Powering more adventures across South Africa

2018-08-09 06:01

DID you know that most South Africans have never taken a “local is lekker” holiday? While countless international travellers venture out to discover the untouched gems of South Africa, locals tend to stick to more familiar routes and destinations, mainly to visit family and friends.

So what is keeping you from travelling off the beaten track? Perhaps you feel limited by the type of vehicle you drive. Perhaps you fear getting stranded in a one-horse town. Where is your sense of adventure?


• Big five to little five

• Nine diverse provinces

• 2500 km of pristine coasts

• 535 000 km of potential road trips

• 163 Battery Centres nationwide

With a battery specialist around just about every corner, battery failures should be the last thing keeping you from enriching life experiences in your own backyard. As SA’s most trusted battery specialist, Battery Centre powers the adventures of almost every traveller with industry-leading Raylite batteries. Its nationwide warranty makes Raylite batteries the perfect choice for complete peace of mind on the road.

Whether you prefer to travel by car, motorcycle or truck, Battery Centre carries a full range of batteries for any vehicle and is trusted by all South African car manufacturers. With decades of experience, Battery Centre’s battery fitment is professional and precise to the specifications of your vehicle.

To travel is to change. But you can rest assured — the journey there and back again brings confidence, compassion and enlightenment. Experience the transformative power of travelling by venturing out into our beautifully diverse country. Don’t miss the lesser-known “SA by numbers”, such as earth’s oldest and largest meteorite crater (Vredefort Dome) or third largest canyon (Blyde River Canyon). They will challenge your perspectives and expand your horizons.

Don’t let battery worries keep you from the adventures that await. If you’re unsure about the state of your battery, contact Battery Centre for a free battery test. Testing your battery twice a year will reduce battery failure and ensure you have a smooth and adventurous drive throughout the year. Now, go forth and conquer the great outdoors.
