As a driver, you know that eventually, every battery is going to die. However, there are many factors that can influence the lifespan of a battery. Knowing these factors can not only help you prepare to change out a battery but also maximize the lifespan of your battery with the proper care.

One major factor in the life of a battery is the temperature. Batteries in the winter are going to have their lifespans shortened because of how cold it is. For one thing, a battery is going to have to work a lot harder in the winter because of the increased demands in cold cranking amperage. There is also the extra use of headlights and windshield wipers.

It is not just the winter that can harm your battery. The high temperatures of the summer can also do a lot of damage to the tires from the evaporation of electrolytes.
