Classic Car Battery

classic car batteriesA classic or antique, car is something a person of all ages can enjoy. It doesn’t matter if you had one when you were a teenager, or if you’re a teenager now seeing them for the first time - they always bring the oos and the ahhs. They don’t make them like they used to, but they do still make batteries fitted explicitly for these vintage motors. What exactly is different about classic car batteries? What should you look for when choosing the right battery for your classic car? Explore the options and find the best solution to keep your vintage car cruising. 

First things first, it’s best to determine just how much road time the classic car is going to get. A Sunday driver is better than storing it in the garage for months on end since car batteries only have a lifespan of a year to 48 months (and that’s pushing it). If the classic car has been in storage for some time and on initial start-up, it doesn’t want to turn over, 99.9% chance it’s going to be the battery. At this point, it’s essential to select a battery with a very high/highest reserve capacity or one with a very high/highest amp hour rating. 

With classic cars, there are two options for batteries - a wet cell and a gel cell. A wet cell is available in two different types; serviceable and maintenance free which is self-explanatory. Gel batteries are more expensive than a wet cell, but they offer extra protection if your classic car does not get driven often. With a gel cell battery, you can afford to store your car and not experience the effects of corrosion and sulfating of internal plates like you would with a wet cell. 

It is essential to pay attention to your terminals as well. The types used can affect the battery’s starting power. Cheaper terminals that are typically made of lead are not recommended as they don’t work as well and will end up costing you more in the long run. They’re prone to corrosion and tend to loosen in short periods. One would be much better off with brass terminals as they hold a tighter connection with the classic car battery. 

A classic car can run like it’s fresh off the lot, but it all starts with a battery to make it run. Make sure you’re making the right choices for your classic cruising.

I moved and will always buy from here.

On Monday 8-13-18 I sent an email requesting info on batteries for my 36V Ezgo.

In less than an hour I received a phone call from "Scott" who was extremely knowledgeable and gave me great answers to my questions. He instilled so much confidence in me that I abandoned my plan to call and get quotes from three places. Yours was the first business I called. He arranged for an install today 8-15-18 between 1:00 and 2:00. Much to my delight your crew arrived a bit early and within about 20 minutes or so the new batteries were installed the cart was test driven and the work was complete. I didn't get the name of the two gentlemen who did the work but I can assure you they are great ambasssdors for your company. They were friendly, jovial and professional. They made sure I knew I could call anytime I had a question or a problem.

In today's world customer service seems to be lacking at almost every level. Your company had earned a customer for life because of three of your employees and I will share the name "Battery Power" at every opportunity.
