Extreme temperatures can be very harmful to car batteries. A battery used in temperatures of 77° will generally last around 50% longer than one used in 92° temperatures. The reason is that hot temperatures cause the battery’s electrolytes to overheat and evaporate. Monitoring the battery’s electrolyte level and avoiding driving in extreme temperatures can add to the lifespan of the battery.
