Tarneit's One Stop Shop - Car Battery & Air Conditioning Service Specialist

The battery is akin to the heart of a vehicle – it supplies energy to various parts and keeps the machine running. It is important that the car battery be in a healthy condition to enable the smooth and uninterrupted functioning of your car. In case of any concern, it is apt to consult a professional car mechanic from a reputed car service centre. Meanwhile, one can perform the following steps to ensure that the battery is in good condition and its life is extended:

  1. Check the battery's state of charge. Most of the batteries will have a State of Charge Indicator on top which will give you an immediate diagnosis of the battery condition. A more reliable and professional way to check this is with a voltmeter. A charged Century battery will have a stabilised voltage of above 12.5 volts and an SG reading above 1.240.
  2. Make sure that the battery top is clean, dry, and free of dirt or grime, because a dirty battery can discharge across the grime on top of the battery casing.
  3. Inspect the terminals, screws, clamps, and cables to check for any breakage, damage or loose connections.
  4. Applying a thin coating of high-temperature grease to posts and cable connections adds to the protection.
  5. Examine the battery case for obvious signs of physical damage as this indicates that the battery has been overheated or overcharged.
  6. If you possess a maintainable battery, it is important to check if the battery has sufficient electrolyte covering on the battery plates. If topping up is required, do not over fill as the fluid levels will rise when the battery is fully charged and may overflow.
