Car Batteries and Accessories

Like many parts in your car, your car battery will need to be replaced at some point. While you can pay a dealer or mechanic to change your car’s battery, it’s actually one of the maintenance jobs that you can easily do at home. As long as you have the know-how – and it doesn’t affect your car’s warranty – changing your own car battery can be a great way to save money. So, what should you look for when buying a car battery?

First check your car’s manufacturer’s manual to find out the recommended size and reserve capacity of the car battery you need. The manufacturer may also recommend a battery brand, but it’s not usually essential to stick to that brand as long as you get everything else right. Worried about cost? While you don’t need to buy the most expensive battery, bear in mind that the cheapest one may not be best in the long term. Another factor to think about is age. A battery less than six months old is considered ‘fresh’, so be sure to check the manufacturing date before you buy. Once you’ve bought the correct car battery, follow the manufacturer’s instructions (or how-to YouTube videos) on how to remove the old battery and install the new one, making sure you dispose of the old battery correctly.

When your car battery starts showing signs of trouble, it’s best to replace it as soon as you can. Buying a battery from a store before your old one dies will usually be cheaper and much less hassle, than dealing with it when you get stranded later on down the line.
