If the memories from that elementary school science lesson about how batteries work are a little fuzzy, here’s a recap: batteries store chemical energy that is changed to electric current that is used to do work.
When you’re talking flashlights and other handheld devices, replacing those AA or AAA cylinders is no big deal.
But when it comes to car batteries, replacement – or recharging – is a horse of a different color.
Those heavy squares with the plastic-capped terminals are nothing to trifle with, so let the professional staff at Advance Auto Parts help you determine whether your vehicle’s battery needs a charge or whether it’s time to replace.
In fact, come to Advance and they’ll check the battery, starter and alternator for free – no appointment necessary.
Do-it-yourselfers can recycle old batteries at Advance and get a $10 gift card good on future in-store purchases.
Those batteries are filled with sulfuric acid, a caustic and flammable substance. Use safety goggles and gloves to protect yourself in case of an accident.
Check your battery every so often to make sure the terminals are free of corrosion, there’s no leakage and the battery itself is properly seated and secure.
There are many choices for batteries, and the staff at Advance can help you decide which type is best for you.
Whether you’re replacing your vehicle’s battery or you need a battery for a golf cart, lawn mower, motorcycle or watercraft, check with Advance Auto to get just the right type for your application.
