Car batteries are an essential feature in our day to day lives, and the automotive world is no different. Ensuring you replace your car battery when necessary is important for several reasons. Here we look at the benefits, uses and key features of a replacement battery in your vehicle.
Benefits of Car Batteries
Batteries on cars, vans, motorbikes and various other vehicles do not last forever. The key is to replace them when they are beginning to deteriorate so as not to cause further damage of problems. There are several benefits to ensuring your vehicle has a battery replacement when necessary. First, they will perform better, which in turn will ensure that your car or van is performing at optimum levels. Second, a new car battery will dramatically reduce the risk of your vehicle not starting or breaking down. Third, new batteries retain their charge for longer periods of time. Finally, a new battery will keep your car maintenance costs down. This is because it will ensure a quicker and more efficient supply of electricity to all parts of the vehicle, which in turn allows them to operate correctly.
Car batteries have 5 main uses when in use. First, and perhaps most importantly, they assist the engine in starting. Second, they act as the ignition system’s helper. So as well getting the engine to run, the battery also helps start all other electrical elements, including any security systems. Third, is acts to ensure the sustainability of the energy system of the vehicle. This means that when the car is on and being used, the battery is recharged so that it can help start the car next time. Fourth, the battery is used to operate the alternator. It does this by transferring electricity to the alternator, which allows you to use functions such as air-conditioning and headlights. Finally, it acts as a voltage regulator, absorbing any excess voltage that occurs in the vehicle to ensure that it is always protected. Further to this, automotive batteries can also be used to power small homes.
Key Features of Car Batteries
An automotive battery that would be used for a range of vehicles such as cars, vans, lorries, trucks, motorbikes, and quadbikes is an example of a 6-cell wet cell battery. These all share the same features such as 12-volts of power, each cell producing 2.2 volts, and the use of sulfuric acid solution acting as the electrolyte in each cell.The type of battery you use will, of course, depend on the vehicle that it is going to be used for. For example, a battery to operate a car will differ from that of a motorbike. In addition, these batteries also vary between models. A good way to check which battery is best is to have a look at your user manual. If you do not have this, you can check the old battery for information such as size, CCA (cold cranking amps) and the cell type. If it matches, it should be good to use in your vehicle.
