a higher investment than conventional batteries, but they reduce breakdowns and enable the use of fuel-saving technologies. They also support a longer battery life cycle. Because of this, the subsequent costs and potential savings need to be considered in the purchase decision.

With the launch of the VARTA ProMotive range of premium commercial batteries, Clarios has restructured its range of heavy-duty batteries for the mining industry. VARTA ProMotive AGM and VARTA ProMotive EFB are the ideal batteries for commercial vehicles with extensive equipment and high power consumption found in modern mining vehicles.

VARTA Promotive range of batteries can help your business achieve optimum TCO while avoiding breakdown costs through its unrivalled features:

  • Superior acid circulation for a longer cycle life: The unique acid circulator is a VARTA benchmark technology that guarantees better acid circulation and keeps charge acceptance ant highest levels.
  • Energy anywhere: VARTA Promotive will reliably power all electric devices and equipment on-board even when the vehicle stands still, providing advanced hoteling function. Back on the road, it’s fully recharged.
  • EFB enhanced flooded technology for extra reliability: VARTA enhanced flooded battery technology with consistently high performance for highest heavy commercial requirements.
  • Reliable starting power, fast recharge and corrosion resistance: a unique feature of the VARTA AGM battery is the PowerFrame® design which uses the PowerFrame grid on both the positive and negative plates optimised for maximum performance that ensures excellent starting characteristics even with low charge levels.
  • Made in Germany: Assembled to highest European standards for best in class manufacturing quality.
  • Highest charge acceptance for an extended cycle life. Extended cycle life compared with a conventional battery.
