BASIC BATTERY INFORMATION FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND

 

A battery in good shape is essential for the proper functioning of your car or truck. It brings the necessary electricity to the starter as well as to the ignition system so that the engine can start. Then, the battery provides power when the load requirements exceed the capacity of the charging circuit and finally it serves to stabilize the voltage of the electrical system.

 

SOME INTERESTING TERMS TO KNOW COLD START POWER:

 

It is a globally recognized standard for the power of a battery in cold weather. This standard is measured at 17.8 ° C or if you prefer 0 ° F. As we can think the higher this value, the more efficient the battery is during cold start.

 

CAPACITY :

 

This data is the measure of the power of the battery. The higher the capacity, the stronger the battery.

 

CYCLE :

 

A vehicle draws energy from the battery creating a discharge. The alternator recharges the battery when the vehicle is in use. Each series of discharge and recharge is considered a cycle.

 

GROUP DIMENSIONS :

 

This international standard is very important because it describes very precisely the exact compatibility of the battery that must be in your vehicle by designating the size of the battery, its characteristics and the type of terminal.

 

POWER OF RESERVE :

 

Available power at the vehicle's electrical system in the event of alternator failure or if electronic components are used when the engine is not running. This data is measured in minutes. It is the amount of time that the battery can provide power before falling below the minimum power level required to power the vehicle.

 

CERTAIN SIGNS THAT INDICATE THAT A BATTERY SHOWS SIGNS OF FAILURES:

 
  • Difficult startups that are slow

  • Battery cables damaged or in poor condition

  • The case of the battery which is deformed and / or curved

  • Loose battery terminals

  • Leaking fluid from the battery

  • Massive accumulation of acid on the terminals

  • History of electrical system and / or load problems

 

According to experts, the batteries begin to fail after three years of use. Ford has conducted studies that concluded that 20% of vehicles three years old or older could potentially need a new battery.
