How Heat and Cold Hurt Car Batteries

Although you may feel most concerned about your car battery when temperatures plummet below zero, you should know that hot temperatures also affect batteries similarly. Lead-based automotive batteries do not stand up well to extreme temperatures because of the energy that is required of them during very hot and cold temperatures.

Extreme cold causes your vehicle to require more energy from your battery whenever you start your car. Plus, car accessories pull more from the battery than it has to give during these times. In the heat, the electrolytes that are a vital component of the battery evaporate quickly, leaving the battery with little energy.
