How Long Do Car Batteries Last?

Replacing a Car Battery

The battery is one of your car’s most under appreciated components. It supplies power to your starter, motor, and the ignition system, and it acts as a secondary power source when the alternator can’t provide enough power. Unfortunately, no battery will last forever. So, how long do car batteries last? The experts at Lone Star Toyota of Lewisville can provide details on the car battery life and the factors that impact the battery’s life.


How Long Do Car Batteries Last in Texas?

Answering how long do batteries last is a tricky question to answer since the car battery life is affected by how much you use the car to the temperatures in the Carrollton and Flower Mound areas. Given normal conditions, five to seven years is the best estimate. These normal conditions include:

  • Temperature and Humidity
  • Full Charge Cycles
  • Power Loading

What Factors Impact the Car’s Battery Life?

When you’re asking, ‘how long should a car battery last?’, you need to provide part of the answer yourself. The car battery life depends on plenty of factors, which means the battery life can be shorter if any of the factors listed below apply:

  • Cold Weather: Most batteries include climate specifications. This means if your car is left unattended in the cold, your battery is going to work harder and wear out faster.
  • Overuse: It should go without saying that asking too much of your battery shortens its life. For instance, if you constantly blast the AC and stereo or use the lights a lot, the batter will suffer.
  • Wear and Tear: Any irregularity in the recharging and discharging process can decrease your battery’s lifespan.
  • Poor MaintenanceRegular professional servicing checks that everything is clean and in good order. Neglecting your battery isn’t going to do it any good.
