Harsh Environmental Temperatures Harm Vehicle Batteries

When a battery is used in places that have extreme conditions, its power cells can develop energy inefficiencies. If you want to protect a car battery in a practical and efficient way, you'll need a strong defensive strategy that focuses on temperature management.

Within a standard car battery, there is a chamber that holds lead acid. This acid substance performs well in many environments that have reasonable temperatures. However, when the temperature around a lead acid battery is too hot or cold, performance problems will occur. In most cases, when a lead battery is used in very cold, icy environment, its overall capacity decreases by 20 percent.

In order to avoid issues that can delay the process of starting a vehicle, you must implement procedures to keep frost and high heat away from your battery. Most lead acid batteries perform well when they are used in environments that are over -22 degrees.
