Today on GoTrend we’re bring you some handy information on an item that’s a big part of our lives, but seemingly we forget just how important they are! Good quality car batteries have an impressive lifespan of up to five years, but we never think about them or their health until one day our car doesn’t start!
Battery Centre is one of South Africa’s leading battery franchises in South Africa, and the Battery Centre name is synonymous with outstanding service that motorists can rely upon wherever they travel. There are more than 120 Battery Centre outlets across the length and breadth of the country, from Polokwane to Cape Town and Springbok to Durban.
We’ve got some important tips that you might need to consider when replacing your battery :
- Your starter motor is experiencing slow or interrupted turnover.
- Your instrument panel battery light indicates battery discharge for extended periods after the engine is running.
- Your battery seems to lose power quickly in cold or extended starts.
- Your headlights dim at idle.
A battery that is about to fail will often give little or no warning. If you suspect that your battery is failing, have it tested or replaced as soon as possible at your local Battery Centre.
Many people also prefer the assurance of a brand-new battery when replacing it and are not willing to risk the potential damage that can be caused by a faulty refurbished battery. If you’re considering a refurbished car battery, keep in mind that these batteries can malfunction at any time and require more frequent battery repairs and expenses than anticipated.
