Hi everyone,
we are looking at purchasing a repco car battery and have been advised that they are manufactured by Century batteries and assume they will be of good quality.Has anyone had experience with Repco Batteries?
Many thanks
Happy Travels

Repco batteries are at the cheaper end of the market (especially with racq discount) but I have bought three of them over time and they performed good. Bob

Definitely made by Century. You can see it on the label. I have had two and they have performed quite well, lasting beyond the 2 years they suggest. Just bought a third last week to replace one of them. No NRMA discounts or savings on batteries at Repco.

I had one fitted to a car 4 years ago, died in less than 3 months. Rang Repco, don't have one in our town. They delivered a replacement to my door and it's been in the car for nearly 4 years now. So I guess that is pretty good service.

Not all Repco batteries are Century. You must look for made in Australia on the battery!
My understanding is that Repco/Century batteries are normal Century, not cheap end units.

Sue & Shaun

I Brought a Repco deep cycle battery to run my Fridge, I got a bit over 3 years out of it and I am hard on batteries often running it past 50 precent,. I was happy with it and will be buying another one before my next trip.

Cheers

A google on Century Batteries I found this as part of their history

1970's

A Century manufacturing plant was established at Wacol in Queensland. Century helped set up a battery factory in Indonesia with a minor shareholding interest.

At the end of the 1970s, Century was taken over by Repco Limited.

As a sign of changing times, Century's hard-rubber container manufacturing plant was closed.
