Summer is a tough time for vehicles. High heat can take a serious toll on the batteries in cars and trucks, cutting their life expectancy by as much as half. If your business maintains its own fleet of vehicles, you know how disruptive it can be when one of them goes down. If you're tired of constantly replacing the batteries in cars and trucks, Batteries Plus can help. We can save you both money and maintenance time by recommending the best batteries for your vehicle needs. Plus, we offer key fob replacement, free battery testing and other services designed to help keep your vehicles running smoothly.
High temperatures can cause the water in your battery's electrolyte to evaporate. When this solution gets too low, it exposes the battery's plates, causing them to sulfate. This causes a whole host of problems, including longer charging times, compromised performance and, if not dealt with, a massive decrease in your battery's overall service life. Even worse, if you live in an area that experiences winter, the damage done to your battery in summer is often made worse once the weather turns cold.
In order to combat the impact of high heat, it's important to maintain your battery. That means charging the battery when your vehicles are out of circulation. Batteries Plus has a full assortment of charging solutions in the following categories:
These chargers feature a higher number of amps for much faster charging. Designed for 4 door sedans, SUVs and trucks.
A battery maintainer monitors your battery's state of charge to prevent it from under or overcharging. It will cut off power when your battery reaches a full charge and begin recharging again once it drops below an ideal voltage.
These portable car batteries allow you to jump start a dead car or truck without the need for a second vehicle. Jump starters are a great way to ensure that your fleet vehicles will remain active even in extreme heat and cold.
If you find that you're constantly replacing your vehicles' batteries, perhaps it's time to upgrade to a better battery. Batteries Plus stocks a number of high-performance AGM battery options. Switching to AGM batteries will provide you with more power and cranking amps than traditional flooded batteries, resulting in longer life cycles and a greater resistance to hot and cold weather.
