Your Car Battery Life

Posted on July 8, 2011 at 10:58 AM
Your car battery is fighting quite a battle, on one hand to live longer and on the other to power all the new contraptions that adorn your car these days. So while the car battery continues to become more and more equipped to handle more power, the increase in power consumption of a battery and the extensive use of cars these days, brings the whole battle back to square one.

But still, there are several factors that play their part in affecting the car battery life. The quality of the battery itself and the usage aside, a lot also depends on the overall maintenance of the car and the battery. Also the number of times that the driver sits idle loading the battery.

The average life of a car battery today is said to be around 5 years. How long does the battery in your car last? How many years can it go without giving you too much of a problem?  You never really ask yourselves these questions till that morning when you turn the key in the ignition and get no response. And then reality strikes you, Maybe the battery is dead. After all, my car is about 5-6 years old and you have forgotten to check the battery for a few years now! A large number of battery failures are due to extereme heat and not cold. With todays vehicles being controlled by onboard computer, your battery has to work even while you sleep to keep all systems active.
Overusing the car battery can dramatically shorten the car battery life span. So don't test it. Keep the  lights off when you don't need them, don't used unnecessary accessories too much and keep the AC and the stereo switched off when your car isn't running. Keeping all the battery operated parts of the car 'on' when the car  is not running, drains the battery a lot faster.

Regular battery maintenance goes a long way in improving the car battery life expectancy. The next time you send your automobile for servicing , make sure that the guys check your battery. The battery cables and  terminals need to be cleaned and maintained to optimally utilize it, so that it won't give any problems in the future.  Maintaining a battery goes a long way in increasing the life.
