Minimum cranking amps
Your vehicle requires a certain amount of amperage to start, If your battery doesn’t have sufficient amperage to turn over, it won’t start and you’ll be stranded.
Determine the battery cell type
Most car batteries in use are known as a conventional lead-acid battery. They have cells inside the battery made of positive and negative lead plates in battery acid in a case. They are reliable and have been around a very long time, and are the least expensive type of battery. Most cars will operate without a problem with a conventional lead-acid battery.
Select brand and warranty you want
While the quality of the battery may or may not be any better, a recognized name brand will have better customer support in the event you have battery problems while you are under warranty. Pick the grade that is right for you. If you plan on keeping your vehicle for 5 to 10 years, select the higher grade battery that is designed to last longer.
