With the vast array of auto batteries on the market, choosing the right one can be confusing. A basic consideration is the physical size of the car battery, and your vehicle manufacturer’s requirements. Cost is another consideration.
Maintenance-required car batteries are inexpensive, but usually don’t last as long as maintenance-free batteries. A vehicle that sees off-road duty or severe service requires a stronger casing to prevent lead plate failure.
Car batteries are electrical storage units that convert chemical energy to electrical energy. The battery in your car is known as a lead-acid battery. The acid, or electrolyte, reacts with the lead plates inside the battery and this produces electricity.
