PowerFrame grid technology, developed by Clarios, is the next generation technology of vehicle batteries. The innovative design of a PowerFrame positive grid is stronger and longer lasting, delivering optimum performance for your car’s battery.

Keep Your Vehicle Moving

PowerFrame grid technology is designed to minimize the corrosion that leads to battery failure, allowing for you and your vehicle to continue moving. This corrosion occurs over time as a result of the charge-discharge cycles your car battery experiences. Purchasing a car battery with PowerFrame grid technology gives you peace of mind that your car will start day in and day out.

Structurally Strong

PowerFrame patented grid technology was built for strength. It is up to 66% more durable and more corrosion-resistant than other grid designs. PowerFrame grid technology resists the fracturing of the grid to ensure you have a more gradual decline in performance.

Superior Starting Performance

The positive grid is what provides the energy to start your car. It’s a critical component of your battery, start after start. The PowerFrame grid design improves the performance of your vehicle’s electrical system by providing superior starting performance with up to 70% better electrical flow than other grid technologies. This means more consistent starts.

Environmentally Friendly

The PowerFrame manufacturing process uses 20% less energy and produces 20% fewer greenhouse gases than other manufacturing methods.

In 2006, the PowerFrame grid technology process received the 2006 Clean Air Award from the EPA for the reduction of CO² in the air.
