You know that Batteries Plus has thousands of batteries available for your home, vehicle or business, but did you know that we offer battery installation too? Keep reading for a full breakdown of which batteries we install and what it will cost you.

Batteries Plus Offers Free Battery Testing

All batteries have a limited lifespan after which they need to be replaced. When a battery begins to die, there's usually a noticeable drop-off in its performance. If your battery is having a hard time holding a charge, that's a good sign that it's nearing the end of its life.

Testing your battery is the best way to determine whether it needs to be replaced. While it's possible to test the battery using a multimeter, that's not always practical. Applications like cell phones, tablets and laptops have batteries that are often difficult to access. Fortunately, there's an easier way. Batteries Plus offers free battery testing at each of our stores. If you're experiencing issues with a battery, just bring it in and we'll let you know if it's time for a replacement. Learn more about our free battery testing service.
