What happens when you get the wrong car battery?

Car-makers design their vehicles to fit the specifications and standards with unmatched precision. Therefore you should always ensure to use the right battery size to optimize the performance of your car.

Trying to fit a battery designed for a Mini into a vehicle as powerful as a Hummer is like the classic case of a square peg and a round hole. It simply doesn’t work! Besides, the wrong size battery can lead to a host of problems for your vehicle. 

Using a Battery That is Too Small

This could lead to starting problems! An undersized battery may not have enough to power your car’s accessories, especially while your vehicle is turned off. Even just listening to the radio for an extended period may cause your battery to go dead (no more car karaoke!). Frequent short trips tax almost all types of batteries, but they take an even larger toll on small batteries. If you run errands all day, driving short distances, your battery does not get a chance to fully recharge. Instead of carrying a share of the load, the battery is continually drawing a charge. This could cause alternator overheating and long-term damage to your car.

What Happens if I Use a Battery That is Too Large

Even if it somehow physically fits in the compartment, an oversized battery could cause a host of other issues! Manufacturers precisely match their alternators and batteries to the vehicle’s power requirements. A mismatched battery/alternator combo could cause your alternator to overheat and shorten its life!

The wrong car battery size will also eventually damage your car’s alternator (leading to more problems).
