With the current state of the economy, there have been an increase in the price of almost everything, what is the current price for Car batteries?
 
There are different types of car batteries in Nigeria we have Diamond,Everstart, Solite.
Hankook. etc. They comes with their prices which a lot of times range from $100- $500 which depends on the type you are buying abd where you are buying from.
 
We have three grades of car battery in my country. The standard car battery which costs $37. We have the maintenance free car batteries. And they cost $50. The premium grade car batteries are sold at $70. And each higher grade is better than the other in durability.
 
Batteries come in different capacities and quantities. As it stands today, the price of quality and standard battery can range form $80 -$400. Am not knowledgeable enough about batteries and their quality range but the price difference showed that the qualities varies.
 
Most cars in my own country now use Lithium Ion battery. They are very efficient and last long but they don't come at a cheap. They cost $300 in my country. When you compare that to the lead acid battery that costs $80, you would understand the difference. But the Lithium Ion car battery gives you peace of mind.
 
The Absorbed Glass Mat batteries are the most used car batteries in my part of the world. They cost $220 as at my last replacement. Gel batteries are few and far apart in my country because they are expensive at $500 for most car owners to afford.
 
There are 6 different types of battery that my Toyota Highlander 2019 model makes use of. Their prices ranges from around $214.99 to $295.99. So, everything depends on which brand that you want to make use of. Generally, the kind of car that you're driving determines what kind of battery it's going to use and its cost.
 
The last time I checked, it was Php 4,000. It could be more, especially if the car battery is from a well-known manufacturer. Furthermore, the capacity plays an important part in deciding the price of a car battery.

The most important thing I look out for whenever I am interested in buying a new car battery for my car is to make sure that it is what is going to last for a long time and is not going to die on me suddenly so that I will not be wasting my money unnecessarily.
 
If you are looking at durability when buying car batteries, you would really have to spend money and buy a car battery with a very high CCA rating. It is the CCA rating that shows the ability of the car battery to spark your engine during cold weathers. Sparking your engine on those chilly mornings take so much power from your car battery and a higher CCA indicates that it has enough power for those cold mornings.

It depends on the weather of the place, some places have hot weather most days of the year so this problem could not be even taken into consideration.
 
It is in the range of $35 to 200 dollars. It depends on the grade and the manufacturer..What is mostly purchased is around $50.
 
It depends on the brand and the quality. There are new car batteries and also used car batteries; if you can't afford the new one, you can buy the used one, or you can reuse the old one that you have, but the new one costs between 9000 ETB and 13,000 ETB, which is $163 to $365, and yeah, it's a bit expensive.
 
Car batteries for gasoline cars have just a single role of starting the car. A lead acid battery of 12 volts is enough to do the job and it would cost nothing more than $70.
 
With the current rate of increase in all commodities my country, it is expected that there will also be an increase in the price of car batteries .

I got a new car battery in Dec and it was high compared to the price some 2-3 years ago
 
The cost of a car battery vary depending on several factors and this includes the type , brand and the specification of the battery in question. It also has a lot to do with the make and the model of the vehicle as well.
