Four Ways to Show Your Car Battery You Love It
This Valentine’s Day, CTEK Shares Tips to Love Your Battery
Chicago, IL (PRUnderground) February 10th, 2023
This Valentine’s Day, don’t just show your love for your humans or pets, show your car battery you love it too. A dead car battery can be annoying, but it can also be avoided if you show it some love. Today’s modern vehicles are packed with lots of power-hungry technology and, if you couple this with a change to driving habits post-COVID, a dead battery is becoming more common than you think. CTEK, the leading global brand in vehicle charging solutions, lists four ways to show your car battery you love it this Valentine’s Day.
Understand Your Battery
It takes 150-350A of battery power just to start the car, so taking lots of short journeys, particularly in urban areas, drains the battery because the alternator won’t have the time or capability to replace this charge. This is especially so if your car has a ‘stop/start’ function. In fact, if you’ve noticed your ‘stop/start’ hasn’t been kicking in lately, this may be because your battery isn’t sufficiently charged, as your car will gradually turn off ‘non essential’ functions to focus the remaining battery charge on keeping the engine turning.
Even while your car is parked, your battery will lose 0.1V of energy every month and, if your car is also running an alarm system, onboard computer, remote locking etc., the continual drain on the battery will be much more than that.
Charge Your Battery
Driving around in your car will normally only charge your battery to 80% capacity so, show your battery how much you care and top it up to 100% when you get home.
Regularly Maintain Your Battery
Carry out regular (at least monthly) maintenance charging with a smart battery charger and maintainer. This will keep your battery topped up and in peak condition, and you can be confident that the engine will start right when you need it. It also means your battery will be around for much longer as regular charging actually extends battery life by up to three times – so make this Valentine’s Day the start of a long and beautiful relationship!!
