How to know the date of manufacture of Bosch batteries

Varta, Bosch, Hanza, Berga, Energizer, Perion, Black Max, Safa, etc

Can be assembled in 7 countries, but as a rule only Czech Republic and only AGM batteries from Germany are imported to Ukraine.

Place of application. top cover, the code can be in the far right or in the far left corner, also in European models, it is often found the application of the code under the handle. ( See figure).

Let us consider the principle of the code in more detail: it looks like C5C 659141. Where the first symbol indicates the country of manufacture, and the fourth-sixth date of manufacture.

As we can see from the code in the example, the first character C which indicates the country of manufacture of the battery, let’s decode:

H Hannover, Germany Hannover, GermanyC Ceska Lipa, Czech RepublicCeska Lipa, Czech RepublicE Burgos, Spain Burgos, SpainG Guardamar, SpainF Rouen, France Rouen, FranceS Sarreguemines, France Sarreguemines, FranceZ Zwickau, Germany Zwickau, Germany

Now let’s try to determine the date of manufacture of the battery itself. The year of manufacture is indicated by the fourth character, in this example is the number 6, everything is simple: 6. 2016, 7. 2017, 8. 2018 and t.д

The fifth and sixth digits indicate the month of manufacture, but it is encoded this way:

January, 18. February, 19. March, 20. April, 53. may, 54. June, 55. July, 56. August, 57. September, 58. October, 59. November, 60. December.

So, based on the above, our example battery is made in November 2016.

But that’s not all, if for some reason the number can not be read (e.g. frayed number), you can determine the date of manufacture of the battery case, it is applied to the bottom on the bottom and usually corresponds to the date of manufacture of the battery itself. It looks like this

The circle with the numbers from 1 to 12 indicates the month, and the second circle. for year of manufacture. From our example, it appears that this battery was made in January 2018. There are markings that show only one circle: where the arrow points to the month of manufacture, and the numbers next to the arrow to the year.

The production date of the Bosch S3, S4, S5, S6 car battery

Bosch batteries have a needle-stamped VIN code on the lid. There are variants of this code: 13 digits and letters arranged in a row or groups of 9 4 digits.

First character (letter). is the name of the manufacturer:

H Hannover, Germany Hannover, GermanyC Ceska Lipa, Czech RepublicCeska Lipa, Czech RepublicE Burgos, Spain Burgos, SpainG Guardamar, SpainF Rouen, France Rouen, FranceSarreguemines, France Sarreguemines, FranceZ Zwickau, Germany Zwickau, Germany

The third character (letter). The type of order to which this battery is to be delivered: to a car factory, to a wholesaler, to a car manufacturer or to a retailer. Batteries sold through retail chains have no access to banks. This is how the manufacturer protects its products from damage when sold through non-specialized retailers.

Please note that Bosch does not own any battery production facilities. “The corporation orders its products from the world’s most renowned battery manufacturer. Varta. For example, the Bosch S4 battery in your car is a Varta Blue Dynamic battery with a different label. Interesting fact: The number (3,4,5,6) in the name of the battery Bosch, after the letter S means both the name of the model line and at the same time the estimated service life of the battery. Bosch batteries are usually manufactured in the Czech Republic, (code letter. “С”).

The date of manufacture of the battery is encoded in the numbers that occupy the fourth through eighth positions in the code:

The last digit of the year of manufacture, the month (indicated by two digits), the day (also two digits)

For example: the code G2C2082410474 contains the date of manufacture of the battery: 2-08-24, 2012, month 08 (August), the 24th of the month.

This was the case before 2014. If the fourth digit in the code is 4, 5, 6, 7, etc.д., The table below should be used.

Attention! Varta and Bosch began to use a new coding for the date of manufacture of the battery in 2014. In the long code it is 4-6 digits. 4. year of manufacture, 5-6 encodes the month of manufacture:

How do I know the date of manufacture of a battery produced before 2014?

We have to focus on the year 2014, because until then the date was coded according to one principle, and after that according to another one.

know, date, manufacture, bosch, batteries

Marking location

know, date, manufacture, bosch, batteries

In this case, the marking of the battery Bosch deciphered as follows:

1 mark. The first letter means the name of the factory where the battery was manufactured:

  • Ceska Lipa (Czech Republic). C;
  • Burgos (Spain). E;
  • Rouen (France). F;
  • Guardamar (Spain). G;
  • Hannover (Germany). H;
  • Sarrhemin (France). S;
  • Zwickau (Germany). Z.

2 mark. Conveyor belt number.

3 mark. Type of shipment, depending on the specified letter, this would be the battery that was shipped to a car factory, a large wholesaler or a retailer.

4 mark. This is the year of manufacture: 0. 2010, 1. 2011, 2. 2012, 3. 2003, 4. 2004, 5. 2005, etc.

5 and 6 digits. Month: 01 for January, 02 for February, 03 for March, etc.

It turns out that the marking C8C8091310474 will decipher the following: The battery is produced in the factory Ceska Lipa in the Czech Republic on the conveyor belt by order of a partner store. Date of issue of 80913: (8) 2008, (09) September, (13) 13th.

In 2014, the decryption has changed slightly.

Date of manufacture of the Bosch battery

Bosch is one of the leaders in automotive batteries. The shelf life of their batteries is about 3 years (by comparison, other manufacturers’ shelf life ranges from 1 to 2.5 years). Therefore, when buying a Bosch battery, the date of manufacture is important, which can be determined by paying attention to the outer marking.

Bosch battery.

The greatest difficulty arises in cases where the manufacturer changes the method of marking from time to time. In the past, the date of manufacture of a Varta battery was color-coded: the year was indicated by numbers, and the month or quarter by colored stickers. Later came the alphanumeric code, which contained information about the country of manufacture, container number, manufacturing period, type of order and even the shift number.

Varta’s battery production time designation in the 13-character marking in the past has taken 4-8 positions. For example, in the combination C2C2101210327, the fourth digit is the last digit of the year (2012), the fifth and sixth are the month (10. October), and the seventh and eighth are the date (the 12th). Thus, we can accurately establish that this Varta battery was released on October 12, 2012. Later, since 2014, the brand products began to be marked in a slightly different way, which is not so convenient for the average user. Today, it is also used for Bosch batteries, so you can read more about it below.

The example shows: manufacturer Czech Republic, November 2016.

H. Hanover, Germany, C. Ceska Lipa, Czech Republic, E. Burgos, Spain, G. Guardamar, Spain, F. Rouen, France, S. Sarrhemin, France, Z. Zwickau, Germany

If you want to know the date of manufacture of the Varta battery, you must remember, the 4th character in the code indicates the last digit of the year, and the 5th and 6th characters indicate the month. Clearly in the table.

How to determine the date of manufacture of a battery?

All required information can be found on the labeling of the batteries. There is no unified standard for the marking of the battery by production date, it is put differently on different batteries. Most manufacturers indicate the date of manufacture of the battery as a set of letters and numbers and sometimes as a color marking.

The date of manufacture of the battery may be indicated on the front label, embossed on the cover, or placed on a separate label on the side wall. There are no standards.

Varta, Bosch and Gigawatt car batteries are now produced on the same production lines. Therefore the way they are coded is identical. The code printed on the battery case of a Varta, Bosch or Gigawatt battery consists of nine positions (two letters and seven numbers).

For example, on the case cover we see the code C2C659313. This stands for: First letter. Shipment details: V. For retail sales E. for completion at the car plants C. made to order by a partner

First digit. conveyor number.The second letter. The territorial location of the factory: H. Germany (Hannover) C. Czech Republic (Ceska Lipa) S. Sweden (Haltsfred) A. Austria (Vienna) F or R. France (Rouen) E or G. Spain (Guardamar. Burgos)

4,5,6 digits determine the production date. The table below can be used to determine when the battery was manufactured.

Thus, the code C2C659313 tells us that the battery was produced on order by a partner at a second production line in the Czech Republic in November 2016.

Thomas batteries are a lower cost analogue of the Varta Blue Dynamic series and are also produced in the Czech Republic, so the Thomas battery is coded according to the same principle.

On Topla batteries, the code is laser engraved on the top of the case. TOPLA four-digit marking:1, 2nd digit is the year3, 4th digit is the week

For example, the code 1644 tells us that the battery was produced in the 44th week of 2016, t.е. October 2016.

Since mid-2017, the marking has been moved under the right battery terminal (lower right corner when viewed from above) and reduced to 3 characters:

1st digit. last digit of the year of manufacture

Thus, the code 811 reports information that the battery was released in week 11 of 2018, t.е. March 2018.

Baren Blue Polar and Baren Profi batteries are manufactured at Fiamm. The country of manufacture of all batteries is Italy g. Veronella, also has a factory in Austria. On Fiamm batteries, the production date information is also present in the embossing on the battery cover 1 number. Year of production 2 and 3 numbers. number of the week is the 4th. day in the week on the 5th. work shift

For example, code 64921 tells us that the battery was produced in 2016, week 49, December 6.

The same principle of marking is used in Fiamm Titanium Pro batteries.

Car batteries “Energassila”, ZUBR are produced at the plant JV “Polesskie Batteries” LLC The place of marking is the upper left corner of the battery cover.Example: 6L03E1. 6. 2016, L. month (November), 03. number, E. assembly line, 1. capacity code (55 Ah).(A-January, B-February, C-March, D-April, E-May, F-June, G-July, H-August, J-September, K-October, L-November, M-December)

Eurostart batteries manufactured at the Kursk Battery Factory are labeled as follows:

The battery was produced on the production line. 340. individual batch code. Date of manufacture: 2016, 2nd half of the year, 2nd month, 22nd date (August 22, 2016).

Batteries Klema norm and Klema better are produced in Dnepropetrovsk (Ukraine) at the plant of JSC “Vesta”, which means that the marking of the battery is deciphered in the same way as for the other batteries produced at the plant. The marking is on the battery cover in the upper right corner and consists of 10 digits. The first four digits indicate the production line numbers and capacity specifications of the battery. Fifth symbol. last digit of the year of manufacture, sixth. 1 or 2. first or second half of the year, seventh. ordinal number of the month in the half-year, eighth and ninth. day of the month and the last tenth. brigade number.

For example, the battery number 2074 723091 tells us that the battery, with a capacity of 74 ah, was produced in the third month of the 2nd half of 2017, t.е. September 9, 2017 on the second production line by the first crew.

Ista 7 series and Ista Standard batteries, produced by Energoavtomatika LLC, Ukraine

The location of the marking is the top cover, above the label.

Example: 2644, where 2 is the production number, 6 is the last digit of the year (2016), 44 is the week number (November).

For batteries manufactured by ISTA-Center, the marking is different, for example: 131624, where 1. production number, 3. crew number, 16. year of issue, 24. week number (beginning of June).

Volat Autopart, Autopart Plus, Galaxy Silver, Galaxy Gold car batteries.

In the upper right corner of the battery cover is embossed with 4 digits, where the first digit is the year, the second and third digits are the week.

For example, the code 1644 tells us that the battery was released in November 2016.

The condition of a fully charged battery is characterized by the following parameters:

That’s why there’s no “freshness” requirement in Europe when purchasing batteries, even for automakers’ conveyor belts. In addition, the capacity and ampere specifications are clearly marked on the factory stickers, it is sometimes difficult to find the date of manufacture on the battery case.

The date of manufacture of a battery is usually encoded by manufacturers and serves only to identify the battery in complaint cases, so it is not useful information for the consumer and should not influence his choice when buying a battery.

How to know the date of manufacture of an accumulator

When stored for a long time, a car battery is self-discharged. Lead-acid batteries, when discharged, are subject to destruction. To be precise, it destroys the lead plates inside the battery. It turns out that the battery has not worked a day, and after a year or two, it has less than the manufacturer’s stated capacity. It can be avoided if the battery will be periodically checked and charged. But in warehouses, where there are hundreds or even thousands of batteries, no one does. Because of this, the end user needs to know the date of manufacture of the battery.

How to know the date of manufacture of a Bosch battery?

Many customers of Top-AKB store are interested in the date of manufacture of the Bosch battery, which they are going to buy. Let’s face it: in case of a new product this information is of no practical value.

The battery is fully operational provided the open circuit and under load voltages are within the normal range of 12.4-12-7 and 10-11 volts, respectively. The courier or salesperson in the store tests each battery with a loading fork in the presence of the customer. The indicators are fixed in the warranty card. According to the official letter of the manufacturer (Johnson Controls), the normal shelf life for their batteries (without recharging) is 1 year and 8 months. You can always check this information with an official representative of Bosch in Russia.

Bosch battery. Fake or Original? How to tell the difference.

In the last few years, there has been a decline in the quality of Bosch-branded batteries. This trend applies to both the appearance (housing, labeling, terminals) and the life of the battery. An inexperienced consumer may think he is dealing with a fake. In reality, counterfeiting car batteries is a thankless and unprofitable task. In several years of experience we have never come across any counterfeits. On an industrial scale, only a large enterprise with an official status can produce such products.

The real reason for the difference between the old batteries (those that lasted 5-10 years) and the new ones is much more trivial. it’s the deterioration of production quality. The once-reliable Bosch brand has been turned into a veritable “consumer product”. The example below shows two identical Bosch S4 021 models, one from 2013 and the other from 2019. In the picture you can see that the old battery is even and clear, while the new one is not as well done as it should be. Click on picture to enlarge:

The pictures at the very beginning of the page are an example of the date of manufacture markings on the Bosch S4 009 battery:

C0C858112

Where the fourth character “8” is the last digit of the year of manufacture (2018)

The fifth and sixth character “58”. month code (October).

You can use the table below to decipher other similar codes:

Interstate Battery System International Inc. makes batteries for automobiles and other types of batteries. All interstate batteries are marked with a date stamp, which the interstate calls the date of shipment. Interstate distribution centers also put another date on batteries because batteries are recharged if they stay in storage for more than three months.Finding the date of manufacture of interstate batteries is fairly easy if you know what the codes mean.

Step 1

Look at the top of your interstate battery to find the manufacturing date code. You can only see the code directly above the battery.

How to read the production date: Bosch Varta Batteries

Step 2

Check the corners of the battery and look for an alphanumeric four-digit or five-digit code. The code is engraved on the battery case. If you can’t find the code engraved on one of the corners, check the positive terminal of the battery marked “”; some interstate batteries have the code engraved on the terminal.

Step 3

Write down the code so you can determine the date of manufacture of your interstate battery.

Step 4

Look at the first number you wrote down. This letter is what represents the month of manufacture. For example, “C” denotes March and “F” denotes June. However, if the code is on the positive terminal of the battery, the letter of the month is preceded by a “U”, so February appears as “UB”.

Step 5

Look at the second digit or, if the code is on the positive terminal of the battery, the third.This is the number that denotes the year of manufacture, so “4” denotes 2004 and “0” denotes 2010. The cycle lasts only 10 years and then repeats, so 2011 is the same as 2001 and has the number “1”. ” as the second digit. The remaining two or three digits indicate where the interstate battery is made.

Step 6

Check the top of the battery to see if there is another code. It may be engraved, or it may be a sticker. It has two digits and means that your battery has been recharged at the distribution center.

Write down the code that matches the code for new batteries. The first number is a letter and the second is a number. For example, if the code is D7, your interstate battery was recharged in April 2007.

Appliance manufacturers, of course, don’t make it easy to determine what year the appliance was made. If your dishwasher model was released every year with the same hype as most cell phones every year, the release date will be ingrained in your memory, even if you’re not a fan of that particular model and never planned to buy it.

How to determine what year my Bosch SHU5315 dishwasher was made

Image courtesy of: scyther5 / iStock / GettyImages

Alas, people are less interested in dishwashers these days, even if they use them as much as phones.

Finding out the year of manufacture of the Bosch SHU5315 is not an impossible task, but it helps if you wanted to be a detective as a kid and owned a magnifying glass, among other regalia.

When you need to know the year your dishwasher was made?

You may need to know the year of manufacture of your dishwasher if it needs to be repaired, as this will help service engineers determine what tools to use to repair your appliance. It’s also handy to know the year for insurance purposes.

Finally, if you’re buying a used dishwasher, it’s important to know the year it was made. This information will come in handy if you need to buy any parts or, again, if your dishwasher is malfunctioning and needs service.

The Bosch SHU5315 is no longer in production, so if you have it in your home, you probably can’t remember by heart what year it was made or even what year you bought it.

Now, how did you find that magic number?

First, find the serial number

To find out the year of manufacture of your dishwasher, you first need to find its serial number.Inside the door or on the side of your dishwasher, you’ll find sequences of numbers and letters that will probably be readable even after several years of use. One of these numbers begins with the letters FD. It’s the serial number you’re looking for.

To find out the year of manufacture

Your dishwasher’s serial number begins with FD and is followed by a string of numbers. Ignore all but the first four of these numbers.

Now put on your Sherlock Holmes hat because you will need it to decipher the information encoded in these four numbers.

To find the year, add 2 to the first two digits of this four-digit string. The last two digits represent the month.

So if the number is 7902 FD, adding 2 to the first two numbers will give you 99. Since Bosch dishwashers were not yet made in 1899. and eliminates the unlikely possibility that you are reading this post 2099. the year of manufacture in this case 1999. month of manufacture February.

If your serial number is FD 8205, adding 2 to the first two digits will give you the 5-digit number 10205.In this case, skip the first digit and enter the year 02 (2002) and the month 05 (May).

Now, if that serial number is still legible, don’t check your fate and write it down on a piece of paper to save time and energy in the future!

Explanation of the date of the Bosch battery

Bosch batteries have a needle-stamped VIN code on the case cover. There are variants of this code: 13 digits and letters in a row or groups of 9 and 4 digits.

The first character (letter) is the name of the manufacturer:

H Hannover, Germany Hannover, GermanyC Ceska Lipa, Czech RepublicCeska Lipa, Czech RepublicE Burgos, Spain Burgos, SpainG Guardamar, SpainF Rouen, France Rouen, FranceSarreguemines, France Sarreguemines, FranceZ Zwickau, Germany Zwickau, Germany

The third sign (letter) is the type of order to which this battery will be delivered: to a car factory, to a wholesaler, to a car manufacturer, or to a retailer. Batteries sold through retailers do not have access to the banks. This is how the manufacturer protects its products from damage when sold through non-specialized retailers.

You should also be aware that Bosch does not own any battery manufacturing plants. “The corporation orders its products from Varta, the world’s most famous battery manufacturer. For example, the Bosch S4 battery in your car is a Varta Blue Dynamic battery with a different label. Interesting fact: The number (3,4,5,6) in the name of the battery Bosch, after the letter S means both the name of the model line and at the same time the estimated life of the battery. Bosch batteries are usually manufactured in the Czech Republic (code letter “C”).

The date of manufacture of the battery is encoded in the numbers that occupy the fourth through eighth positions in the code:

The last digit of the year of manufacture, the month (designated by two digits), the day (also designated by two digits)

For example: the code G2C2082410474 contains the date of issue: 2-08-24, year 2012, month 08 (August), month 24.

It was like this before 2014. If the fourth digit in the code is 4, 5, 6, 7, etc.д., You need to use the table below.

Warning! Varta and Bosch began using new battery manufacturing date coding in 2014. In the long code it is 4-6 digits. The 4th year of manufacture, 5-6 encoded the month of manufacture:

Good day friends! Bought myself a new battery not so long ago and could not figure out the date of manufacture! For all the transcripts that I found was nonsense! And here is a respected Oleg shed some light on the truth for which he thanks a lot! It turns out that since 2014, Warta and Bosch batteries come with a changed production date coding! My battery is coded C7C45613205996 536036, which means xnj it was manufactured in the Czech Republic and came off the seventh assembly line in August 2014!I enclose a table that may be helpful to someone! I wish you all a great mood and smooth roads!
