Facts And Fallacies About Car Batteries
Car batteries are a common item since just about everyone owns a vehicle, but there are several facts and fallacies about how these batteries work. Let’s take a look at some of these examples.
Car Batteries Will Run Down When Stored
This is true, as if you keep a battery in storage, it will begin to run down. It discharges its stored energy and soft lead sulfate crystals form in the battery pores, as well as on the plates. Keep car batteries in a cold place if you want to slow this progression down.
Well Maintained Batteries Last Five Years or More
This is true, as if stored properly, as well as one that is not over or under charged, a car battery can be expected to stay good for five or more years. However, if you leave a battery in a car for a long period of time without driving the vehicle, the battery will eventually run down and no longer work.
Going on Drive Will Recharge a Battery
This is false, as car batteries can’t be recharged fully by idling, driving or otherwise running the vehicle after the battery has flat lined. This will actually make things worse and lowers the ability of the battery to be charged, and will void its warranty.
Tap Water Is OK to Top Off Battery Levels
This is false, as it has too many impurities. Instead, use distilled water or in an emergency, rain water. Tap water has too many minerals that can build up in the battery and block pores and ruin the plates.
The bottom line is that you should only follow manufacturer’s directions for car batteries concerning maintenance, and other facts, and that if you need a new battery, come to Motor City Battery in Lincoln Park, MI or call them at (313) 451-8479.
