Car Batteries And Extreme Temperatures: Not A Good Combination

It is critical to remember that car batteries and extreme weather does not mix. The two are linked because extreme temperatures often mean the decline of the performance of the battery.

Heat impacts the batteries by corroding the battery from the inside. It can speed up some of the chemical reactions that are essential to the proper use of the battery. However, speeding up those chemicals in this instance is not a positive thing. The battery is designed to perform in a specific way. Start tweaking that and you could end up with a mess on your hands.

Cold weather can literally freeze up the same chemicals in your battery that you need to perform for you. This means that you won't be able to start up your vehicle at all. This is also not the result that any of us look for in our car batteries. Keep those batteries away from extreme temperature exposure as much as possible.
