How does temperature affect your battery?

Nothing ruins a morning like getting into your car on a cold winter morning, turning the key, and finding that your car’s battery is dead. Did you know that extreme temperatures can take a toll on your battery? At Interstate Hyundai, we want you to be as informed as possible about your vehicle.

On a cold day, the capacity of your battery drops. When you start your vehicle, the starter draws a huge amount of electricity. The cold temperature can decrease your battery’s energy output, preventing your car from starting, especially if your battery is older. On the other hand, high temperatures can damage your battery and shorten its life. Car battery experts have found that every increase of 15 degrees Fahrenheit can halve your battery’s life.

Come and visit our service center today. Our team of experts can answer any of your battery questions.
