5 Things to Consider in Selecting Car Battery

Car batteries will last for years. But it is a fact that throughout your vehicle's life cycle, old batteries will need to be replaced. It can be drained with the frequent use of electrical accessories and lighting for the vehicle. Many car batteries can expire without notice. That's why it's important to be pro-active in replacing the car battery regularly. This simple step can help ensure your road safety and make car maintenance less of a hassle for you and your family.

 

Of course, it is also important to know how to maintain the car battery in tip-top shape once you had it changed. There are many considerations to look into in selecting a battery, replacing it, and maintaining its condition. This article will provide you with the basic information:

 

Right Size and Type

When the time comes for you to replace the old battery, make sure that the get a new one with the right size and type for your car. Go through the car manual first or ask a mechanic before buying the replacement.

 

Durability in Extreme Weather Conditions

It is also important to note that car batteries are designed differently. Some can withstand extreme weather conditions during wintertime. Meanwhile, certain products are best used in warmer climates only. Heat is also a problem though. High temperatures increase plate corrosion and make the electrolytes vaporize faster.

 

Car Battery Life

Try to find out the expected battery life of the product before making the purchase. You cannot do without car batteries so choose the best one possible. Be conscious of your consumption and use energy wisely. Don't be too stingy though because the electrolytes inside the battery will drain away over time even when it is idle.

 

Car Maintenance

Majority of batteries today are maintenance-free. There's no need to refill the electrolyte regularly. Certain manufacturers right now are promoting absorbent glass mat (AGM) because they believe this to be safer. However, regular car batteries perform just as well. Overall, there's no need to continuously check your battery because of the technology available.

 

Recycling Tips

If you're replacing your car battery, then you obviously need a dispose of the old one. Try to bring the used battery to the manufacturer for recycling. Some even provide you with a discount for its return. Whether or not an incentive is given though, it is a good idea to bring the battery where it can be recycled.

Car is dead. Battery problem?


by gordonwatts

Question by Rakshan M: Car is dead. Battery problem?
Hi, I have a 2002 pontiac firebird. Have not had any problems till tonight. It was a bit cold outside (San Francisco, California) and when I pressed the key-chain button to open the car, it would not open strattera capsule. I noticed that even the radio-theft deterrent red LED that flashes inside had stopped. I got into the car manually and tried to put the key in ready position, but no indicators or lights came on and when trying to start it, it did not start.
Could this be because it was cold outside? I have not used the car in 2 days. Recently serviced (oil etc) by Jiffy Lube.
Im planning to lookup the battery "eye" (hydrometer) tomorrow morning and try again in daylight.
Any suggestions on what could be the problem? Also, 2 days ago I used a recently purchased seat-warmer device while the car was running, for approx an hour's drive. It couldnt be that, could it ?
The alarm could not have gone off within the last 2 days of non-use, since I wouldve heard it or seen it. The theft-deterrent LED I mentioned above is a small red light that flashes all the time that the car is turned off, and probably takes very little power from the battery.
Seat Warmer Info : It was unplugged after the 1 hour drive/use, so it could not have drained it. It might have put pressure on the battery while the car was running, but I thought when running, things dont run off the battery.
Im still suspicious about the warmer, since thats the only new thing in the equation.
Leaving lights on : Everything inside the car turns off within a few minutes of exiting and locking it. so I did not leave anything on. Headlights, if left on, cause the car to beep continuously (very irritating), so i dont think i left those on either. My last use of the car (returning from work) was as routine as always, except the warmer.

Best answer:

Answer by truth d
Yes and Yes and No and No

Yes theres no power (no dash lights) so in all likelihood yes its a flat battery so first impressions are that 1 something was left on (i.e. light, seat warmer) 2 the battery is faulty

No the battery wouldn't go dead because you used the seat warmer while the car was running and No the cold wouldn't drain your battery either

The fault is definitely electrical but I believe youre right in your suspicions about the seat warmer and the battery. my guess is however youve wired the warmer is the problem. Disconnect it and jump start your battery and you should be sweet 🙂

Types of Car Battery

Types of Car Battery

Car battery is very important for running of car. The main purpose of a battery is to start the engine. Without a battery, car or any other automobile cannot run. Moreover, it is also used for to filter and stabilize the power. It also provides extra power for ignition, lighting and other accessories when engine is incapable of handling all the things. When charging system is not working, the battery provides power to the electrical system.

The battery of your car lies under the bonnet. For proper functioning of the car, it is important that you take proper care of your battery. If the battery of your car is not working properly or getting weak, you cannot start your car easily. You may have to "push-start" it.

Most of the car batteries that are well maintained can last for two years. But, some of eth technologically advanced batteries can last for 5 years also.

While buying a new car battery, you need to consider several factors. Climate of a place is also a factor which influences your strategy for buying car battery. If you are living in a hot climate, you will need a battery with higher RC rating and if you are living in colder climates, a higher CCA rating would be required.

There are two most common types of car batteries; low-maintenance and maintenance-free. (Non-sealed and sealed) The low maintenance batteries are made up from lead-antimony/calcium formulation. It is dual alloy or sealed. These batteries offer several advantages such as longer life, less preventive maintenance, faster recharging, reduced terminal corrosion, greater overcharge maintenance and longer shelf life. However, these batteries are more prone to deep discharge failures due to increased shedding of active plate material. In hot climates, it is recommended to buy non-sealed batteries because, you can add water when required which is not possible in sealed batteries.

One more type of battery is there these days; it is dual type battery which has features of a combined battery also. It has switchable emergency cells. However, people buy two batteries and Keep them isolated. With growing technology, more expensive batteries will be available in future.

Car batteries are manufactured according to the international standards. They are based upon the physical case size, terminal polarity and terminal placement. The car battery prices vary according to its type, CCA and RC rating and warranty. You can look online for more information and features of about batteries of different types.

Top 10 Tips for Car Battery Care


by Orin Zebest

Top 10 Tips for Car Battery Care

Car battery is the rechargeable battery that provides electric power to different components of the car. The primary function of the battery is ignition. In addition, the battery provides extra power for various electronic car components.

 

If the car battery plays such an integral role in the functioning of the car, then it’s very important to take good care of the battery. Seasonal checks and periodical maintenance of the car battery is crucial to enhance life of the battery as well prevent ignition blues.

 

Signs of Low Battery

 

Here are some of the signs that indicate that the car battery is either low or needs to be replaced:

 

Dim headlights

Slow Ignition

Improper functioning of the car air-conditioner

Spark in the electric wires

Car electronics not working effectively

 

Here are top 10 tips for car battery care:

 

Firstly, it is important to keep the battery clean and free from dust. To do so you can use baking soda and a non-metallic brush to get rid of any corrosion from the cables.

Then, disconnect the cables and clean the area surrounding the battery terminals and cables.

To remove the battery cables first disconnect the negative cables and then the positive.

Remove the battery cover and check the level of electrolyte/ it should be about half an inch deep. If the level is not maintained add clean distilled water and let it mix with the electrolyte.

Inspect the battery case for any kind of leakage and cracks. If in case there is any crack replace the battery case.

Make sure the car battery is well secured inside insulated case because the vibrations caused while driving may damage the battery. Ensure that to protect the battery from vibrations, you don’t over tighten the clamps.

To replace the car battery carefully lift the battery because the acid inside can be dangerous.

To reinstall the cables, first connect the positive cables and then the negative.

Smear a little petroleum jelly onto the battery terminal before fastening the cable clamps to the posts. This jelly like substance will help slow down corrosion and enhance life of the attery.

These days many different types of car batteries are available. If in case you have a non-maintenance battery, check if you can see a green dot in the charge indicator. This green dot indicates that the battery is functioning effectively and if the indicator light turns yellow or no colour, it needs to be replaced.
