Didnt even last 5 months

published

Purchased a Century Ultra Hi Performance on the 31st of October 2021 (4.5 months ago at the time of this review) and its now completely dead, Tried 2 different Chargers, one with a rejuvination cycle. it said it was charged and the indicator showed green, tried to start the car, failed and the battery now shows its dead flat on the indictor. Its just completely unable to hold a charge after 4.5months. Mental for a $240 product.

Century batteries used to be reliable, but not anymore

published

Pretty disappointed in this brand. Century batteries used to be reliable, This is the third battery in 4 years. The first two died on the last few months of the warranty. This one has died 7 months out of warranty. The battery is rated at 810CCA. Being used in a standard Subaru Outback 3.0 and Mitsubishi Pajero 3.2 did

Didn't last

published

Purchased a Ultra Hi Performance 4WD Battery N70ZZLX MF for my Pajero from super cheap, has had light use with 25min runs to work, no extended drains, never run flat etc etc. Died at 32months so just outside of warranty
I don't think the quality of century batteries is what they sue to be. Wont buy another as you pay a premium price expecting it to last which is a shame as want to support Australian made

Century Batteries and Supercheap Auto - Both bad

published

Have just had a Century N70 Ultra Hi-Performance battery die just after the 30 month warranty. Has been unreliable from day of purchase. Have reported issues to Supercheap and Century in the past and no help from either. Supercheap are hopeless with warranty claims.

Have to discard century battery after 2 and half years

published

Disappointed that I have to discard my Century deep cell battery after only 2 and half years. It has a mass of white crystals forming on terminals. I've tried cleaning them off but it just returns. I contacted Supercheap Midland and was told it's not under warranty and should be discarded.My Bosch battery lasted over 6 years.

2 century batteries both faulty at 9 months

published

I am confirming that both batteries are faulty, don’t hold charge and on the weekend RACV was called out for s third time. Supercheap refunded one as RACV printout confirmed the voltage was not enough to start the car. Waiting till lockdown is over to get the next one back to the store. Purchased a RACV battery heavy duty same price and somehow the car runs like a dream. Time the ACCC stepped in and Supercheap Auto represented a reputable brand. The store was really helpful and had no issues with the warranty claim, they must know that if 5/10 come back they still make a profit.

Disappointed

published

Have a pristine low super K’s Toyota Corolla which needed a new battery, so purchased a Century to suit. A few months later saw acidic stains on my concrete driveway which I cannot remove. Assumed it was battery overflow, but when I checked the battery, found that the complete battery cradle was badly corroded through the acid leaking battery. The cradle is factory welded to the body so cannot be replaced. No more pristine Corolla. Thank you, Century!

Century batteries are the worst.

published

We purchased 2 x Century batteries in July 2020 and both are faulty. They constantly lose charge over 2-3 days. They do not die completely but you cannot start your vehicle. We purchased these from Supercheap in Toowoomba and they want you to leave the battery overnight so they can charge it on their 9 stage charger. They don't have a battery load tester. Very unpleasant customer service. We have no choice but to now contact ACCC to see what can be done as both batteries are clearly still under warranty. We will give Century and Supercheap seven (7) days to correct the situation

Won't hold charge, refused warranty

published

Purchased battery from supercheap auto that is now going flat overnight.
Vehicle alternator is charging correctly and no parasitic draw.
Took back to supercheap and they charged it and said there was nothing wrong with it.
Two weeks later and it is going flat again, supercheap auto are refusing warranty, battery is still within its warranty period.

15 months and dead.

published

I bought this N70T deep cycle battery in Feb 2020 just prior to the Covid crisis. My camp trailer has been on two overnight runs in the last 15 months, and has been in storage with it's float charger connected. Imagine my surprise when I checked on it again today, and despite is almost brand new appearance, the unit won't hold charge when the charger is removed dropping to around 10v within an hour without any load. Joy. $280 on a rather heavy paper weight. Will try my luck with a return to Supercheap, hopefully they can find my receipt, because I'll be buggered if I can find it. If not, I'll just buy some cheap Chinese battery and kiss the aussie manufacturer goodbye.

Is it true that not all Century Batteries are made in Australia? If not which one's are? Is it true that if you install a deep cycle agm battery under the bonnet it is NOT covered by your warranty?

Thanks for the reply. Thought I was talking to Century not a third party. I have since learned that a flooded agm is covered by warranty but not the sealed agm.
