Cheap Car Battery Prices Are One Idea But


by Adam Solomon

Cheap Car Battery Prices Are One Idea But

Trying to find cheap car battery prices is another!  I have yet to find any.  Especially if you are looking for a hybrid battery.  New hybrid batteries range from ,000 to ,300!  I don't know about you but I don't think everybody has an extra ,000 in their pocket that they can just throw out on the counter.

This happened a few months ago when I saw that red triangle light up in the middle of the dashboard.  This couldn't be happening!  Money was tight and the wife was going to have a baby in a month, maybe sooner.  So I had no chose.  I needed the transportation.  There had to be some cheap car battery prices that my wallet could afford.

With all the focus there is on recycling these days there has to be cheap car battery prices out there that are a little more reasonable in price.  So I started dialing on the phone and making calls.  Just going down the list from one dealership to the next.

I was discussing it with a co-worker at lunch one day who owned a hybrid car from a different car maker.  He told me that he experienced the same thing when looking for cheap car battery prices a few months ago.  He chose to buy a battery that was refurbished at the factory.

So you would think the quality of the hybrid battery would be higher since it was done in the factory.  So was the price!  A total of ,200!  The search for cheap car battery prices continued.  I decided to quit calling dealerships and start looking online instead.  I'll bet ya Amazon sells the darn things.  As the new page came up I saw nothing there.

Thinking to myself, "Now where would I start looking for cheap car battery prices?"  Ebay, Craig's List?  God knows even Amazon probably has something up for sale.

So I erased that and tried another search when something else came up.  It was not about cheap car battery prices but was referring to rebuilding your own hybrid battery by yourself.  I always say, "If you do not take a look, the only loser is yourself."  It was probably some guide for a mechanic with years of experience but I had nothing but time on my hands at the moment.

As I was reading the page I scrolled down to some of the comments and testimonies.  A couple of guys said they did it in three days.  If they would have not had other engagements scheduled, they probably could have done it in less time.  I might have started out looking for cheap car battery prices but this might be the answer.  Most of all, I had a wife expecting a baby in three to four weeks.  I needed that car up and running again, PRONTO!

Cheap car battery prices?  They said this guide would show you how to rebuild the battery for an average cost of 0.  0! Now THAT sounds a little more in my price range.

Q&A: Anyone ever worked on a project about “safe recollection and disposal, recycling of lead-acid batteries”?


by Buster Benson

Question by ihrobin: Anyone ever worked on a project about "safe recollection and disposal, recycling of lead-acid batteries"?
The challenge we are facing is enforcement of the regulation. The law of the land requires old, used battries to be deposited with authorised recollection, recycling agents. New battery customers are supposed to leave the old one with the retailer; the retailer is supposed to send it to the recycling agents.

However, the informal, illegal channel is still very active in collecting the batteries by offering monetary incentives to battery retailers and users.

Unsafe disposal, recycling of old batteries is a major environmental concern in Bangladesh. While a new battery for an average sedan car costs 3000 taka (local currency); the used batteries are exchanged for an amount ranging between 500-1000 taka.

How do we build awareness? How do we get the law enforcers to enforce the law?

Best answer:

Answer by C R
The UK used to have a fairly good record for recycling lead/acid batteries compare with the rest of the EU.

Since the EU introduced lead/acid battery regulations the percentage recycled in the UK has dropped.

In a Car Repair “TERMS” What is this Mean !?


by gordonwatts

Question by Bijan F: In a Car Repair "TERMS" What is this Mean !?
I will explain as simple as I can, but it is NOT an everyday term I am going to use here. They say when your battery is NOT charged right, or every once in a while that there are signs your battery is getting weaker and at a point the car won't start and you'd have to jump start your car by connecting 2 batteries . WHAT is The Term >>> Something is taking the juice out of the Battery" >>> in other words It is said in another way : < <<< "The car electrical system or wiring is sort of going to ground (as I have heard) " >>> and to me still I don't understand what do I have to look for to solve this shortage from not being done or happen to my battery, My car starts OK, and If I leave it for 3 to 4 days without using or starting it, This will happen and It won't start . Where do I start to find the place where this is going on or rather "which wires am I going to have to check !?" - Thanks in advance
