Get an Outrageously Dependable Interstate Battery!

Old Man Winter can be tough on any vehicle, but the battery, specifically, takes a beating. Your vehicle’s battery loses 33 percent of its power when the temperature dips below freezing, and over 50 percent of its power when the temperature falls below zero.

With cold weather right around the corner, Gale Kimbrough, Technical Services Manager with Interstate Batteries, recommends getting an outrageously dependable Interstate battery and offers the following battery winterizing tips so you aren’t left out in the cold.

“Dead batteries are very common this time of year and we want area residents to know how to prevent a stalled car. When temperatures become colder, turning over an engine can take up to twice as much current as needed under more favorable conditions and low temperatures can significantly decrease battery output, ” Kimbrough said.

Expert Advice on Winterizing Your Battery

  • Seek Professional Help—for your batteries, that is. These aren’t your typical AA batteries, so it’s important to have the battery and electrical system checked by a professional. Sometimes the naked eye cannot detect the presence of corrosion because it is hidden under the metal between the connection and the post.
  • Protect Your Battery from Mr. Freeze. The cold weather can dramatically reduce a person’s energy level and it can do the same to a battery’s available starting power. It’s a good idea to have your car’s starting and charging system tested every six months.
  • Charge It. Use a battery charger to maintain charge levels and keep the battery in good condition. According to Kimbrough, a fully charged battery will not freeze until -76°F; however, a fully discharged battery could start to freeze at 32°F.
  • Small Maintenance Chores are Necessary. Preparing your car for the winter doesn’t end with the battery itself. You need to inspect your battery cables, posts, and fasteners. Make sure your cables are in good shape and are secured firmly to the battery.

Winterization Checklist

To maximize protection against cold-weather conditions, now’s the time to make sure you not only winterize your battery, but your vehicle too.
