Battery Maintenance

Getting the Best Car Battery Prices


Bookmark and Share

Car batteries can be fairly expensive, so it is a good idea to take a little time to research car battery prices before you set out to replace the battery in your vehicle. As with most car parts, car battery cost is proportional to the quality of the battery, and there is little variation in price among batteries of the same type and quality. This means that the most important variable that will determine the price of your car battery replacement is what kind of battery you buy. Although some battery providers offer different kinds of deals. So to find the best deal for you, you should pay more attention to the kind of battery you are looking for than where you are going to get it.

What Quality of Battery Do You Want?

Usually, when you see a difference in price between two batteries of the same kind, it is because less effort was taken to ensure the quality of the cheaper battery. You may be tempted to buy the cheapest battery that will work in your car, but this may end up costing you more in the long run because it will probably have to be replaced sooner.

Cold Cranking Amps

Cold cranking amps, or CCA, is a measurement of a battery's ability to start the car at 0 degree temperatures. Higher CCA batteries are more expensive, but better at starting cars in the cold. If you live in a cold climate, it may be a better idea to choose a more expensive battery with a higher CCA measurement.
