A car battery replacement may not cost much in the big picture, but you’ll still want to get the most life possible from your battery on Concord roads. Here are a few tips to help get the most out of your car battery:

  • Don’t just take short trips around Rock Hill, SC, as they don’t allow much time for your battery to charge
  • Ensure the battery is securely fastened in its compartment at all times
  • Don’t leave the exterior or interior lights on when the engine is off
  • Keep the exterior of the battery clean, don’t allow corrosion to build up
  • When possible, park your car in a shady area to prevent the engine from overheating
  • Check your voltage on a monthly basis (it should consistently read at around 12.7 volts or higher)
  • Don’t let your car sit for long periods of time –– take it out for a 30-minute drive at least once per week to maintain the battery’s charge
