Car batteries are an important part of an automobile.
Just like a cellphone or an electric toothbrush, car’s need a charged battery to properly function. From starting your vehicle and powering the lights to charging your phone on-the-go, batteries provide the essential power needed to keep your car going.
A battery can be defined as “a container consisting of one or more cells, in which chemical energy is converted into electricity and used as a source of power.” In other words, batteries are composed of cells. These cells contain energy that is transformed into electrical energy on command.
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.
On average, most car batteries last two to five years. Keep your battery running longer by following these 5 tips:
