Take Care of Your Car's Battery This Winter

Car batteries are to be treated with care if you want them to last a long time for you. The simple truth is that car batteries are sensitive to heat and cold in a lot of ways. Extreme changes in temperature can make them very much unable to be used in the manner that they are supposed to.

Heat can cause chemicals in a battery to start to react and spill over onto the battery. Many of those chemicals involve acid, and that means that it is literally possible to erode the battery from inside of itself. No one wants to be in that position, but a lot of people have become careless about leaving their vehicle out in the heat.

Cold is just as bad for a battery as it may cause the battery to freeze. Once it is frozen, you are not going to be able to use it again. Cover your vehicle or better yet keep it in a warm garage when the temperature gets low.
