Car Batteries Ixopo Car Batteries Ixopo Car Batteries Ixopo

Ixopo was formerly known as Stuartstown, after M Stuart, Resident Magistrate of the Ixopo district, who was killed at the Battle of Ingogo in 1881.[2] Its name is derived from the Zulu onomatopoeic word, eXobo, describing the sound made as cattle squelch through mud. The 'x', in Zulu, is pronounced as a lateral click).

Ixopo is most famously described by Alan Paton in the opening lines of Cry, The Beloved Country: "There is a lovely road which runs from Ixopo into the hills. These hills are grass covered and rolling, and they are lovely beyond any singing of it."

The town houses two schools including a high school with a large proportion of boarding pupils who live in surrounding villages (such as Bulwer, Underberg, Creighton) which are too small to justify the erection and staffing of a high school.

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 Ixopo 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 Ixopo, 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.
