A Closer Look at Car Battery Ratings

When purchasing a new battery for your car, it's important to look at several parameters. The cold cranking amps (CCA) number is particularly crucial if you live in a region with a cold climate. This universal rating provides an accurate estimate of a car battery's performance in freezing weather. In fact, the CCA refers to the maximum current that a lead acid battery could generate when the temperature is zero degrees on the Fahrenheit scale. The electrical output must be sustained for at least 30 seconds at a constant voltage rating of 7.2 V. A new battery pack is supposed to operate on 12 V in normal temperatures. A durable battery must have a high CCA label that guarantees reliable performance in extremely low temperatures.
