Are you finding you need to replace your car battery every one to two years? 

The job of a car battery is to start the engine and run the electrical equipment and smartly it recharges as you drive. 

Did you know that if you don’t use your vehicle for long periods of time or your battery becomes corroded, it will seriously affect the battery’s lifespan? 

Priorslee Motor Services in Telford is a reputable garage run by qualified and experienced mechanics who are fully trained in handling car batteries safely.  They offer five top tips on how to extend the battery life of your car:

  • Make sure you keep the battery terminals clean.  Inspect them on a monthly basis for signs of corrosion.
  • Start the car and drive it before operating car accessories.
  • Keep the battery secure and free from vibration. Batteries that shake can become damaged and short circuited and cause damage to your car.
  • Keep the battery insulated from extreme temperatures using a battery insulation kit.  These kits come with new cars already.
  • Invest in a car battery charger that will maintain an optimum charge level when your car is not in use.
