Car battery dead? Here’s how much you’ll need to cough up.

Cars powered by internal combustion engines need a spark, apart from fuel and air. But for those who aren’t aware, a car that’s already idling doesn’t actually draw much energy from the battery. Instead, it uses the charge generated by the alternator. The battery is instead more crucial in starting up the car since the alternator at that point hasn’t begun to generate power yet.

This means if your battery is busted, your car won’t start by normal means. You’ll have to push start it, provided that it doesn’t have an automatic transmission. Another option is to use a jump start kit, but that requires you to have another car or car battery to lend you its charge. And lastly, you could also take off your battery and take it along with you to have it charged. As with the other solutions, this isn’t always an option.
