Why your Battery is Important to Vehicle Operation

Put simply, the battery in your car provides for your Kia’s starting power. It also has another key function, working as a surge protector for the onboard computer as well as back-up power when the engine is off for the wipers, stereo, GPS and lights. Kia genuine batteries are essential for your Kia because they provide this electric power to your onboard systems, yes, but are specifically made to ensure your Kia can do so in even the coldest and hottest of temperatures, which we here in Edmonton know all about. Both cold and hot weather can do tough damage to your battery, but Kia genuine batteries are engineered to hold up.

How Long Does a Vehicle Battery Last?

A standard battery in a vehicle will give you service between three and five years. In more applicable terms to what you may deal with day-to-day, think of your smartphone. When your phone battery goes from 100% down to 5%, then you charge it back up to 100%, that’s one cycle. A traditional flooded automotive battery can produce up to 40 – 60 cycles, which equal that rought 3 – 5 year timeframe.
