Which Battery Do I Need for My Renault?

Without a functioning and reliable car battery, no vehicle would have power to start its engine. What that in mind, it is important to make sure your car’s battery is still good, especially with winter here, when the low temperatures can shorten the battery’s lifespan and make a car harder to start in the morning. With so many car batteries available here at A.S.A.P Spares, it can be quite overwhelming for you to decide which one is best for your car. Do not fret, because we can tell you what type and size of battery or which other spares to use in your Renault.

(Battery) Size Matters

The different types of batteries we sell are varied, but one of the main differences between each is of size. An example would be that all 027 car batteries have a length of 242 mm, a height of 190 mm and a width of 175 mm. 065 car batteries, on the other hand, have a slightly smaller size with a length of 242 mm, height of 175 mm and a width of 175 mm. The size of the battery your Renault needs depends on numerous factors, including where its terminals sit, as well as the size of the available space under the bonnet. Naturally, we do not expect everyone to know the correct size of battery for their car, which is why we are always at hand to best advise you on which battery size is suited for your Renault.

AH and CCA

Once size is out of the way, the main things you need to keep in mind about batteries are cold cranking amps (CCA) and the ampere/hours (AH) rating. AH relates to how long a battery lasts before it needs to be recharged, while the CCA rating refers to how capable a battery is at starting a vehicle during the colder months.

Lead or Calcium?

Lead-acid batteries are capable of starting a vehicle up to 20 000 times before it will need to be replaced. If you are looking for something with a little more longevity, a high-end absorbent or calcium glass mat battery might be the way to go. These will need replacing after about 30 000 to 50 000 starts, offering excellent durability.
