Five Types of Automotive Batteries

Five types of automotive batteries

When you go to purchase a battery for your car, you will soon realize that there are many from which to choose. Knowing your car and understanding the different types of car batteries helps to ensure that you purchase the right one. At Battery World, we are here to guide you through this process. The following are five types of batteries that might be right for your car:
  • Absorbed glass mat – These have a lead-acid design and a fiberglass separator. They are long-lasting and resistant to freezing. Because of the charge they release, they are able to provide great amperage in a smaller case.
  • Calcium – The benefit of this type of battery is that the fluid loss is greatly reduced due to the way it is constructed. However, overcharging it can create some serious damage, which means you have to be very careful and not let it die.
  • Deep cycle – These are generally used on small carts or electric vehicles. The power lasts for a long time, but the discharge rate is high, so they could run down more quickly if used in larger cars. Driving is how they charge, so if you don’t drive a lot, this might not be the right choice.
  • Flooded – Flooded batteries have two subgroups. Sealed do not require any maintenance. Conventional will need to have distilled water to replace the electrolytes over time. It’s not a hard job, but it does need to be watched.
  • Lithium ion – These are often used in limited-edition cars or vehicles that are high performance. They are great as a fuel-efficient option for electric cars, but they’re also one of the most expensive products you can get.
