Car batteries are an important part of an automobile.

Most car batteries fall into the ‘SLI’ category, which stands for “starting, lighting and ignition.” Meaning, car batteries provide short bursts of energy on demand in order to power certain car features. These features include lights, accessories, phone chargers, and the engine. Once the battery jolts the engine to start, additional power is then supplied by the car’s alternator.
