How To Extend The Life Of Your Car Battery: A blog around car batteries and how to make them last longer.
It’s the heart and soul of your car and it conutally gets you from one place to another. Your weekend road trips and daily trips around town are powered by your car battery and you won’t get anywhere without it up and running. As with most things, the better condition it is kept in and cared for - the longer it will last and keep you from reaching into your pocket for spare cash to cover the costly expenses and headache that a battery gone bad may cause.
Keep Your Car Moving.
It’s funny, with millions of people suddenly working from home in the last year battery problems have been on the rise eversince and they won’t be slowing down. If you don’t drive your car on a regular basis, there’s a pretty good chance that when you do hop in and want to go for a drive it may not do just that.
Be Prepared When Your Battery Dies.
The average car battery won’t last you forever. In fact, the typical battery will only last you between 3-5 years. If you haven’t replaced yours within that time frame, it’s time to start looking for the signs. Signs to look for include a mild hesitation when putting your keys in the ignition. Evenmore so, if your dash begins to light up like a christmas tree. Be prepared by talking to a trusted shop or automotive processional that will provide you with options on the best replacement battery when that time comes. Ideally, you’ll have a spare in your trunk like you do a tire, but it’s almost always an afterthought and battery shopping begins when you are stranded in the driveway before heading into work for that big meeting you just can’t be late for.
