The battery is one of the automotive parts that you can change as “Do It Yourself (DIY). And if you choose to have it professionally installed, the labor cost for the battery change is not expensive. The cost of a battery ranges between TT$ 600.00 TO $2000.00, depending on the types of automobiles, the purpose and the varying size of batteries.

There are several advantages of changing batteries;
This might be an astonishing fact but it is true. The new battery gives more power to the engine. It ignites the plugs stronger and stabilizes electricity supply much better than the used battery. It is often the case that few people feel the difference of oil change if it is changed to new. But most persons realize the big difference of benefits generated from installing a new and fit for purpose battery.
It is natural that the new battery eases the worry about the sudden death of the old battery. When a battery come to the end of its life, you feel uneasy when the battery runs out. With a small amount of investment, this kind of worry will be wiped away.

The battery life vs. the discharged battery:
There is a big difference between the death of a battery and the expression “The battery goes flat”. The death of battery literally means that the battery comes to the end of its life. It cannot recharge the electricity inside.
“The battery goes flat” means that the battery has lost electricity inside and is still rechargeable if the electricity is supplied. It means the battery will become chargeable if the electricity is supplied from a sound battery as shown in the image below, or recharged;
Remarks: The two batteries should have the same voltage; 12V vs. 12V.
