    Help po, may battery kami Motolite Gold. 2 years na pero minsan lang nagagamit, pinapaandar lang sasakyan every 1 week tapos tinatanggal yung positive side after. .then nasiraan kami alternator pumutok diode ayaw magcharge. .then nung naayos na alternator nagchacjarge na battery, reading ay 13.1 v right after tanggalin yung positive side. .pagkabukas nagdodrop na to 10.5 volts pero nakakastart pa sya, cranking volts at 7.4v. Bakit kaya nasira battery eh minsan lang naman nagagamit yung sasakyan? Any inputs or suggestions sa experts jan?

    How long is it driven when it is driven? Starting the engine ang pinakamalakas maka-drain ng baterya. Kung short trips ka pa lagi, hindi na narerecover yung nawalang charge from starting up the car. So you end up with a battery that is always partially charged. Pag partially charged ang battery, nagkakaroon ng crystallization sa charging plates. In other words, nagde-degrade. Pag hindi na maayos ang plates, hindi na magho-hold ng charge ang baterya mo.

    Covered garage ba? Kung mainit dahil parating bilad sa araw, may negative effect din sa battery.

    Batteries dont normally last that long. Just look at the warranty lengths offered by amarok motolite.

    1. old age.
    2. prolonged state of discharge. madalang gamitin. at kapag ginamit naman, hindi lubos ang pagka-charge bago patayin muli. the battery plates deteriorate faster, if they are kept in long periods of un-fully-charged state.

    and padagdag:
    mal-functioning charging system (i.e., alternator).

    will using a smaller battery size affect your car?

    called motolite and it recommended a smaller size battery for my car (didn;t know until they delivered it).
    when the installer saw it, he said it's ok to install and it wont affect the engine.

    having doubts about this

    Ay speaking Sir Qwerty.. May tanong pala ako about battery.. Last December kasi pinatay ko makina pero iniwan ko naka hazard yung kotse ko.. kasi naka-park ako sa tapat nung isanhg store na wala na sila enough parking for their customers.. so inakyat ko kalahati ng kotse sa may gutter / drainage..
    Nag hazzard ako para iwasan or mapansin ng ibang driver.. Tapos mga 30mins siguro ako dun sa store, 30 mins nagha hazzard kotse.. Nakakasira ba ng battery yun kapag laging gagawin?

    Huwag mo na problemahin yan kahit hinde mo gawin yan, papalitan ko pa rin battery pag nasira since it's consumable part.
