Being stranded on a road due to car battery failure is no noble experience. Especially, if it goes down at a secluded spot. This pitiful scenario is a frequent sight during winters. Car batteries are more susceptible to malfunctioning during cold weathers mainly due to :
- Charge acceptance ability drops
- Consequently, battery doesn’t recharge as quickly while driving
- Increased Load – lights, blowers, wipers, heated seats, rear-screen heater, etc.
- Power output drops
- If the battery is more than 5 years old or past the warranty period
HOW TO AVOID SUCH UNPLEASANT INSTANCES?
First things first, invest in a premium battery. It might seem expensive, but ‘better safe than a roadside emergency’. In the long run, the low maintenance feature definitely pays off.
Always choose the right battery for your vehicle’s specification. Battery type requirement varies in different make/model of cars. Get help at www.tatagreenbatteries.com/mybattery to find the best suited battery for your vehicle type.
During winters, engines tend to turn harder which significantly reduces the amount of energy your car battery produces. Keep your car properly garaged when not in use.
Be sure to turn off all of your car’s electrical devices (e.g. wipers, lights, heaters) before turning off the engine. These devices drain your car’s battery and are most likely to damage the car’s electrical system if you start the car with these things turned on.
If you don’t use your car often, make sure you take it out on a weekly basis to keep the battery charged and engine/brakes functioning smoothly.
Lastly, consider purchasing a car battery charger just in case. You never know when it might come in handy.
