All vehicles need a car battery to start its engine. It is also used in giving the power for the ignition, electrical lighting, and other car accessories. The car battery is an important part of the car that is why, during the winter months a battery check-up is necessary. You may encounter car problems and engine stoppage when the battery is in bad shape. Well-maintained batteries can last for years. There are a few options when it comes to car batteries and there is no difference in what they do but the cost will vary depending on the make you buy. The three main brands used are Exide which come with a 3 yr guarantee, Lion again with a 3 yr guarantee and then the Bosch model which comes with a 4 yr guarantee and as it is a make more commonly heard of today it will be slightly higher in price compared to the other makes on the market. Prices will vary depending on the make and model of the vehicle ranging from around £40+vat up to £80+vat. Here at AE Services in Sutton we can supply and fit a new battery if needed, while you wait.
