About this deal

Make sure to have your vehicle serviced regularly, so your engine doesn’t become a lumbering deadbeat bum taxing your poor battery to an early grave. One of the best ways to properly protect your EV battery is to find the most effective insulation and shock absorption design.

The temperature on the battery with cover should be about 15-20F lower, more on a hot afternoon drive and especially after a long drive of 25-30 miles or longer.You should drive your car regularly if you want to keep your battery psyched and ready to rumble, because every time the battery drains and you have to jump start your car it reduces your battery life just a little more. Batteries work better in the heat, the battery is one big chemical reaction and heat speeds up those reactions. As electric vehicle technology develops, EV battery design will continue to evolve, meaning proper insulation and protection will depend on the construction of your electric car and the combination of your materials and design. I don't have much experience in automotive, but I don't think batteries are heating to a temperature higher than the running temperature of an engine.

Also, the jacket is made of sturdy material so its clearly going to outlive the car so I will probably use it on any replacement car I get in the future.You can protect it from the outside heat and cold by simply wrapping a small insulation blanket around it. A poorly maintained engine can actually overload and damage a car battery, reducing its overall lifespan.

Agree and bottom line is the car manufacturer spent an extra 25 cents (maybe more) or so when building the vehicle to put it there, so there is a reason or they would not have. The chemical reactions happening in the battery do produce some heat, whether it's enough to be worth considering I don't know. Your story about “nursing a weak battery” reminded me of a time years ago when I nursed a battery on my 1968 Ford.Now this could be due to the tracker I have fitted draining it but I doubt it, I'll do some drain current tests before taking the plunge. Big problems with the positive terminal cable which was the length of the car and always managed to grow a battery 'fungus' on the positive terminal. All damaged goods must be reported to us on the day of receipt so that we can claim against the courier.
