There are 2 common car batteries which have different features.
1. AGM batteries are popular now especially in modern cars, they don’t spill even upside down as they don’t have any excess electrolyte. However, they are considered heavy, and caution is needed when installing them.
2. Calcium battery is considered low maintenance as it has double the lifespan of a normal battery and is considered inexpensive. Their battery antimony is made of calcium, yet they usually require a higher charge of voltage to provide the same level as an antimony battery.
There are many more types of batteries, gel batteries, spiral coil batteries, and deep cycle batteries each with different features.
Each car needs a specific battery size that fits whether in its hood or in some cars the trunk. The size of the battery doesn’t indicate its power as many factors play a role in the power of the battery. Hence, a big battery doesn’t surely mean that it’s stronger, and the size only refers to the height, length, and width of the battery.
Reasons for a Short Battery Life
First, 3 factors affect the battery’s lifespan, not using your car and keeping it parked for a long while can weaken the battery, so we recommend driving your car every day for a while to avoid this. Something we usually do is forget the car light overnight or even keep the ignition on unaware of its deep effect of weakening the battery and shortening its lifespan. The third factor is weather; to elaborate, living in a hot country may cause the battery to wear down faster than living in a cold place.
Signs of a Damaged Battery
There are some signs you can watch out for as they indicate your battery is damaged. When the engine takes longer to start this may mean that the car battery is getting weak, the interior light not being as bright as before, a bad odor or smell from the battery, and battery swelling. Some of these signs call for an instant change of batteries or that you should be cautious because the fluid in the battery is low.
