Understanding how Extreme Temperatures Affect Vehicle Batteries

The expert technicians at Frey Motors want you to be as informed as possible about your vehicle so that you can continue to make well-informed decisions about its care and maintenance. One of the most common issues with any vehicle is a dead battery. Learning how extreme temperatures affect the performance of a battery can help you to head off issues before they begin.

Car batteries die during the winter because of a variety of factors. The increased usage of auxiliary accessories combined with a reduced capacity of the battery and accelerated use of the starter motors all make it more likely that your vehicle battery will not perform in extremely cold temperatures.

In the summer months, warmer temperatures can cut the battery life in half because of the evaporation due to the heating of essential electrolytes. Regular battery maintenance can ensure that your vehicle is ready to handle any temperature.
