It’s no secret that a lot of drivers have very little to no knowledge about how their vehicles actually work. We use our cars on a daily basis and we take them for granted however if something were to happen most of us wouldn’t even know where to look. Car batteries play a very important part in the vehicle, which is why we’ve decided to put together a short guide to help you get the most from your car battery.

First and foremost make sure that your battery is secure. You don’t want it to cause any damage to other parts of the engine, which is exactly what’s going to happen if your battery is loose. There are numerous tutorials online that teach you how to secure your battery so we recommend you do some research prior to attempting anything.

Keeping your battery clean is another important thing that many of us simply don’t even think about. It’s simple and rather straightforward to do so if you have never done it before it shouldn’t be too hard. To clean your battery, remove the clams and clean away any dirt or grease that is there. You don’t want to weaken the charge, which is what all the filth is doing. If left unclean for a long period of time the battery will stop working and you will have to pay a lot of money for a new one.

Since it’s winter, you have to remember to keep your battery warm. If you possible, park your vehicle in a thoroughly insulated garage. Whereas a heated garage can result in rust appearing on your vehicle, an insulated one will keep it warm and prevent any damage from occurring.

If you’ve had your battery for a while but can’t afford a new one at the moment, it’s possible to stretch its life by adding some distilled water to it. Again, please do some research before attempting it as it’s better to be safe than sorry.
