If you replace your batteries on time, you shouldn't experience any trouble. Checking the voltage lets you know if something goes wrong. Then again, extreme hot and cold temperatures could cause problems for even the best battery. Many people wonder why the winter cold and the summer heat cause troubles. The reasons aren't magical ones.

The capacity in a battery outright shrinks in cold weather. When you turn the ignition and draw power from the battery to the accessories and the starter, there isn't as much power as you want. So, the battery dies. In hot summer months, overcharging can kill the battery. Heat also creates problems that can harm the battery.

Some precautionary steps are worth taking. Buy a high-quality battery, and don't keep an old one past the point of necessary replacement.
