Eventually, if you keep your car long enough, your battery will fail and require replacing. When you are forced to replace your car battery, or when you notice that it is starting to lose its charge, think about replacing it with a high-quality car battery. Here are some tips to consider on how to choose a car battery replacement:

There are basically two types of batteries; lead batteries and absorbed glass mat batteries. Lead batteries are the traditional low-cost batteries that most people are familiar with and which do a good job at providing a long charge and at a reasonable cost.

Alternatively, the absorbed glass mat batteries are newer and more expensive options but which can be a better choice, if you use your vehicle mainly for short trips, stop-and-go driving, and is particularly useful for newer cars that have the stop-and-start engines. However, as these batteries cost almost double of the standard batteries, many drivers shy away from purchasing them.

It's an interesting fact that local weather conditions should play a part in the type of battery that you want to select. Some batteries last longer in either colder or hotter temperature. Also, batteries are ranked according to how they stand up to adverse weather conditions.

Ultimately, your auto repair mechanic is a great source of help in selecting a battery that is right for your car, and will also make sure that it's installed properly. When purchasing a new battery, check that the manufacture date is within six months of installation for the freshest source, as unused batteries, even when new, tend to degenerate over time.
