How to extend the life of your battery
No battery is maintenance free and can fail at anytime without warning. Batteries are sensitive to temperature changes and that is why they should be tested regularly.
Your battery should be checked for dirt, corrosion and loose cables - which can all cause your battery to fail. Keeping your battery in good shape will also give your electrical system a longer life. If your battery isn't working to its full potential, your charging system will have to work overtime and other electrical components can suffer as well
Most of the time a battery will show the first signs of a problem when you are trying to start you car, especially in cold weather.The sound of a clicking noise under you bonnet and failure to start is an indication that you battery voltage is low and requires replacing or professionally charging.
