Keeping Your Battery Alive in Extreme Temperatures

While extreme temperatures can cause problems with the battery, there are things that you can do in order to make sure that your battery is able to survive the winter and the summer. As with other components in the vehicle, a battery is going to last longer with care.

The temperature that does the battery in depends on a few factors. One factor is the strength of the battery. If the battery is weak, then it can freeze at 32 degrees Fahrenheit. A fully charge battery can withstand temperatures down to -76 degrees Fahrenheit. Another thing you want to do is run tests on your batteries.

Among the types of tests you want to run is the load test. You also want to check the charge of the battery as well as the electrolytes of the battery so that you can be sure that it is going to manage the temperatures.
