General Information on Car Batteries Howick

  • A car battery is a rechargeable battery that stores electrical energy that it gets from the cars alternator. Because car batteries are rechargeable they will need to be frequently used to be charged up by the alternator. Car batteries Howick that are left unused for some time will self-discharge and result in battery failure.
  • Car batteries are an important component of all vehicles. When you turn on the ignition of your car, the battery is there to supply power to start the car. Car batteries also give off power to extra car items such as navigation systems and radios when the car is switched off. The car battery must also have enough of power to supply to the car in case the alternator stops working. At the very least this energy must cover getting the car to a workshop or a safe place.
  • Car batteries do age and the older a battery gets and the more charging it will require when it does.
  • It is often seen as a myth but it is not. Car batteries can explode. Safety precautions must therefore be taken, to avoid injuries. The car batteries Howick customer should always wear safety gloves, read the warnings carefully, and prevent any flames and sparks near the battery when working on it, or jump starting it.
  • Sulphation, overheating, overcharging and vibration damage are some of the common reasons for car battery failure, which should be avoided.
  • Once a year the battery needs to be checked for corrosion and can be cleaned out with a mixture of water and baking soda. 
  • A good battery can last for up to 5 years if properly cared for. Without proper care, it usually goes downhill around 3 years and this would be an ideal time to get it looked at by the experts at Battery Man.
  • Some signs for you to keep an eye on for poorer battery function are:
  1. The brightness of the headlights. They will become dimmer when the battery is no longer operating well.
  2. During cold weather, the car battery will lose its power very fast.
