Popular Questions Asked
How Long Do Car Batteries Last?
Car batteries on average last about three to five years but, if they're not taken care of, this can be cut down to one or two years.
Not leaving your car unused for lengthy periods is one way to extend your battery life. Performing maintenance like regularly cleaning your battery, testing its voltage, and avoiding excessive use of electronic accessories while your car engine isn't running will all help your battery to last longer as well.
What Drains a Car Battery?
There are many things that drain a car battery. Headlights and interior lights such as the one in your glove box, boot, or even vanity mirror lights.
Drain from electronics like the car stereo, phone chargers, and lights is also made worse when the car is switched off, as the battery isn't being actively charged when the engine isn't running.
Leaving your fob in your car or even nearby it can also drain the battery due to the fob communicating with the car.
If your battery hasn't been maintained and it has corroded connections, this can cause extra drain and damage to the battery. Problems with your alternator will also cause issues with your battery, as it usually helps the battery maintain charge while the engine is on, so keeping your alternator in check will naturally improve battery life.
The way you drive your car can also affect how long your battery lasts. If you take lots of short trips (driving 15 minutes or less) or if you leave your car inactive for long periods, your battery isn't going to be consistently charging and will wear down faster.
How Long Does a Car Battery Stay Charged if Not Driven?
New car batteries will generally keep their charge longer than older ones and can last up to two weeks without being driven. To be safe, you'll want to start your car for at least 15 minutes every week in order to keep the battery charged.
Where Can I Recycle My Car Battery?

How Do Car Batteries Charge?
The car's alternator charges the battery when the engine is on, acting as a generator driven by a belt from the engine. Note that if you are running lots of electronics and lights, you might be using more charge from the battery than the alternator can produce, draining the battery faster than it can be recharged.
What Size Battery for My Car
Repco's Rego Search allows you to input your vehicle's details and see the Repco batteries that will fit your car. Alternatively, you can check your vehicle's manual for the correct battery group size. Getting an undersized or oversized battery can cause issues with how your car runs, so make sure that when you replace your battery you select the right one for your vehicle.
