Truck & Car Battery | ACDelco Advantage Battery

ACDelco Advantage Batteries feature an impact- and break-resistant plastic case for durability, including robust separator envelopes. These auto batteries have corrosion-resistant terminals and no-maintenance design. Integral gas separators and flame arrestor vents prevent possible damage from outside sparks. Premium technology in the metal alloys, chemicals and design combine to ensure long-life performance.


  • Overall terminal design minimizes acid leaks, seepage, corrosion and black post, which allows the terminal posts to stay clean and corrosion-free
  • Both positive and negative grids are Lead-Calcium alloy, maximizing corrosion resistance, increasing cycle life and reducing water consumption to improve battery durability
  • Premium alloys and high-density paste for improved performance
  • Envelope Separator design helps eliminate shorting and corrode-through to improve reliability and battery life. Sealed on three sides, the ACDelco Advantage Batteries separators are shaped like an envelope made of polyvinyl chloride. The Envelope Separators are puncture-resistant with a back web rib design to allow good electrolyte diffusion between the plates while preventing them from touching each other. This also improves acid circulation, allowing the battery to remain cooler, extending battery life.
  • Manufactured with dozens of quality control checks to provide ACDelco quality



Supplies the energy needed to start the engine, provides the current to operate the accessories when the vehicle is not running and protects the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) from high-voltage surges.

Did You Know?

Most vehicle breakdowns are due to one of five causes:

  • Out of gas
  • Stalled/Engine won’t start
  • Dead battery
  • Flat tire
  • Overheated engine

Most of these breakdowns can be avoided through the following measures:

  1. Periodic mechanical checkups, especially when engine stalling, hard starting or other such symptoms are occurring.
  2. Regular tire inspection to spot damage, unusual wear or under-inflation that can lead to a failure.
  3. Seasonal checks and preventive maintenance of the cooling system.
  4. Be sure the gas cap is on tight after filling up to safeguard against condensation in the tank. If moisture in the gas line freezes, the engine can stall.

Also, having a cellular phone or portable CB radio is of great benefit while traveling.

What It Does:

The Starting and Charging System starts the engine, maintains the battery’s charge and provides power to the electrical accessories while the engine is running.

Good Maintenance Practices:

  • Check the auto battery as part of regular vehicle maintenance.
  • Keep auto battery terminals clean and free of corrosion. To remove corrosion from terminals, use a terminal brush.
  • Check the alternator and make sure that it is not charging too high or low – if the alternator is not charging properly it will cause the battery to not charge correctly and cause deterioration.
  • Avoid exposing the auto battery to extreme heat whenever possible.
  • Turn off other electrical accessories (stereos, internal lights, etc.) as soon as they are no longer required to save electrical energy.

Signs of Wear & Troubleshooting:

Signs that a battery may need to be replaced are:

  • Engine will not crank
  • Battery runs down easily
  • Battery will not recharge
  • Corroded terminals
  • Cracked/broken cover or container
  • Frequent slow speed or short distance driving
  • Faulty battery connections
  • Low voltage/open circuit
  • Long-term vehicle storage
  • Frozen battery



What is more important, Cold Cranking Amps or Reserve Capacity?

  • The Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) test is the number of amps required to crank an engine for 30 seconds at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Due to lower-viscosity engine oils, gear- reduction starters and smaller engines, having the right amount of CCA is required, but not too much.
  • More CCA will not start your car faster. The Reserve Capacity test is the number of minutes that a battery will last with the headlights left on or at a 25-amp draw. Due to the increased number of electronics in a vehicle, having as much Reserve Capacity as possible is now more important than having the excessive CCA.

How can I tell how many Cold Cranking Amps my battery has?

  • Most battery manufacturers put the CCA rating right on the label of the battery.
  • Be careful when shopping for batteries as some manufacturers put on the label a reference to Cranking Amps (CA).
  • This is a reference to Cranking Amps. This test is done at 32 degrees Fahrenheit and not at 0 degrees Fahrenheit, like the Cold Cranking Amp (CCA) test.

How can I tell how much reserve capacity my battery has?

  • This should be on the label right under the CCA rating of the battery.

Does this battery perform well in cold weather?

  • It is important to have the right battery for your vehicle. Refer to OEM specifications in your Owner's Manual or an OEM-driven supplier such as ACDelco.

How long does this battery last without losing its charge?

  • All batteries need to be maintained. Parasitic drains in a vehicle can deplete a battery in 2 to 4 weeks. To be safe, vehicles should be started once a week or once every other week and idled for 5 minutes to ensure that the battery retains a reasonable state of charge.

What is the difference between an (Accessible) Maintenance-Free Battery and a Filler Cap Battery?

  • Batteries that are Accessible Maintenance-Free or Sealed Maintenance-Free have a Calcium Additive to the plate material inside the battery that helps to prevent the gassing off of electrolyte. These types of batteries should never need to have water added. Vent caps on these batteries should not be removed at any time as this breaks the seal and could allow seepage or water loss. Low electrolyte in these batteries is an indication of overcharging. Filler Cap batteries have an additive in them that requires the checking and refilling of the battery with distilled water.

If my car has a Start-Stop feature, does this affect what type of battery my car has?

  • In the case of GM vehicles, AGM batteries are required for Start-Stop vehicles. Use of a flooded battery will result in the life only being about 4 to 6 months. Most other vehicle manufacturers are using AGM for these vehicles as well.
