Your Car or Van's Battery

Without your car battery, you probably won't be able to go very far. It is one of the most common causes of cars not being able to start, and is a crucial component responsible for many of the functions within your car - which is why it is so important that you ensure it is in good shape. Problems occur when your electronics have been strained such as leaving lights on overnight, or overusing the radio whilst the car ignition is turned off.

Can I charge my battery?

If you find that your battery is flat and your engine isn't starting, you can still avoid replacing it, but you will need to use a battery charger to get it working again. There are various types of charger available, but you would need to find one compatible with your model, and take some steps to ensure proper charging by following the instructions safely.

What type of battery do I need for my car?

Choosing a battery can be challenging for more inexperienced drivers, but you can simplify it by considering a couple of factors. These include; its size, should it be wet or dry cell, whether it is worth investing in quality batteries with AGM technology, or checking to see what your budget can afford. First and foremost, you should always check your vehicle manual or speak with a mechanic to find out what original equipment is needed, or about the manufacturer's recommendations.
