6 Great Car Battery Maintenance Tips

6 Great Car Battery Maintenance Tips

Owning jumper cables is like owning a truck. When you own a truck, people seem to cozy up to you when they are moving. When you own jumper cables, you’re suddenly like Batman but for dead batteries. You might as well give your friends a Jumper Cables Signal that they can point at the cloudy sky in times of crisis. With great power comes great responsibility, I guess. (And now I am mixing metaphors.)

Car batteries are full of toxic chemicals and have to be dealt with specially when they die. The green thing to do is to squeeze as much life out of them as possible and decrease the overall amount of batteries that you are going to need in your lifetime. Here are some tips for that.

1. Park in a Garage
A thoroughly insulated garage will keep your battery warm in the winter. Skip heated garages. They will rust your car.

2. Keep Your Battery Clean
Remove the clamps and clean away grease, dirt and oxidation. A filthy battery connection will weaken the charge.

3. Insulate Your Car Battery
If you don’t have an insulated garage, you can always insulate the battery. It’s a cheap way to protect the battery.

4. Recharge it with Solar
You can purchase an inexpensive solar charger for your car battery. The charger refills your battery’s charge with solar energy. Combo this device with a monitor so you don’t overcharge the battery.

5. Add Distilled Water
If you’re stretching the life of a conventional battery, you may have to add some water to it.

6. Secure the Battery
If your battery is jiggling around, it could tip over. A loose battery bashing against other parts of your engine is bad. Battery acid spilling all over your motor is also bad. Keep the battery tray clean. Make sure the battery sits correctly.

    I had not idea that you could add water to the battery to extend it’s life. where do you put the water? I don’t know if I trust myself to do this the right way. Is this something that I could ask my mechanic to do?

    Car battery is full of toxic chemicals. Even the best car battery tends to show a decline in the functionality with the passage of time. So, the things to do is to squeeze as much life out of the battery as possible and decrease the overall amount of battery that one is going to need in his life time. Though the blog is dealt with some useful battery maintenance tips still I want to share some tips in the following.
    1)Drive on a regular basis in order to maintain the level of charge in it.
    2)It is good to check the engine’s health on a regular basis as efficiency and stability of engine is directly related to life of the car battery.
    3)Don’t ignore early warning signs because sometime ignorance may become dangerous.
