Having battery troubles? Yeah, we hear you. Almost everyday, we receive calls and comments about batteries that "won't hold a charge" any more. Maybe you've been in that boat before. To clear up a misconception: a battery isn't like a water bottle. You can't use up half now, and then wait and use half later. It's not a tank of electricity. Also, batteries don't "leak" power like water can. What we're dealing with here with a lead acid battery is a plastic box that encases a delicate balance of chemicals which are ready to interact with each other to produce electricity when the load is applied.
If your battery is having trouble producing electricity, chances are, it's a chemical issue.
We will inspect the batteries, take a voltage reading and load test them. These 3 steps will help you determine if your battery is truly bad or getting there. Sometimes it's obvious if there is a failure, but other times it's not. Flooded batteries make it possible to simply look inside the cells and determine if the battery has a physical defect. But for sealed AGM and Gel batteries, it requires testing.
If your battery experiences any of the symptoms described in the steps above, then maybe it's time to replace the battery. We have replacement batteries on hand and the ability to get any within a few business days!!
