Should the testing show that your battery is approaching end of life, it’s time to think about the replacement while there is still time. To make this process simple:
Three Major Things to Note Before Selecting your Battery
- First check your owner’s manual to determine what battery size and specifications you need for your vehicle’s make and model. If you cannot locate this information, we are always more than happy
to lend a hand.
- Think about your driving needs and consider your environment and typical commute. Higher temperatures are hard on car batteries, so if you’re living in a hotter climate be sure to purchase a battery that is built for warmer weather. Also, if your commute involves short, stop and go trips, a battery with a longer life will better suit your needs.
- Check the replacement warranty for the battery you want to purchase, and always keep the receipt. Most batteries will offer a free replacement guarantee if the battery gives out before the warranty date.
AGM batteries last up to twice as long as conventional batteries, if not more. These batteries tolerate extreme vibrations, are completely leak and spill proof, can handle both temperature extremes, and they will notdischarge when idle. AGM sets the new standard in battery life, durability and safety, and is installed from the factory on many newer vehicles. Bosch Premium Power
