Your car’s battery is extremely important, because, without it, the electronic components of your vehicle won’t work, including your starter! That means, unless you happen to be driving a Model T or another vehicle over a century old, you’re not going anywhere without a functional battery.

Or maybe you just know that you’ll probably have to change your battery soon. Either way, the Downtown Auto Specialist can help.

“Can I get a car battery change near me in Burlington, ON?”

Yes, you can. At the Downtown Auto Specialist, we’re happy to provide battery changes for drivers in the Burlington area of Ontario. But when the time comes to replace your battery, what kind of replacement should you choose? The same make of battery, or something different.

Important qualities of batteries

Generally, the greater a battery’s capacity, battery life, and length of the battery warranty, the more a battery cost. But it’s not always necessarily the right move to simply pick the battery with the highest capacity and longest estimated battery life.

What to look for in a vehicle battery

The right battery for your automobile should fulfil certain criteria, such as:

  • Sitting properly in the battery tray. A battery that doesn’t sit level can become damaged from excess vibration.
  • Meeting or exceeding the Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) rating recommended in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
  • Possessing enough Reserve Capacity (RC). The RC determines how long accessories can run while leaving enough power to start the engine.
  • Having large capacity, especially if you drive in the extreme cold. This applies to Burlington where the winter temperatures are occasionally brutal. The lower the temperature drops below freezing, the less effective a battery’s performance typically is. For example, if a battery operates at 100% of its cranking power at +27ºC, by the point that the temperature drops down to -18ºC, it’s power will have decreased by 40%. Even if it was fully charged.

Important automobile battery information

Today’s vehicles are more efficient than ever, but they can also be a lot more demanding of their batteries. This is mostly due to the many more internal systems they have than vehicles of the past.

A regular battery maintenance schedule can keep your battery and your vehicle’s electronic functions in peak working condition. Summer a favourable season of many Canadians, can be very taxing on batteries, because of higher temperatures, air conditioning, and stressful conditions the heat places on engines and wear on your vehicle’s batteries.
