How to protect the car batteries?

by Tom Haris Hillam Tyres

Along with the tyres, a component that plays an important role in a vehicle is a car battery. It is a fact that cars with good battery work more smoothly than any other car.

Car Battery Huddersfield runs maximum for five years, and generally wears out or become inefficient in three years. The reasons for their inefficiency are cold and wet weather or congested traffic. These contribute to bad battery performance. Therefore, to make sure one is not stranded in the middle of the road, battery replacement becomes essential to get more reliable performance.

There are many garages that provide excellent service for repairing car batteries, Hilliam Tyres, being the one, gives a quick, affordable, and reliable solution. It is a fact that battery issues can cause over 66% of car recovery calls. 

Know about the battery

Before dealing with car batteries, it is important to know what type of battery it is. The details of a battery are written on outside of the battery’s case. These will be a series of numbers and letters that provide the features of a battery.

For instance- 55B34L

  • Here, 55 means the power of the battery which ranges between 30~120
  • B means width
  • 35 means the length 
  • L means the position of the electrode. L means the electrode is on the left side.

A battery can be either flat or dead. A dead battery needs to be completely replaced but a flat battery can be recharged if the electricity at an optimum level is supplied to it. To recharge a battery, a booster is connected to the flat battery to restart the discharged battery. The point that needs to be taken care of is that both the live and the flat batteries should have the same voltage readings. 

Hillam Tyres have given some useful tips on how to make your car batteries work for a longer time.

These are—

  1. Always take long journeys. Frequent stops reduce the charge of a car battery.
  1. Always use a battery tester. It is important to read the car manual before inspecting any part. The battery testers provide a good indication of the battery’s health. 
  1. Regular checks on battery make sure connection points are clean.
  1. Avoid using electronics like the radio when the car is off. This usually shortens the lifespan of your car’s battery.
  1. Make sure that the electrical system of the car remains in good working order. Hire a mechanic to work on the system.

A new battery indeed helps to give better power to the engine. It stabilises the supply and makes an engine stronger and durable. Following the above-mentioned points, there will be lesser battery problems which require a quick solution. But even if one faces any battery issue, professional help should only be the solution to get a correct application and procedure. You can always contact your local garage to know more about the life and functioning of the battery. Further, you can visit them to know the health of your car battery.
