It may be worth noting that the better quality batteries have lower discharge rates so they will last longer. for example, a high quality deep cycle will be less expensive in general because its lifetime with daily use is much more than that of an average car battery.
how much is an average car battery cost?
the cost of new car batteries varies depending on the battery size and what battery it is. the price for a 16-volt, 100 amp hour battery can be between $400-$800, much more than you might think. if you're just asking for an estimate without much other information, that's why it's hard to answer 😉
there are many factors that affect the pricing of a new car battery. the type of element inside the battery is really important when generating electric current so generically priced batteries will have cheaper materials within them which means lower costs in production and distribution. what the usage requirement is also matters in how this impacts its benefits so if you currently have average use needs then your costs may also be closer to average
how much should i pay for a new car battery?
cars require batteries to function, and there are variances in quality of various manufacturers. batteries will either last 1-3 years, so it's wise to purchase a high quality battery that guarantees 2 or 3+ years of life. you can talk to your mechanic about the longevity of specific batteries for your type of car.
some cars have what is called an “integrated” battery meaning they are not external like others on the market today. this means you cannot replace the battery yourself but also get any maintenance done easily without requiring new parts or work done.
