Anyone who’s ever let a car sit for too long will know that a flat battery is a pain when you need to get going, and unfortunately, when we don’t use our cars it’s the most likely thing to go wrong. Because modern cars rely so heavily on electrical components, it’s important to make sure your car has enough juice. There are two ways you can do this.
1) If you have one, a trickle charger is a great way of keeping things charged for extended periods of time, and 2) if you don’t have one it helps to start your car every five days or so and leave it idling for at least ten minutes so it can recharge itself. If you use option two, make sure you do so in a well-ventilated area.
