Sizzling Summers and Sub-Zero Winters Drain Your Battery
Did you know that it is both kinds of extreme temperatures that prematurely affect your battery’s ability to recharge? The heat and humidity of Missouri summers can boil off the chemicals needed to create the reaction that sends up to 12 volts to your starter motor. Meanwhile, the constant freeze and thaw cycle breakdown the battery cell’s protection and slow down the chemical reaction. Ultimately, your car battery is fighting the elements all year long.
Average Lifespan of Your Car Battery
Why test your battery before you notice signs of trouble? Do you often return to your car in empty parking lots well after the sun is down? A dead battery can leave you stranded on the coldest night. You can end up waiting for hours for the tow truck to arrive for a jump. In the summer, you could be camping hours away from the nearest town–how long will it take for help to get to you?
