The demand of the battery varies on the different vehicles and driving styles. It is important to determine if a deep-cycle or starter battery is required to meet your vehicle needs. The starter batteries give a large burst of power for a short time as required for normal engine starting. Later these batteries are recharged by the alternator. Starting batteries drain faster and shorten its life. Deep-cycle batteries provide a steady amount of current for a long period of time. These batteries can be discharged and recharged without any damage or shortening its life.
The battery size should best fit the physical dimensions, terminal locations and type needed for the vehicle. Choose the battery which did well in cold-cranking amps (CCA) and reserve capacity tests. CCA rating is used in the battery industry to define a battery’s ability to start an engine in cold temperature. The reserve capacity indicates how long a new, fully charged battery can be used to operate essential accessories if the vehicle alternator fails.
Investing in the right car battery includes price range, size, power and quality. These factors allow save time and money
