Why Do You Need Battery Replacement?
With proper care, your car battery can serve you well for years. If your car battery won’t charge or does not have enough energy to start your vehicle, you may be dealing with battery failure. There are many reasons your vehicle battery can fail. Here are some reasons you might need a battery replacement.
Batteries should remain fully charged at all times. An undercharged battery is consistently going through the process of “sulfation”. This discharges the battery and will eventually stop it from working.
Corrosion of the conductive posts increases electrical resistance when transferring a charge to your vehicle. This can cause your vehicle to have trouble starting and waste the life of the battery. This is important because the slower your battery is discharged, the longer it will maintain full functionality.
Overcharging your battery is dangerous and can potentially cause other car problems. Should the overcharge be severe it will retain this gas and your battery will begin to swell. A swollen battery is carrying enough hydrogen gas to facilitate an explosion.
