Koba is quality from Korea
Acme Batteries Ltd was formed in 2011 by Lance Johnston, who has long been involved in the motor and marine trades in New Zealand. Lance has also had a strong involvement in motor sport, both as a competitor and supporter.
Acme Batteries was a business opportunity that was created to service the motor industry, with a new emphasis on service, value for customers, and an opportunity to deal with fellow owner operators, who understands the challenges of owning a business in New Zealand. Our aim is to provide the best service to our customers and in turn enable them to offer quality products and service to their customers.
Lance and his wife Rowena run Acme Batteries on a day-to-day basis, and are supported by a dedicated and experienced team specialising in handling distribution, sales and technical inquires.
As New Zealand distributors of Koba Batteries, Lance says that it is important that customers receive a product that is made of excellent quality, is super reliable and affordable. The ever-increasing range of quality Korean-made Koba batteries was a logical choice with this in mind.
Acme batteries supplies an increasing range of car, marine, commercial, mower, motorcycle and deep cycle batteries.
The strong points of Koba’s maintenance-free car batteries are minimised self-discharge and maximised heat resistance, by adapting a special calcium-alloy and an X-frame. The centre lug and lowresistance isolation plates make for better ignition power and lifespan.
“As the market changes we are able to provide suitable choices for most applications,” says Lance. “The demands on batteries have increased due to the now common electronic features in vehicles such as audio systems, Bluetooth devices, GPS, DVD players and heated seats.
“Our range of maintenance-free and AGM batteries are a great choice for these vehicles designed to cope with the large power demands.”
The commercial range of Koba batteries provides a choice for customers with both heavy duty sealed maintenance free (venting system), and heavy duty hybrid options available.
Vehicles with stop-start systems require enhanced battery energy due to the frequent start and stop events at traffic lights.
The Koba series have enhanced the durability and battery life to perfectly optimise performance for stopstart vehicles. But they are not only optimised for start-stop vehicles, but provide higher stability and longer life for normal non-stop-start vehicles as well, with greater cycling ability and increased starting power.
