Special offers

Autoworld June 2019 offer - 8 days only

Starting today, 15% discount on all Willard, Raylite and Hi-fase batteries!

Is the cooler weather challenging your battery? Did you know that batteries run a maximum of 3 to 5 years, even with proper care.

One simple way to test if your car battery needs replacing is to start the car at night and switch on the headlights. With the vehicle out of gear, press the accelerator. If the headlights get brighter as you do so, then that's a sure sign your battery is on its way out.

Now’s a perfect time to get a new battery, with this generous offer from Autoworld. Available at all participating branches and Impala Service Station while stocks last.

Autoworld specials on KYB and Monroe shocks


Potholes and gravel roads significantly reduce the life of vehicle suspension components, especially shocks, though driving cautiously over bad roads will help. See our previous article on shocks.

Worn out shocks not only adversely effect passenger comfort but also driver control and wear and tear on other components.

Now is definitely the time to sort out your shocks, because this month we have a package of offers on shock absorbers!

1) A big 20% discount off all KYB and Monroe shock absorbers.

2) If you buy a set of 4 shocks, a further 20% discount applies to the fitting charge.

The only catch is that this offer expires 8th May! Make sure you don’t miss out :)

Truck and Bus Tyres offer - on all Triangle and Doublestar tyres

Calling all truckers and bus companies in Zambia. A massive 20% off all Triangle and Doublestar tyres while stocks last.

Three reasons why you should replace worn out tyres:

  • Tyre treads provide the traction necessary to grip wet or oily roads
  • Tyre treads help keep your tyres cool, reducing the risk of blowouts
  • Tyre treads help keep your tyres inflated. Low pressure tyres can’t grip the road as well, making it harder to steer the vehicle, harder to brake, and increasing fuel costs.

What better time than now to replace fleet vehicle tyres - with this amazing 20% discount offer from Autoworld!

All about car batteries


According to Battery University (yes there is one out there), “All batteries have one thing in common: they run for a while, need charging, progressively fade with each cycle and eventually need replacement. The dream of a continuous energy source is not going to happen soon.” http://batteryuniversity.com.

Choose a reliable battery brand

Willard is acknowledged as a quality product that offers value for money, also a hard-working brand in terms of its ability to meet the needs of a diverse market. Willard Batteries is part of Powertech Batteries, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Powertech Group, one of the largest power electronics and telecommunications group in Southern Africa.

Autoworld also stocks Raylite batteries. Established in 1931, Raylite has been a solid performer on the world battery scene for decades.

Replacing your vehicle’s battery

When it comes to replacing your battery, selecting the right one can make all the difference between a battery you rarely think of, and one that becomes a constant source of frustration. 

It may be helpful to check out the Willard Battery Replacement Guide for passenger vehicles (This website also has a replacement guide for batteries used for agriculture, trucks and leisure products)

Not sure if you need a new battery?

If you don’t know whether your battery needs replacing, visit any of Autoworld’s fitment centres. While you wait, our staff will check your battery terminals and battery water levels (distilled water levels) ensuring your battery remains in good condition. We will also happily test the charging system on your vehicle, as well as your battery condition. Our equipment will report the alternator voltage (very important in prolonging battery life).  The equipment will also test the condition of the battery, identifying any damaged cells. You’ll get a printed report of this assessment of your vehicle’s charging system and battery.

Batteries for recreational use

Never store batteries for long periods of time without charging them up regularly. This shortens the lifespan of a battery significantly, even if it is brand new.

If you have a recreational vehicle, boat or motorcycle that is not used on a regular basis, it is advisable to connect its battery to a trickle smart charger. This is a battery charger permanently connected to a 220v power supply as well as both terminals of the battery while it is stored away. The charge of the battery is permanently kept above 12v. As soon as the battery drops below 12v then the charger automatically begins to charge the battery. Once the battery has reached 12v the charger will immediately turn off. This charger can be left connected for very long periods of time and will protect your battery from permanent damage. Smart chargers are available from the Autoworld Downtown Marine shop.

We trust this information has been useful to you. Visit our fitment centres and Autoworld stores for your new battery.
