Dead Car Battery

“My Car Battery is Dead”

It happens to all us. You hit the ignition, and nothing. Your battery is dead, and it always seems to happen at the most inconvenient times. There are a number of things that have an impact on the life of your car battery, especially the climate we live in. In New Hampshire, we have cold winters and our car batteries unfortunately struggle to keep up. According to the AAA Auto Research Center, at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, a battery loses about 35% of it’s starting capability. At 0 degrees Fahrenheit, that loss increases to about 60%. At the same time, starting the engine in your car can take up to twice the amount of battery power so its by no surprise that cold weather with a weak battery, can lead to a very frustrating “no-start” situation.
