press release

You've accidentally left your lights on, and now you've been left with a flat battery. Or maybe your car won't start when outside temperatures are low, so you have to use a mobile power charger. These kinds of battery and mobility problems can become a real issue in winter in particular — but Bosch is providing the answers to your questions in six video clips.

The video clips cover topics such as correct storage, the right battery type for your car and battery recycling in a straightforward way that is easy for everybody to understand. The answers to your questions about replacing batteries or starting up are explained step by step, while a witty narrator talks you through the animation and provides entertaining snippets of information. The audience does not require any technical knowledge.

The Bosch Battery Basics can be found on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. The clips will play on all end devices with an Internet connection and are available at any time.
