bbl batteries



Taxi batteries have to be extremely hard working, and need to be capable of starting and stopping the taxi’s engine all day, every day….

The demands of carrying passengers from place to place, day in day out, take their toll on the Taxi, especially the Taxi’s battery. Therefore, a quality taxi battery is required to start the Taxi engine many times during a shift, or multiple shifts. The constant drain and constant charging of the Taxi battery, adds a much larger strain than would be the case for a conventional car.

Also, most Taxis have diesel engines which again will put added strain on the battery. When combined with the multiple start requirements it is essential that a premium battery with advanced technology is required to ensure reliability.

For these reasons many taxis are using AGM and EFB Taxi batteries because of their Stop Start workload. These batteries are designed and engineered for the constant drain and demands of taxi’s everyday use.

At BBL Batteries we stock a full range of premium quality AGM and EFB Batteries. We can also advise you which battery would suit your requirements best. Just call or visit one of our branches and our team of battery experts will answer any questions you may have.

We also stock and supply a wide range of Dash Cams, ideal for use in Taxis. The dashcam BBL would recommend for Taxis is the SW011 with features including: -

  • Front and rear view camera
  • Wide angle lens (140 degrees) and the back wide-angle lens of 120 degrees can be rotated up and down 20 degrees
  • Built-in CMOS 1/4 inch low-noise and high-quality element can capture a clear picture
  • Built-in lithium battery with charging to protect last vide upon power loss
  • Built-in microphone and speaker
  • Support high-capacity MicroSD Card

Thanks to Mike and Ashley, our car battery was tested , found to be exhausted and not holding a charge, and was replaced all very efficiently and quickly and with courtesy and good humour.  Very grateful customers!

BBL Batteries in Truro was recommended to me by my local garage. I spoke to a gentleman called Mike who advised me on the best battery for my Ford Fiesta. Mikes extensive knowledge and experience was evident on talking to him and the battery price very reasonable.  The fitting service was extremely quick with no fuss. Exemplary customer service from all at the Truro store, I highly recommend this company. Many thanks.

I bought a Yuasa battery for my VW Eos after receiving advice over the telephone from a very helpful gentleman.  What made me choose BBL was the excellent customer service which was evident from the start.  The battery was fitted with no fuss and I was confident the job was done well.  Thank you to all concerned.

Was trying to order a product online but was doing something wrong my end. I telephoned the number from the website and spoke to Wayne , Wayne was more than helpful and made the whole ordering process hassle free and swift , which is rare these days!

Thanks very much for an easy process and keep up the good work

Noticed this depot/branch by chance while going to get a secondhand battery from a breaker. Man who served us had a scientific air about him and sold us a Yuasa battery for 48pounds. This would have cost 97pounds at Halfords or 120?pounds at Kwikfit.
Thankyou, very pleased not to have had to take a gamble off the internet and will tell people about you.

We purchased a battery for our car on Saturday morning from your Exeter Branch.
We thought the person that served us was extremely
professional and very pleasant. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to others.
Thank you for a very nice experience
