Why? The battery can be damaged just as easily by heat as by cold – either way, if this happens it can leave a driver stranded.

Andrew Markel explains that battery inspections are critical to ensuring your customers are able to complete their road trip.

During any spring or summer inspection, always take a temperature reading of the battery to determine its strength – and, remember, cold-cranking amps are measured at 0° and cranking amps are measured at 32° F. If your shop is between 72° and 80°, it may give an overly optimistic rating of the battery. That’s why you need a proper tester that tests the capacity of the battery and can compensate for the battery’s overall condition.
