What is the life span of the car battery?

 

 

As a guide, the car battery should average last for 18 months with normal vehicle use. However, batteries of vehicles listed below may have a shorter lifespan:

  • vehicles with very low annual mileage
  • vehicles that are used only occasionally
  • vehicles that are used mainly for very short trips

This is because the battery of such a vehicle is unable to be fully charged by the alternator. The frequent low state of charge and our unfavourable tropical climate will result in a decline of battery life span.
