Similar to the heart of a human body, the battery can also be described as the source of power which propels the car. The best definition of a car battery to a novice is ‘a can loaded with chemicals which has electrons that move the car.’ As you are aware, it is charged while the vehicle is in motion (source – alternator). Also, if the battery is low in charge, then you may face challenges in starting the car or making use of any electrical devices (aka: radio, lights etc). Some of the other ‘components’ which rely similarly are seat belt tensioners, antiskid brakes, air bags etc. And, yes, you can also include the GPS which is very essential these days.
A survey suggests that only thirty percent of the car batteries complete the 48 month age category. In case of cold climates, the age might extend to 51 months whereas in hot climates it is just 30 months. Surprised! The major culprits are the accessories found in car such as the GPS devices, DVD players, computers, cell phone chargers which prevent the battery from having a full charge.
If your car battery has completed three years, Cheers!you are a very good maintainer of your car. But either have the component replaced or conduct regular check-ups. Just imagine for a moment, you are five miles away from normal population, in the middle of a forest. Your battery falters, you can face awkward moments.
