Automotive Batteries

Automotive batteriesThe Automotive Battery is the life of your vehicle. If your vehicle is showing signs that your battery’s life might be in danger, you should bring your vehicle into Bobby & Steve’s Auto World for a battery test or a new battery.

Your vehicle’s battery is a type of rechargeable battery that supplies electric energy to your vehicle. Batteries work by storing energy in chemical form that can be released on demand as electricity. The electrical power provided is used by your vehicle’s ignition system for cranking the engine. The automotive battery also provides the power necessary to the electrical components and accessories even when the vehicle’s system isn’t running.

In addition to poor electrical connections, overcharging, undercharging, and heat all contribute to degrading your battery. To keep your battery running strong, it is important to practice good preventive maintenance (especially during hot weather and before cold weather) and to use the battery manufacturer’s recommended temperature compensated charging voltages and procedures.
