Car Battery Information

Based on lead-acid battery technology, your car battery is made to be reliable even during the harshest environmental conditions. Typically, a car battery will last two to five years before wearing out.

In modern vehicles, there is a warning light on the dashboard/ gauge cluster which notifies the driver when the battery is not being adequately charged by the alternator.
