The Heart of Your Automobile- Your Car's Battery

Whether you drive a gas guzzling monster truck or a small compact car, every vehicle needs a battery to start, including electric or hybrid cars. Your car's battery is the heart of your automobile, and it is in charge of every electrical component. Here are some important facts about one of the most important parts of your car.

How well you treat your battery can determine how long it will last. Although most batteries are designed to last about six years, if you constantly use the electronics in your car while the engine is off, it will significantly shorten your battery life. Additionally, weather plays an important role in how long your car battery lives. If you live in a cold-weather climate, the weather can reduce a batteries ability to transfer its full power to your car's electrical components, making it harder to start your car.
