Car and Truck Chargers - Brands
If you’ve ever experienced the frustration of having your car battery refusing to start, you’ll understand why keeping a battery charger on hand is always a good idea. A quality car battery charger will keep your vehicle’s battery charged and ready to go whenever you need it.
How to Choose the Right Battery Charger
Not all batteries are created equal, so you need to find a car battery charger that’s the right fit for your needs. There are several things you should consider when purchasing your Car and Truck charger:
- If the battery is going to sit for extended periods of time, you’ll likely want a maintenance free,trickle charger, which will provide incremental power over time to keep the battery charged.
- Pick the right voltage. While most cars will use a 12V charger, some vintage cars and older vehicles will require different voltage output.
- Some chargers are designed to work specifically with AGM or flooded batteries. Make sure you find one that matches what’s under your hood.
Reliable Power for Emergency Situations
Being stuck somewhere with a dead battery isn’t fun for anyone. You can make situations like this less stressful by keeping a portable car battery jump pack or booster cables in your trunk so that you can give your battery the jump start it needs to get you back on the road.
Know When to Replace the Battery
A Car and Truck charger will help extend your car battery’s life, but all batteries die eventually. If you’re consistently running into issues getting your car to start or if it’s been several years since you’ve replaced the battery, a battery charger might not be able to help.
