An Automotive Battery is a type of rechargeable battery that is used to supply electric energy to an automobile.
The main function of an automotive battery is to provide energy / power for starting, lighting and the ignition system of your car or vehicle's engine.
An Automotive Battery is normally lead-acid, and is made of six galvanic cells connected in series to provide a nominally 12-volt system. Each cell provides 2.1 volts for a total of 12.6 volts at full charge.
Heavy vehicles, such as commercial trucks or tractors, often equipped with diesel engines, may have two batteries in series for a 24-volt system.
How does your automotive battery work?
The car battery provides the jolt of electricity necessary to power all of the electrical components in your vehicle. Talk about a pretty huge responsibility. Without battery power your vehicle won’t start. It is important to ensure you have a Magnacharge Battery product to ensure guaranteed performance for all OEM equipment, electrical demands and the satisfaction of knowing you have the best option and best value.
Let’s take a look at how this Automotive Battery works:
- A chemical reaction puts your car in action: Your battery converts chemical energy into the electrical energy necessary to power your car, delivering voltage to the starter.
- Keep the electric current steady, not only does your battery provide the energy required to start your car; it’s also stabilizing the voltage in order to keep your engine running.
