Can the Temperature Affect Battery Performance?

If the weather has been that much cooler or if it's been sweltering, you've probably noticed some issues with your car battery when starting up or its performance. How much of a problem is this that you might need to prepare for in the future?

All car batteries work based on a chemical reaction that is optimal at 80F. If a battery is exposed to higher temperatures, it is going to wear out that much faster. Capacity that is heat-damaged cannot be restored.

Likewise, during the winter, your battery's action may slow down until it ceases to charge correctly. It is possible for the water in a car battery to freeze as well. Checking your battery's charge regularly is an excellent way to help pinpoint any potential problems awaiting.
