Why do Car Batteries Die in the Dead of Winter?

Just when we can least afford it you guessed it…it happens!  You are stuck in freezing weather with a dead car battery.  Winter is a fairly common time for car batteries to die, but you know that.  Even though the hot weather is a real battery killer, for a number of reasons, cold weather is also hard on car batteries.

But, here is the real culprit…temperature extremes.  According to Industrial Battery Products, lead acid battery capacity drops about one-fifth from normal in freezing weather, then goes down to about 50 percent of normal when temperatures sink to about -22 degrees Fahrenheit.  While KC may not experience something THAT extreme it will be bitter cold.

A dead battery is not just inconvenient…it can be downright dangerous!  DO NOT get caught out in the elements this winter.  Make an appointment at you Kansas City Kansas car battery professional Able Auto Service.  The A-Team will make sure that your car’s battery will be one of the least of your worries.  Stop in 837 Osage Ave. or call (913) 321-1030.
