Automotive Battery Care in Southampton, Pennsylvania
You turn the key and your car starts, simple as that. You just take it for granted, right up until the day when you go out to start the car and it turns the engine over too slowly to ever catch…and then you hear that disheartening “click…click…click” that means you’re not going anywhere today.
Automotive batteries have barely changed in design for 70 years. They still consist of six cells wired together in series; each cell produces two volts to add up to a total of a little over 12 volts. They use an electrochemical reaction between lead plates and a sulfuric acid electrolyte. As the battery discharges, the electrolyte loses its acidity and the lead plates become covered with sulfate…then when the battery charges again, the pH of the electrolyte is lowered and the sulfate disappears from the lead surface.
Truth is, any battery that can be recharged – such as the one in your phone, laptop or tablet – can only stand so many charge/discharge cycles before it starts to degrade. Extremes of cold and hot put a lot of stress on an automotive battery, and many don’t even last through their entire warranty phase before they fail completely.
At United Tire & Service in Southampton, PA, we’ll help you extend your battery life with service that includes:
- Cleaning the terminals, clamps, and cables of any corrosion. Battery corrosion is a fluffy greenish-white deposit that can actually prevent the battery from receiving or delivering a charge.
- Checking the alternator for charging output
- Checking the battery for reserve cranking power
