Most car batteries do not get enough charge to keep them healthy and operating at peak performance. It might seem like a chore or even an inconvenience, but regularly charging your car battery can go a long way with a noco battery chargers along with your JsAlternators High Output Alternator.
The problem is that we do not drive our vehicles enough to recharge the battery fully. And when you factor the accessory load and its increasing demands on the battery system, it all contributes to the battery not being sufficiently charged.
There are many benefits to today's lead-acid car battery, but its biggest weakness is its inability not to deteriorate when left undercharged. Batteries consistently kept at a low charge, slowly decline in performance due to a phenomenon called sulfation.
Without getting too technical, battery sulfation reduces the active material - the stuff responsible for performance - inside the battery. The loss of active material is the reduction of the battery's amp-hour capacity. In other words, as the battery continues to lose its active material, it essentially becomes a smaller capacity battery. And as the battery gets smaller and smaller, so does its ability to start an engine.
To think about it another way, imagine you have a new car battery rated at cranking amperage of 1000-amps. Now imagine the impact on starting if reduced to say, 500-amps. As a battery loses capacity - its active material - it loses its ability to deliver power.
Now, this is a simplistic example. Of course, there are other factors to consider when it comes to battery life and performance, such as ambient temperatures or the number of cycles. But keeping your battery at full charge is a sure-fire way to maximize performance.
