How To Recondition Battery On Samsung Galaxy S7

With no battery, your car simply is not functional.  One of the most inconvenient things in life is if your car battery suddenly dies unexpectedly!

But the good news is… there are several ways to know if your car battery is on the verge of dying and has to be replaced.   In this guide we will go over 7 hints your car battery is about to die and needs to be replaced or repaired.

Before we begin talking these 7 critical signs, it’s important to remember that if experiencing issues with your car battery, be certain to check the battery connections and cables first because sometimes a faulty connection can seem to be a bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case your car turns over for longer than normal or takes a while to”catch,” it often is because the battery charge is low.  While the starter can be the culprit, most of the time the battery is to blame.  If this is happening regularly, it’s a good sign your car battery is going bad and it could be time to replace your battery or recondition it.

2) Assess Engine Light/Battery Warning Light – The check engine light is always a good indication of something off with your car or truck.  The battery power being weak will trip the check engine light.  Additionally, newer cars have a battery light, like the check engine light. This will only light up if there is a problem with the battery.

3) Age – A car battery life span, in perfect conditions, is about five decades.  

4) Electrical Component Issues –  One sure indication your battery is beginning to fade is if electric components are struggling to operate (such as lighting, windshield wipers, power locks, and windows).

5) Swollen Battery Case – If you look under the hood and your battery case looks swollen, bloated, or malformed; it’s a sign that temperature has influenced the chemical elements of the battery, shortening the lifespan.

6) Smell –  If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs under your hood, this is often a symptom of leaking battery acid. This may damage other engine parts if not addressed immediately.  If you notice this, you may either bring your own battery into a store and have them look at it or you can use our reconditioning steps and do it yourself.

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you are needing to jump your battery to get your car started more than three times a week, it’s time to replace the battery or recondition it.  Excessive jumping can also damage other systems, so it is best to have the battery replaced or fix the battery yourself.

Regular maintenance is important to extend the life of your car battery (and also your vehicle).  If your vehicle battery is showing any of those 7 signs, know that your battery should be replaced or repaired before your car no longer runs.
