What Extreme Temperatures Can Do to Your Car Battery

All car batteries are not created equal. Some are only good for so many miles, while others are good for certain temperatures. Stop at Virginia Select Auto and let us answer all your automotive questions, including battery-related concerns.

Many drivers do not realize that battery life can be affected by extreme temperatures. A California resident would not want the same type of battery as a Wisconsin resident because of the differences in temperatures. The battery’s capacity can drop 20 percent in freezing temperatures. Extreme high temperatures can increase the battery’s capacity. This is why it’s so important to have your battery checked periodically and buy batteries compatible with your location’s temperatures.

If your battery has been giving you problems, or you’re in need of a new battery, visit us in Amherst, VA. We’ll take care of your automotive needs and have you back on the road in no time.
