Car Battery Prices and Why You May Need a New One

Battery failure is one of the most common problem people run into with their cars, many of us don’t even realize that we can’t use the same one for more than 3 or 5 years and can’t help feeling a little hard done by when their car’s needs replacing. In this article, I’m going to talk about exactly how much money you should be putting up for a new car battery and the reasons it may have died in the first place.
If you have no idea how much a new car battery is going to cost you then I can estimate that it’ll probably fall between $40 and $120, most car battery prices fall within this range. If you want to know exactly how much you need to pay you can check out either the or, they have really great tools which can find the exact battery your car needs to be given just a few details, I really recommend giving them a go, especially if you can’t find your car’s owner’s manual.
Let’s take a look at why you need to replace your battery in the first place. As I mentioned at the beginning a car battery is only going to last 3-5 years, it may just be that your current one is so old that it can’t facilitate a charge for very long now. If you’ve only recently purchased your battery one reason your car might not be starting is because you’ve drained all of the battery’s power by leaving the headlights or air conditioning on, if this is the case you don’t need a new battery you just need to recharge the battery either by using jumper cables or a car battery charger. If your battery’s in really bad condition it may be leaking acid, if this is the case keep away from it, not only can it ruin your garage flooring but it can really do damage to your skin.
