How Many Different Types of Car Battery are there?

January 27, 2012

The types of car battery you will find today are still based on a technology that has been around for much longer than a century. The standard lead-acid battery. This is the battery you are used to finding in the battery well of your vehicle, and it usually runs anywhere from 45 to 65 cold cranking hours. Another type of common car battery, although you don't have to use it as such, is the deep cycle or marine cycle battery, that allows you to run your vehicle for long periods without recharging the battery. And, given the move toward hybrid cars, you are now finding Nickel-Metal Hydride battery racks underneath your hybrid car, or lithium-ion batteries. To put it into numbers, there are four major types of batteries used in cars and trucks today.
