How to Extend Your Car Battery’s Life
Car battery replacement costs aren’t as pricey as some other auto maintenance items, but you’ll still want to make sure you’re making the most of your investment! Here are a few practical tips to help your battery last as long as possible:
If you only use your car for short trips around Ontario, make it a point to drive around for at least 30 minutes once a week or so to keep the battery fully charged.
Don’t sit in the car with the lights or radio on when the engine is off.
Park in a shady area when you can to prevent the battery from getting too hot.
Every so often, check under the hood that the battery is secured in its compartment and not jostling around when you drive.
Don’t allow corrosion to build up on the battery’s exterior.
Don’t let your car go unused for extended periods; take it out at least once per week.
Check the battery’s voltage on a monthly basis. A healthy battery should sit at around 12.7 volts or higher.
