Car batteries are the power underneath the hood of your car. It provides electricity needed for door locks, sliding windows, lights, and other car accessories. Your car is dead, the moment your battery dies. When it comes to car batteries, Casey Automotive has the selection and expertise to match the right battery with your vehicle.
Cold-cranking amps (CCA) measure the battery’s ability to start your car even on an extremely cold weather. During freezing condition, your car will be hard to start (or to ignite) because the car’s engine oil thickens and chemical reactions, in turn, slow down.
The cold-cranking amps also refer to the number of amps a battery will be able to support for 30 seconds at 0 degree temperature (until battery voltage reaches below minimum level).
Car batteries with a high number of CCA are better; particularly to those vehicles being driven in a cold climate. A higher cold- cramping amps assure that your car’s engine will start obediently even on snowy mornings.
