Why does my battery wear out so fast?

Modern vehicles have more electrical components and gizmo’s than ever before. This puts a lot of strain on your electrical system, making it hard for the battery to keep up. Think about it: electric seats, seat heaters, power locks, windows and sun roofs; add to that all the power outlets for our cell phones, computers, DVD players, navigation systems and powerful stereos… whew. Plus there are all the vehicle engine and transmission computers, traction control, stability control, anti-lock brakes, sensors (getting the picture?). Even the security system is running off the battery while the car is turned off. After all that, summer heat and winter’s chill can take a real toll on battery life. Be sure to check with your auto repair professional at Town Hill Auto Service in Bedford PA  for more info about your battery.

Napa Replacement Battery

Fortunately, battery technology has produced resilient batteries that are able to meet these strenuous requirements; but the fact is, vehicle batteries will wear out over time. Eventually, every battery gets to the point where it cannot hold enough of a charge to start your car. Sometimes batteries need to be replaced because they have developed a leak and sometimes it is simply a result of age.

Napa replacement batteries come in all shapes and sizes. Some cars have limited space that requires a specially shaped battery to fit. Larger vehicle engines require more powerful batteries to get them started. If you live in a cold climate you will need a more powerful battery because engines are harder to start when it is cold. Batteries come in “good”, “better”, and “best” grades. More expensive batteries may have a longer warranty and are guaranteed to last longer. As with most things auto owners need to purchase to keep their cars in good condition, paying a little more up front saves money in the long run.
