battery

A car battery is often considered the heart of a vehicle. The battery powers up all the electrical accessories of the car, along with the ignition system and the starter motor. The evolution of cars has seen an increase in the number of electrical components in them, which has, in turn, resulted in an increased demand for batteries.

Nowadays, most batteries are usually sealed and don’t require much maintenance. That is why many drivers tend to take it for granted and assume it will continue to work. However, the fact of the matter is that your car battery will falter sooner or later. It might not be able to keep its charge long enough or sufficiently power up the components. When that happens, you can bring your car to Matmore Motor Parts for repair or replacement of your battery.

The battery is a crucial car component

You can locate the battery of your car under the bonnet. It connects to one negative and one positive terminal. With usually 12 volts of power, it powers up the lights, stereo and other electrical parts of your car. Most importantly, however, it provides the spark for igniting the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. This ignition starts up your engine.

Get your battery checked out regularly

If your car battery is dead, you won’t be able to start up your car. In fact, one of the major reasons for car breakdown is a faulty battery. If you don’t get your battery checked regularly, you will only get to know of its malfunctioning when your vehicle doesn’t start.

The risk of a car battery breakdown increases as it gets old. In general, you have more cause for concern if the battery is five years or older.  If you are concerned about the current condition of your battery, you can consult our technicians at Matmore Motor Parts. They will check your battery and see if it is in a proper working condition. If needed, we can provide a replacement for your car battery at Spalding.

Different types of batteries

Most cars come standard with lead-acid batteries. These batteries can usually start up your vehicle for almost 20,000 times before they require replacing. A silver calcium battery, on the other hand, starts up a car around 50,000 times. They are more expensive than their lead-acid counterparts.

We offer both these types of car battery at Spalding and more. Choose from a range of options we provide at Matmore Motor Parts.
