Frequently asked questions

How long can I leave my battery unused?

The type of battery and the storage temperature will determine the rate of discharge. Lack of use is the biggest cause of battery failure, especially in automotive batteries, however regardless the type of battery, they will always self-discharge over time and if left in a discharged state, could suffer failure.

When / Why do car batteries fail?

  • Car batteries rely on liquids to keep moving. The sweltering heat of summer can lead to evaporation of water in your car’s battery acid, resulting in decreased performance, subpar starting power, and a shortened lifespan.
  • If the weather is very cold, your battery needs to work harder to generate enough energy to keep running, and cold weather can also result in thicker engine oil, which puts an additional strain on your battery.

When do I need to change my car battery?

  • After 2-3 years it is normally time to install a replacement.
  • Your battery tends to lose power in cold or extended starts.
  • Your headlights dim when you are idling.
  • Your car is slow to crank.
  • If you have a battery fluid leak
  • If your car sits in the garage or driveway for extended periods, its battery continues to drain passively even when the engine isn’t on.
  • If you consistently take short trips like daily drives to the office and the grocery store, your battery doesn’t have enough time to recharge fully between trips. This can lead to decreased performance.
