Car Batteries Hillcrest Car Batteries Hillcrest Car Batteries Hillcrest

Hillcrest was formerly a sleepy village, governed by its own Town Board [5] on the outskirts of Durban that has now become a booming suburb incorporated into the eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality. Hill Crest (as the town's name was variously spelt until 1969) was founded on a rise in the main road from Durban to Pietermaritzburg in 1895 as a farming or "weekend" village, then a good distance from what was the emerging port of Port Natal. The village was laid out as leasehold sites on a portion of the farm Albinia owned by William Gillitt, one of the main pioneer families of the area and after which the nearby suburb of Gillitts is named.

About Car Batteries

A car battery is the component that powers the vehicle. Its stored energy is not only for this purpose however. Car batteries supply power to a host of other items such as navigation systems and radios when the car is switched off. This power supply remains limited unless the cars alternator can recharge the battery. Recharging can only happen when the car is in use. When a car remains idle over a long amount of time the battery will discharge leaving the car unable to be driven. This is just one of the factors that needs to be watched out for that leads to battery failure. Some other signs are
  • Headlights becoming dimmer
  • It takes longer to start up the car
  • Car batteries in Hillcrest losing power much faster during cold weather

These are some of the signals letting you know that it is time for a check-up of the battery or a full replacement. It can be very dangerous to go and do a check-up by yourself as car batteries can explode. Car owners can clean their car batteries in Hillcrest, when corrosion occurs, with a baking soda and water mixture. Precaution should still be kept though by wearing safety goggles and gloves and not having any open flames near the engine. This includes not smoking during the cleaning process. The age of a cars battery is also a factor to getting it looked at for potential problems. Car batteries usually becomes problematic around 5 years of age, but maintenance is advised from 3 years and onward on a yearly basis to avoid major problems.
