Heat and Cold's Effect on Car Batteries

When it comes to your car battery most people do not want to deal with hassles. They want a car battery that chugs along nicely and does not cause them any problems. This is usually the case- most modern car batteries work very well. There is one situation that throws even the best battery out of wack- extreme weather.

Car batteries operate by combining a chemical reaction in a sealed container. The metals and liquids contained within the battery react together to create a store of electricity that can be drawn upon. When you introduce extreme heat into the situation, it can cause the battery to explode or light on fire. Extreme cold temperatures can slow down this process so much that your battery no longer works.
