Batteries lose a great deal of their cranking power in cold weather, which is the reason why battery failure most frequently occurs in winter. Poorly performing batteries often continue to loyally start the engine for months, only to fail the first time they’re exposed to a cold night on the roadside. Unexpected battery failures are expensive and inconvenient, but can be avoided with the right approach to battery maintenance. Exide Technologies offers tips on how to keep your battery in top condition throughout the winter months.
Exide Technologies has launched an app to aid workshops when testing batteries. It enables technicians to analyse battery test results and provide customers with battery replacement options within five minutes.

It adds that this solution is the first of its kind on the market.
