What You Need To Know About Automotive Batteries & OUR CLIMATE.
Edmonton has an average of 50 Degrees Celsius difference from season to season and that's not good for batteries. So far we have had hundreds of calls in 2018 that sound like " I went out to start my car this morning and all it did was make a clicking sound, I think my battery is dead". At Good News Auto we can help you get back on the road fast. But before we do, we do what is called an A.V.R test. A.V.R stands for Amps, Voltage and Resistance. When performing an electrical system diagnosis it will be broken down into three main systems. Your starting system, charging system and capacity “battery”. We have seen it so many times when someone has just put in a new battery and 2 weeks later they say it's dead gain. The 3 components of the test are crucial to helping you save money, let us help you today.
The battery in your car hasn’t really changed much for 70 years. Automotive batteries are still a lead-acid design, with six cells that contain lead plates and a hydrochloric acid electrolyte. Each cell produces about two volts apiece; connected in series, they add up to around 12 volts. When the battery discharges, the sulfuric acid in the battery loses its acidity and returns to water again, while the lead plates become coated with sulfate. When the battery charges again, the sulfate on the battery plates returns to the acidic electrolyte solution.
Unfortunately, any battery that can be recharged – such as the one in your phone or laptop – can only stand so many charge/discharge cycles before they weaken. Even the best automotive batteries only last for about three or four years before they start to degrade.
