Check Before Buying

Check the following when you buy a new battery:

  1. Ensure your current battery has failed. Sometimes, your vehicle's electrical system could have a problem. Hence find out the root cause of the problem (call us or your mechanic to check the root cause of the problem).
  2. Refer battery group size recommended by your manufacturer in the vehicle manual. Battery group size indicates the battery size that will best fit the physical dimensions of your vehicle. Many vehicles can accommodate more than one group size
  3. Before fitting the new battery, check the electrical system of your vehicle.
  4. Check the cranking voltage which should be more than 9.8 volts across the battery terminal
  5. Check the alternator charging voltage which should be between 13.8V - 14.5V across the battery terminal
  6. Always opt for a battery manufactured by a good brand.
  7. Compare battery options online and select one with that suits your requirements.& After
  8. Check for warranty when buying a new battery to ensure you're covered in case of unforeseen mechanical issues.
  9. Take your vehicle for regular servicing to ensure all the electricals connecting the battery are in place and there is no sign of leakage or corrosion.
  10. Don't keep the battery idle for too long. Even if you're not using your car, take it out for a spin in 5-7 days or keep the engine on for at least 5 minutes to avoid a flat battery.
  11. Replacement batteries should fit the size and specifications required for a car. Check the car manually if you're unsure about which battery to get or seek help from a technician at your nearest service center.
  12. Ensure you turn off all the lights and electricals every time you get out of the car. This helps in saving power and preserves battery health.
  13. Park your car under covered spaces as too much heat or fluctuating weather conditions affect the battery lifespan.
