World Charge Your Car Day

October the 5th is world 'Charge Your Car Day', but what does this mean?
Well, it's a day when we should take the chance to make sure our car, campervan, motorhome and boat batteries are topped up and in a good condition.

The AA alone reported a 76% increase in breakdowns after the last lockdown period ended, with two-fifths of callouts being for flat batteries (Green Flag and the RAC saw similar increases). This highlights the importance of establishing a simple routine to manage our batteries and make sure we get the most from them.
Regularly charging of your battery will not only give you peace of mind but could extend its lifespan. It can even prevent battery failure which can potentially damage vehicle electronics and lead to costly repair bills.
