Opinions vary on how often you should replace your car battery. However, when it's time to, you'll want to replace it quickly, especially since your vehicle can't operate without it. Find a wide selection of car batteries from popular brands at affordable prices when you shop at Walmart.ca.

Finding a Car Battery Replacement

Start by entering the make, model and year of your vehicle, as this can help narrow down your choices. Larger vehicles tend to need larger batteries since it takes more power to turn over a larger engine compared to a smaller one. Modern vehicles with plenty of electronic features require enough power for those components to work properly. 

Check your owner's manual or existing battery to find out its type. Most of the car batteries you'll find in this category are traditional lead acid. These require a bit of maintenance on your part, as they need topping off every now and then with distilled water, since some of it evaporates when the car battery reaches high temperatures during use.

Things to Look for When Evaluating an Automotive Battery

  • Cranking Amps (CA): This is a measure of the battery's starting power. Check your owner's manual or repair manual for guidance on the minimum number of amps you need.
  • Cold Cranking Amps (CCA): If you're familiar with cold Canadian winters, cold cranking amps is an important consideration when selecting a new car battery. This unit is a measure of the cranking amps at freezing temperatures of 0 degrees C (32 degrees F). At temperatures below this threshold, many batteries can only deliver 50-60 percent of their cranking amps, since the chemical process is slowed down when the weather is frigid.
  • Battery terminals: The positive and negative terminals are usually either located on the side of the battery or on top. It's important to keep these areas clean and corrosive-free to ensure best performance and proper charging capability. You can use a battery terminal cleaning spray or mix up your own cleaning agent with baking soda and water.

Car Battery Brands

Shop for lead acid car batteries from well-known brands such as Odyssey with high cold cranking amps that gets your vehicle started on the coldest of mornings. Car battery models from KMG are suitable for autos and your other power equipment, including ATVs, scooters and motorcycles. EverStart provides plenty of standard lead acid options in various group sizes — make sure to match the group size to the one your vehicle uses.

Car Battery Chargers

When your vehicle is going to be sitting for a while, such as over the winter if you don't drive it in the snow, it may be a good idea to keep it on a battery charger or maintainer so that your car battery doesn't lose voltage over time. Another example might be a piece of power equipment that you only drive in the spring and summer — in both of these cases, a car battery charger may be a worthy investment for peace of mind.
