Jim Lewis Tire & Wheel Vehicle Maintenance Tips and Videos: Making a Battery Last Longer

Posted December 11, 2015 09:17 AM

One thing all Jefferson City car owners can do to extend the life of their battery is to keep it clean. A greasy, dirty battery holds in damaging heat. Same goes for removing corrosion from the terminals. Jim Lewis Tire & Wheel can help maintain your battery.

Allowing your battery to be deeply depleted – like from using your headlights when the engine is off – is very dangerous to your battery. Most automotive batteries can only take that about 10 times before they are ruined.

Also, making sure you have a full charge every month or so extends battery life. Either an extended drive at freeway speeds or using a battery charger will preserve your battery’s ability to hold a full charge.
