WHY DOES THE BATTERY WEAR?
The battery undergoes natural wear, linked to time and its use. In addition, strong discharges, failure of the electrical circuit or extreme temperatures can cause premature wear.
The operation of electrical consumers when the engine is off (headlights, car radio, air conditioning, etc.) causes a deep discharge.
An alternator that is not producing enough power will not charge the battery properly. On the contrary, an alternator that produces too much energy overloads the battery and wears it out prematurely. Finally, poor connections can lead to current leakage accelerating the discharge.
Extreme temperatures damage the active material, thus reducing the conductivity of the electrolyte (water + acid mixture). The battery is weakened and deteriorating.
