A healthy battery provides reliable engine starting during and after your vacation.
 
Dr. Christian Rosenkranz, head of Power Solutions engineering Europe at Johnson Controls, explains why high temperatures can damage your battery and why, especially in summertime, battery testing is essential.
 
Avoid car breakdown during summer time
Summertime is travel time. Imagine, you are on the road to your holiday destination and suddenly your car does not start anymore because of a weak battery. According to the latest ADAC statistic, 39% of car breakdowns are caused by the battery. This can happen due to a number of factors. Due to hot outside temperatures, most drivers run their air conditioning on the highest level. Additional electricity-consuming functions like mobile GPS units, phone chargers, plug-in coolers and infotainment display screens represent additional work for your car battery. At low speeds, for example, like in a traffic jam, the engine is not generating much energy and the alternator cannot handle your vehicle’s electrical needs. It is then up to your battery to supply energy to power the vehicle and its accessories. To make sure your vehicle has all functionality, test your battery before heading off to your holiday destination at an independent workshop or a parts dealer. Most of the time, the tests are free.
