Installing new batery 


    How to Choose Your Car Battery

    The car battery is the power underneath the hood of your car. It provides electricity needed to start the car, for door locks, power windows, lights, audio and other car accessories. You must discard the old battery properly:
    Sell it to Scrap Metal buyers ; and,
    Automotive battery supply stores, they will buy off your battery with certain price value according to market.
    5 important factors in choosing a car battery:
    1. Size
    2. Brand
    3. Reserve capacity
    4. Age
    5. Cold-cranking amps

    Size refers to the height, width and length of the battery. They come in different group sizes to fit most cars’ battery tray. It is important that the battery fit securely. Always refer to your car manufacturer's manual to know your car's specific battery group size. You may also consult the reference guides, which battery retailers provide, find out the appropriate battery size for your car. Buying a wrong-sized battery will just be a waste of money and might just set off more damage to your car

    Brand refers to the trademark given to a certain product. Buying the battery brand specified in your owner's manual is the best way. But if that particular brand is too expensive and you want to do some cost-cutting, follow the specification requirement also found in the owner's manual.

    Do not be tempted to buy the cheapest brand because it could turn as the most expensive battery you've ever bought. Cheap batteries may also be loaded with defects and can also be poor performers. A frequent battery change, which also entails repeated installation, will just definitely use up the money you've initially saved when you chose a cheap car battery.

    Reserve Capacity
    The longer the operating time of the battery' reserve capacity, the better; because this is the one quality of the battery that could save you from getting stranded. Consider the RC rating as your car's emergency kit. In times of unexpected trouble, you can still run to safety instead of getting stuck somewhere.

    IMPORTANT: You cannot just pick and buy a battery with the longest reserve capacity. Consult your owner's manual to learn the recommended reserve capacity rating for your car model. It is best practice to choose the exact RC rating that your vehicle can handle


    Cold-Cranking Amps
    Cold-cranking amps (CCA) measure the battery's ability to start your car even on an extremely cold weather. Your car will be hard to start (or to ignite) because the car's engine oil thickens and chemical reactions, in turn, slow down.

    Choosing a battery with a high number of CCA is better; particularly to those vehicles being driven in a cold climate. A higher cold- cramping amps assure that your car's engine will start obediently even on snowy mornings.

    Obviously, you won't have to bother with much CCA if you're living in a tropical or warm climate. Since the sole purpose of your car battery is to spurt electricity to crank your car's engine and also to supply power other car's accessories.
    The age of the battery gives you an idea on how long it should be able to perform. A battery is considered ‘fresh' if it is less than 6 months old.

    Ask the automotive shop more on the particular battery that you want to buy.

    More Tips on Car Batteries 

    Do not install used batteries. It will be extremely dangerous. At first sign of battery trouble, start scouting around for a new car battery. You won't get a good buy when you're stranded with a dead car battery.
    Check the battery connections. Make sure that the cables and posts are well connected. To keep off corrosion much longer, rub a bit of petroleum jelly to each battery posts. This will help the cable slip back easily.
    Carry a portable battery charger inside your car for emergency use, but be sure to know how to use the gadget.
    'Jump starting' a dying battery is known to save a car battery-and some money, too; but do not attempt this without complete knowledge on the correct procedure. Wrong wiring connections will cause damage to engine control and other electronic parts of your car.

    Here are a few ways to extend the life of your car battery:
    When storing your car for long periods of time (weeks or months), disconnect the battery to prevent discharging.
    Check the water level in the battery every few months; it should just be touching the bottom of the refill hole. (This is only applicable for conventional batteries)
