The main purpose of a car battery is to start up a vehicle and keep running it. The electrical energy which is essential in making a car work is found in the battery. Almost all batteries work for 5 to 7 years but for your car battery to last this long, you must make sure that you keep it on a frequent maintenance schedule.

Here is why you should maintain your car battery.

· To avoid losing large amounts of charge or even all its charge since the car usually uses a specific amount of the batteries charge for charging other devices.

· Battery maintenance helps maintain battery power and increase its lifespan.

· Cleaning battery terminals helps strengthen the circuit between the battery and the car’s electrical system.

· To decrease chances of having a dead battery; then it’s advisable to park your car in a garage or an area that will lessen the effects of wind and frost to keep the car battery warmer reducing the possibility of a dead battery.

· For batteries that are stored for an extra period, only battery maintenance will help prevent damage. Car owners are advised to use a battery maintainer to monitor the battery and keep it at full ability during storage.

Note that batteries contain sulfuric acid which can cause severe burns, and hydrogen-oxygen gases that cause explosions. Get more tips on battery maintenance on


Hey guys it’s me Danny I’m a battery fanatic. Since I was younger, I have always been into batteries. when I was younger, I used to take 9 volts and lick them to cause a static shock to my tongue, yea I know I was crazy but right there I found my first hobby and love. When I turned 18, I opened an automotive shop in Staten Island NY. I was doing great until 2006 when the market fell. I opened Auto Battery Chargers Online Blog and the rest was history. Now I’m retired driving around my Lambo and blogging on battery tips and maintenance.
