As we approach the midpoint of this snowy, extremely cold winter, it\’s important to evaluate how the vehicles in your fleet are handling the season. In addition to creating icy, pothole-ridden roads, a harsh winter like this one can put your vehicle at a greater risk for a dead battery. This is because falling temperatures diminish the electrical capacity of your vehicle\’s battery while also increasing the amount of power the battery needs to crank the engine (Reference: “Introduction to Batteries and Charging Systems” by Ralph E. Scheidler).

When one of your vehicle\’s is stuck with a dead battery, it doesn\’t just affect the driver. You may face delayed shipments, increased vehicle maintenance costs, and additional downtime caused by service calls. Continue reading Protect Your Fleet from Dead Batteries This Winter With ChargeGuard
