It’s surprising how little many people really do know about how their cars work and the type of hardware that goes into them. I suppose it’s understandable, all we need to do is pass a driving test to use one and many of us are too busy to take note of the detailed mechanics behind how cars actually work. In this article I’m going to help you out and provide you with some information about how a car battery works, along with an explanation of how much you should expect to pay.
If you find yourself in need of a new car battery I would suggest that you visit Sears, this is because they deal in only the freshest batteries so optimum performance is guaranteed. You can check out the autozone.com for a quote on how much you should expect to pay for your cars battery, car battery costs usually range between $40 and $120. Most people don’t know this but often times the battery of a vehicle won’t exceed more than 20% of its maximum capacity at any one point, this is hard to believe seen as though they still need to be replaced every 3 years or so.
The reason car batteries don’t always utilize all of their reserve capacity is because they aren’t really used for that long during the driving process. The battery gives a brief surge of power to flip the engine when you switch on the ignition and that’s it, the alternator steps in after this and feeds the engine any additional power it needs during the journey and recharges the battery simultaneously. RV batteries work a little differently, they need power from a battery constantly and therefore require ones with greater reserve capacities.
