A battery gives life to any vehicle, your car needs battery power to start its engine. A car battery is also used in stabilizing, filtering and giving the needed power for ignition. It provides the jolt of electricity necessary to power all the electrical components in your vehicle.
There are several factors that determine how long your battery will last, the average life expectancy for a car battery is between four to six years and it depends on some factors like weather conditions, vehicle type, and driving habits. The car battery will last longer if the vehicle is driven daily and the battery is kept fully charged. But when the vehicle is parked for an extended period of time, the possibility of battery deterioration increases.
There is nothing worse than being stuck in the blazing heat or the freezing cold, in both situations your car battery is actually under the most stress. If you are living in a warmer place, where you used to deal with high temperatures, the heat can take its toll on your car battery health. A car battery operates best between 30 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit, so the rise in temperature more than that can create a big problem for your battery.
The first step to changing your car battery and improving your car battery life is finding out what type of battery your car uses. While a discharged battery can be recharged, if this problem begins to happen frequently there are several advantages of replacing it. Most importantly, a new battery gives more power to the engine, as it ignites the plug stronger and stabilises the electricity supply much better and faster than the old battery. While it is often the case that few people feel the difference of an oil change when it is replaced, most people notice the big difference of a battery change when it occurs and gives their vehicle a boost.
