How many times have you arrived at your car to get to work and your car is completely dead? If anything your car clicks at you as your turn the key as if laughing at you for leaving the lights on all night, even though you’re running late for an important appointment. This is what car batteries can do to you, but do not worry thankfully they can be started quickly and even replaced at an affordable price.
My saving grace is my recovery company, I am probably their worst nightmare because I have a bad habit of forgetting the car lights on or not closing doors properly, leaving the battery to drain for extended periods. I think my neighbours even keep their jumper cables by the front door they are so used to me knocking for assistance.
While my car always starts first time, eventually this is going to put strain on the battery and it will need to be replaced, so you can imagine my pleasure when I just did a search one day to see how much money I was wasting every time I left the lights on. Car batteries aren’t as expensive as you may think and when you rely on your car regularly it’s something you cannot be without.
Check Your Battery Regularly
There are ways to check the battery, see how it’s doing and clean it off. You should check for corrosion, frayed cables and dirt and get this all cleaned after unplugging the battery from the car. Dirt can get into the connectors, but it’s leaving the lights on and a non-running alternator that will leave you with a flat car.
The frustration and panic sets in when you realise you are stuck and cannot go anywhere, it always happens to me when I’m in a major rush to get somewhere, normally to an important appointment. If I’m just heading up to the shops my car starts first time every time, but that’s how things go, so being prepared with jumper cables in my boot and the recovery companies number on speed dial is the best way for me to manage what my car battery can do to me.
Finding affordable car batteries is so easy; they are what helps you get to where you need to go each and every day and with the right amount of car they can be long lasting.
