As cars are becoming more advanced we are asking more of our batteries. They are under most starin when we start the car first thing on a cold morning. Once the car is running the battery is normally just being recharged by the alternator. The exception to this is vehicles fitted with start-stop technology. This is where whe you pull up at traffic light sthe car stops the engine to reduce emissions. In this instant the battery is being asked to start the car multiple times a journey. This really reduces the batterys life span. These cars do take a more complex type of bettery (unfortunatly normally more expensive) However they still require replacement more frequently.
