Take Care of Your Battery This Summer!

Many drivers think of winter as being the time for dead car batteries, but the hot summer months are actually even tougher on your power supply. This is because heat serves to accelerate chemical reactions, like those that occur within your battery. When a car’s battery is heated up, it is more prone to overcharging. Meanwhile, the internal battery fluid is more vulnerable to evaporation. This can dramatically reduce the battery’s lifespan.

You can protect your battery by keeping it clean. Regularly detach the cables from the terminals and wipe them off, then assure that it is reconnected securely. Should your battery become overcharged or otherwise damaged, visit our Seattle auto body shop.
