Do you suspect your vehicle battery is about to die? Knowing what type of battery to buy can be daunting with so many options available. We'll help break it down for you.
WHAT ARE BATTERY GROUP SIZES?
The Battery Council International (BCI) has created designations known as group sizes that provide a battery's exact physical dimensions. They provide the length, width, and height in both inches and millimeters. Before you start researching other characteristics like the cold cranking amp (CCA) rating and terminal position, it's good to start by consulting a battery size chart.
After all, chances are you're not dealing with your grandfather's land yacht that had so much room under the hood you could climb in and take a nap. Modern vehicles cram more technology into a more compact space—get the wrong sized battery and installation will feel like trying to fit a square block in a round hole.
