Battery Replacement at Brake World in Royal Palm Beach

Posted September 11, 2022 9:48 AM

Hello, welcome to Brake World. Today's focus is batteries. It seems like everything in Royal Palm Beach runs on batteries. Of course, the batteries we're most concerned with here at Brake World are those in our customer's vehicles. Just like the batteries in our smoke detectors or TV remote, drive they wear out and need to be replaced . This can be thought of as the power output used to start a cold vehicle engine. The number of cold cranking amps you need depends on your vehicle and where you live in FL, specifically how cold it is. (Many Royal Palm Beach drivers have first-hand experience trying to start their car on a cold winter morning.) The two factors are that the colder your vehicle's engine is, the more power it takes to turn the engine over to get it started. It has all that cold, sluggish oil to contend with.

The other factor is that the chemical reaction in the battery that creates electrical energy is less efficient when the temperature dips. Let's say it's 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees C) in Royal Palm Beach. At that temperature, 100% of the battery's power is available. At freezing, only 65% of battery power is available, but it requires 155% as much power to start the engine as it did at 80 degrees F (27 degrees C).

As you can see, the colder it gets, more power is needed, but the available power drops.

So if you live where it's cold in FL, you need a battery with more cold cranking amps than you do where it's moderate or hot. The battery that originally came with your vehicle was based on averages. At Brake World, we like to remind Royal Palm Beach drivers that they should always get at least as many cold cranking amps as their vehicle manufacturer recommends but may want to upgrade if they live where it gets real cold.

    Just left and I had to stop and make sure I gave them a review. I had a nail in my tire and had to rush here cuz I wouldn't have made it to work. They are efficient and work quickly. There were other people waiting on services and I was in and out in 30min. Amazing professional staff and management. Thank you!! I will definitely be using this company again.
