If you own a car, RV, ATV, golf cart, or virtually any other type of vehicle, you might be wondering how to avoid wasting the electricity that’s stored in your battery. Luckily, there are some ways to ensure that you do not use up the stored energy too quickly. Here are a few tips that can help you avoid wasting electricity:
1. Short rides can waste your battery’s energy
Taking short rides will result in frequent stopping and starting. You’ll use a significant amount of energy each time that you start your engine. While not everyone can avoid short rides entirely, it’s best to plan your outings in a way that avoids excessively short rides if possible.
2. Avoid idling in accessory mode
If you are running your car in accessory mode, all of the electricity is coming from your battery. While there may be occasions when you need to do this for a short period of time, it’s best to avoid accessory mode as much as possible. Turning on the engine and parking your vehicle is a better way to run onboard electronics than resorting to accessory mode.
3. Make sure that you don’t leave the lights on
You’ve probably had the experience of accidentally leaving lights on in your vehicle and finding that the battery ran down to the point that you could no longer start your car. Not only do these incidents put a strain on the battery temporarily, but they can also contribute to a reduced lifespan of your battery. So, you should always double-check to make sure that all lights are off before you leave your parked car.
