Temperature Extremes and Your Vehicle's Battery

While many believe that winter is the most common time for vehicle batteries to die, temperate extremes any time of the year are actually the culprit. Here, we want you to have the facts so that you can be informed about the life of your vehicle's battery.

Lead acid batteries are engineered to function in a generous range of temperatures. Performance declines in both cold and hot conditions with capacity dropping up to 20 percent from normal in freezing temperatures. Capacity can drop as much as 50 percent when temperatures reach -22 degrees Fahrenheit which decreases the battery's life.
