How to get the maximum life of your battery
Tighter emission regulations and fuel economy requirements have driven vehicle manufacturers to introduce new technologies which often place higher loads on the vehicle’s battery and electrical system.
Car batteries have a limited lifespan – on average around 3.5 years – and once they start to fail, they are much less likely to respond to recharging. This is because the positive plates in the battery degrade over time, which reduces its ability to store and deliver power to start and operate the vehicle.
Almost all vehicle batteries are now maintenance-free, which means that you only need to follow the tips below to ensure you obtain the maximum service life:
- Regularly drive your vehicle
- Never leave your battery for long periods without being charged
- If you drive mainly on short trips, consider purchasing a multi-stage battery charger which will allow you to charge and maintain your battery to keep it in good condition.
Don’t be inconvenienced by a flat battery. Read our article on the warning signs that your battery may be failing to ensure you're not inconvenienced by a flat battery.
Take care when handling batteries, as incorrect handling can cause serious injuries. Batteries contain sulphuric acid and give off explosive hydrogen gases, so they should always be kept away from naked flames. They should also be kept away from children.
