How to Test Your Car's Battery with Ease

Most people wait until the last minute to find out that their car's battery is dead. This is a problem because it could leave you stranded, far away from a shop or automotive parts store. You can prevent these situations just by testing your car battery at home. There are multiple ways to do this, but the easiest and fastest is to get a multimeter.

The multimeter is a handy device that lets you measure the voltage of your car battery quickly. You can see how much voltage your car battery is producing and get a readout from the multimeter on whether the battery can hold a charge. Typically, car batteries should be able to hold at least 10 volts for a period of 10 seconds or more.

If your car battery is dying, then you may notice your headlights are dim or that your car doesn't start as fast as usual. In these cases, you should get the battery replaced after doing the test. You can find a number of batteries and deals on auto services at Ray Laks Acura of Buffalo.
