How to get the most out of your car battery

A new battery will last, on average, three to five years, but driving conditions, climate and maintenance will affect its lifespan. You can get the most out of your battery by following these tips from AAA. Just remember to wear eye protection and gloves while working on your battery, and never smoke near a battery or allow it to be near sparks or an open flame.

• Keep your battery clean. Periodically pop the hood and look for corrosion on the battery terminals. If you see any, clean it off with a small, stiff brush and a solution of baking soda and water. After removing the corrosion, rinse the battery with water.

• Check to make sure the terminal connections aren’t loose. If they are, tighten with a wrench.

• As your battery begins to age, have it tested occasionally by a AAA Approved Auto Repair shop near you. Testing equipment today can often give you a good sense of how much life a battery has left. That way you can replace it when necessary and avoid being stranded.

AAA battery service is eco-friendly

Car Mobile Battery Service is one of AAA’s most popular membership benefits, with service techs replacing more than 2 million batteries a year. Since 1999, AAA has recycled more than 18 million batteries. Laid end to end, they’d stretch from Miami to Seattle. Old and defective batteries are recycled, saving resources and keeping hazardous waste out of landfills.
