About Our Company
GEP was established in Afghanistan in 2020 as one of the leading investors in our rapidly growing country.
Based on its R&D studies, Production Development and technological investments, and its innovation motto, GEP. holds ISO 14001, ISO 16949, IS0 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 50001, and OHSAS 18001 quality certificates and ISO 10002 Customer Satisfaction Management Certificate in compliance with the international norms and standards.
GEP has become the biggest battery manufacturer in Afghanistan, with the level of quality, capacity, and trustworthy service that it has achieved. GEP has become a source of pride for its country as it is the leading institution of its sector.
We have all types of Motorcycle Batteries ranging from 04 Amp to 10 Amp & Automotive Batteries ranging from 32 Amp to 240 Amp. We take pride in being the only local manufacturer for all types of Maintenance Free Batteries, ranging from 32 Amp to 200 Amp. We are the only local manufacturer of Tubular Batteries ranging from 12 volts 80 Amp to 160 Amp, specialized battery for Solar Panels and Stand By Power. Another milestone achievement by us is having the ability and facility to produce VRLA batteries (Valve Regulated Lead Acid Batteries) (AGM) ranging from 12 Volts 80 Amp to 200 Amp in front Access and Top Terminals for Telecommunications & alternative energy. We recently introduced VRLA Batteries (Valve Regulated Lead Acid Batteries) 02 Volts Cell 200 Amp t0 3000 Amp, which provides solutions for solar energy and telecommunication sector.
We have state of the art manufacturing unit to produce quality products with more than 2000 employees. Our head office is in Herat – Afghanistan and is supported by 7 regional offices across the country, enabling us to cater to the needs of our valued customer s effectively.

Our Mission, What Can We Do?
To be the preferred energy storage supplier of customers, investing for a sustainable future, and to contribute to all stakeholders, transferring our corporate culture and values from generation to generation.
The battery is equipment that stores electrical power in the form of chemical energy and gives it back in case of need. The task of the battery gives electric current to the starter motor for the first time to work, to send current to the receivers when the vehicle engine is not working. The other task of the battery provides a balance between voltage and amperage in the electric system when the engine operates and thus to prevent the receivers from damage as a result of high voltage that the alternator may generate at high speeds. In such cases, the battery takes over some of the current generated by the alternator and prevents overvoltage.
- Make sure that the battery you use for connection of one battery to another is of the same amperage.
- Switch off the engine and all electrical components.
- First, the red cable end is connected to the (+) terminal of the discharged battery; then the other end is connected to the terminal of the charged battery.
- And then the black cable end is connected to the terminal (-) of the charged battery and the other end of the cable is connected to any metal part of the vehicle having the discharged battery.
- Make sure the cables do not contact with any moving or hot things such as exhaust and impeller.
- And start the vehicle with the charged battery first, and then start the vehicle with the discharged battery.
- After the cars start, you may remove the jumper cables, starting with the vehicle with the discharged battery.
Possible reasons for discharge for GEP Batteries you bought:
- Adverse environmental and storage conditions, high temperature, humidity, etc.
- Leak currents on the car (currents drawn more than the anticipated short circuits), open lights
- Short circuits on other electric equipment and components
- Mismatch of the vehicle and battery; selection of small battery; additional onboard vehicle components (audio, light, computer systems, cooling systems)
- The insufficient charge generated by the alternator (charging generator)
Batteries have consisted of lead, sulfuric acid solution, and polypropylene box. For this reason, when batteries become unusable, they are risky and hazardous waste for the environment. However, an effective recycling system makes it possible to recover the polypropylene box and lead components of the batteries. Although it is also possible to recover sulfuric acid, it is mostly preferred to neutralize it.
Selection and Installation of Battery
Select the battery you desire properly according to the vehicle from the lists given in our catalog indicating characteristics of the batteries. Sizes, cold cranking current, and capacity values are important selection criteria. Activate the dry charged batteries according to the method given above and, if required, charge them.
In the case of flooded batteries stored, when the average daily temperature is less than 4°C, if the open-circuit voltage is 12.50 V and less, then recharge it according to the method given above.
If the ambient temperature is high and the open-circuit voltage is 12.40 or less, recharge it according to the method given above.
Mark the cables as +/- before you remove the old battery in order to connect the new battery correctly.
Measure the voltage value and direction of the battery to make sure it is correct; check the cable connections and battery stand carefully and clean them. Place the new battery and make the connections and tighten.
Firstly, connect the positive (+) cable. Secondly, connect the negative (-) earthed cable. Tighten carefully. As overtightening may damage the posts, be careful especially when you tighten the battery posts from sideways.
Cover the posts and cable ends by an anti-corrosive agent.
