    The importance of knowing your automobiles

    An automobile battery has to serve numerous functions, but the majority of us rely on it to start the vehicle every single day. The numbers and marks on a battery can help you keep informed of the state of your vehicle's health.



    Numbers are important



    When you get a brand new battery, the large number on it generally indicates the months it will last. A battery producer warranties the battery for that amount of time including free replacement. For instance, if a battery had an ?84? on it, it would last about 84 months or seven years. If it had a ?24? on it, it will last 24 months or two years.



    The battery code tells you the date of manufacture. The letter stands for the month the battery was made: B = Feb., C = March, etc. The number is the last number of the year produced. Therefore a battery with H11 was made in August of 2011.



    Info on battery workings



    The life of a battery is decided depending on the number of charges it can take. Batteries in vehicles are meant to be charged and re-charged regularly. This charge happens as the alternator turns the energy from the engine into electrical energy for the batter. The materials in the battery will determine the number of charges it can take. One thing to learn about automobile batteries is that they are continuously being charged and re-charged by the alternator. The alternator stores energy that is converted from the engine and put to the battery. The number of charges a battery can take will determine its battery life. The normal amounts of charges it can take are determined by the materials in the battery.



    Charge limits



    If your battery is losing charge easily, constantly needing to be changed long before it should be, then there could be an issue with how the battery is charging. If most of your automobile trips are less than five miles, you could be draining your battery before it has a chance to totally charge. The connection between battery and alternator could also be shorting out.



    The Howdy Honda Austin TX dealership can offer a helping hand, or a new vehicle.



    Make sure you check the numbers and only replace the battery when it is at the end of the life because that is how long it should be lasting. If the battery is causing problems constantly, check the electrical system out.



    Recycle the battery



    Automobile batteries are worth a lot, even when they are deceased. A recycling house will pay between $2 and $10 to get it from you. Take it to a recycling center rather than simply throwing it in the trash. If you throw it away, it can trigger toxic chemicals to be released in landfills and ground water. That should be avoided.
