How do I keep my battery from dying?

  4. Get routine battery servicee, keep an eye on its remaining capacity and identify any parasitic drains.

  5. Keep your battery free of corrosion, which diminishes power and leads to needing car battery replacement sooner.

  6. If you tend to go on a lot of very short trips around town, offset this by taking longer trips on occasion to help make sure you give your battery a chance to reach a full charge.

Can humidity cause a car not to start?

Not typically. However, humidity is known to have a negative effect on batteries, especially older ones. When there's lots of moisture in the air, oxidation occurs more easily and having corrosion around the terminals diminishes battery power faster.

Is buying a used car battery a bad choice?

Even if you're shopping for cheap car batteries in Houston, we recommend buying new. Car and truck batteries are not pricey compared to other vehicle parts, so it's worth paying a little more for added confidence rather than buying a cheap used battery with a questionable history. There are no guarantees that used car batteries will last even a few weeks if it turns out they were tested incorrectly. Taking the chance is up to each driver, but if you want more peace of mind - and a warranty - a new battery is the better choice.
