A few warning signs that your battery needs to be checked:
- Your car is slow to start
- Using electrical components of your vehicle ( ie: the radio or CD player ) while the car isn’t running, causes the battery to go flat quickly.
- There’s a funny smell, almost like rotten eggs.

Many people don’t realise batteries need to be looked after, and as a result they are probably the most neglected component of a vehicle. Simple things like keeping the terminals clean, to making sure it isn’t bouncing around in its casing, will help you get a longer life out of your car battery.
Our Battery Service
Here at Auto Super Shoppes, we look after you by stocking only the highest quality batteries. We know that cheap car batteries are inevitably going to create problems that are inconvenient and troublesome. Our batteries contain more lead plates, which conduct the charge, ensuring a longer lifespan. We stand by our products and parts in the knowledge that we are looking after your best interests in the long run.
And we put our money where our mouth is! Every car battery we sell comes with a warranty! That’s the kind of quality, reliability and commitment you only find with Auto Super Shoppes. It’s not just our mechanics that are the best in the business, but our parts too! And speaking of Mechanics, if you want to know more about car batteries, or which one is best suited to your vehicle and needs, then please pop in and have a chat. Our experienced, knowledgeable and professional staff will be more than happy to help you. We can give technical assistance on buying the correct battery and explain the best way to look after it.
If you are looking to buy a new car and you are unsure about the state of the car battery, we provide a free battery inspection service. Our digital car battery tester will quickly give you a computerised printout to look at which will help you to clearly see what state your car battery is in.

If your battery is of the lead-acid variety, you need to monitor the water level regularly. During each charging cycle, water is lost via electrolysis and needs to be replaced with distilled water ( not straight from the tap ) to keep working.
