What to Consider When Buying a Battery

All batteries, no matter what type of vehicle you own, have a limited life, generally of three to four years. It's a good bet that you will have to replace the battery at least once and possibly several times during the time that you own your vehicle. Here is what you should consider.

For a quality car battery, expect to spend at least $100 to $150. If a superior quality lithium battery is more to your liking, then expect to spend more. However, if your vehicle is older, then you may want to go with less expensive alternatives if you don't plan to keep it long.

Choosing the right brand is also important. Look for brands that provide information such as CCA ratings, cranking size, and life expectancy. If you plan to keep your vehicle for quite a few years, it may be worthwhile to buy a more expensive battery.
