A long time ago, people had to start the engine on their car by hand. For many decades now, we have learned to rely on car batteries to provide us with precious electricity. So many different systems in our cars need electrical power, and the solid foundation beneath it all is the car's battery.
First and foremost, after a simple touch of a button or turn of a key, it brings the car engine to life. Once its primary function is complete, the alternator supplies all the electrical systems in your car.
All the way into 1950s, older cars used 6-volt systems which are now outdated, as they can't really handle all the needs of modern cars with bigger engines and power-hungry electrical accessories.
Like all other batteries, car battery has its own lifespan, which may be affected by numerous factors. Depending on the way it's been treated, a car battery should last for up to six years. The battery needs to be recharged multiple times throughout its lifespan but these cycles actually shorten its life.
While your engine is running, the battery gets charged, but once you switch it off, all the electronic components of your car drain its juice and reduce its lifespan in the process, slowly and gradually.
Eventually, every car battery needs to be replaced, and you'll be well informed when that time comes. When it can't provide enough power to start your engine, you will experience slow cranking and the battery warning light will shine brightly on your dashboard.
When the time comes to get a new one, we can help you choose the right battery for your car and replace it for you. Dead batteries need to be disposed of properly, as the chemicals in them are not environmentally friendly.
Different weather conditions also affect your car battery's life. Cold temperatures don't actually freeze the battery, but they do affect its ability to transfer power.
On the other hand, extremely hot weather may evaporate the battery's solution which leads to lower ability to hold a charge. When this occurs, some people refill the battery with water to compensate for the evaporation, but we don't recommend this as it may lead to permanent damage.
If you really have no other option, try refilling it with demineralized or deionized water. Either way, be prepared to replace your battery as soon as possible.
When your battery dies, you still need to get your engine running so that you can actually get to the nearest service station. You can do so by jumpstarting your car's battery.
To do that you will need another car, a set of jumper cables, safety glasses, and safety gloves. If you or the other car's owner isn’t sure how to do it, it's best to call a tow track and transport your car directly to a service station. A miscue may lead to serious injuries and this task is best left to trained professionals.
We can sort out each and every type of trouble you experience with your car's battery.
