3 Ways to Maximize Your Truck Battery Life

We all know that while your truck is rollin', you're earnin'. So unexpected battery failure can cause major disruption for your trucking operation. Follow these three tips to maximize the life of the batteries you already own so you won't have to replace them sooner than anticipated.


Commercial trucks with increased battery life


  1. Keep all your batteries clean and dry Dirt and grime can build up on batteries over time, so periodically inspecting the batteries can prevent possible poor connections or corrosion.

  2. Check the battery charge regularly By regularly testing your batteries to see if the battery is being overcharged or draining too quickly, you can identify any issues with the battery’s performance before they become too severe.

  3. Minimize extreme weather exposure High temperatures can cause bloating of the battery case and prematurely age the battery. Low temperatures can cause the battery to lose a portion of its charge.


By following these three measures, you will extend your truck's battery life and prolong the immediate need to replace batteries, keeping you on the road.
