Before moving forward let us know the differences;
Normal Battery Vs. Car Battery
A battery of a car is planned for a very long time with an incredibly large volume of current. This current increase is required to turn the engine off at startup. When the motor starts, the alternator gives all the power required for the engine.
So that a car’s battery can live its entire life without ever consuming over 20% of its total energy. This can take a number of years for a car battery to be used. A car battery uses thin plates to raise the surface area to provide a significant amount of current.
The battery of your car is important to ensure that every day your vehicle starts. It ensures the lights are illuminated, the washers is washed away, and the music is played. Whenever your car runs, the battery charges, but it only has so much longevity and must eventually be replaced.
Our following guide will help you to get to know the different types of car battery and the right match for your vehicle.
Types of Car Battery
SLI Batteries: Most of the vehicles on the road are supplied with Starting, Lightning, Ignition or short SLI batteries. As the name suggests, it can accommodate all appliances, such as indoor and outdoor, infotainment devices, etc.
SLI batteries has very short charging time. It is time to charge the battery, so the discharge is slightly smaller. This battery form can provide power in short periods, such as the starting engine of the vehicle.
Deep Cycle Lead Acid Battery: The deep cycle battery is a form of rechargeable lead-acid battery that can drain and recharge repeatedly from most of its strength. Yet overcharging limits the life span of the battery and must therefore be avoided.
This battery type is also used in road lights, electric scooters, golf carts and marine applications.
Lithium-Ion Battery: The last few years we have seen Lithium-ion Battery in a growing trend. Latest hybrid and electric vehicles are equipped with a Li-ion battery. The Li-ion battery saves considerably more charges in contrast with the other batteries.
Another advantage is that these batteries are less efficient than traditional car batteries.
