A significant increase in battery service life has taken place in recent years due to major improvements in the vehicle electrical power supply system. Factors contributing to the better battery service life are outlined in this paper. These include battery design improvements, alternator systems, lower voltage regulator settings, battery installation improvements, and charging system wiring changes. Battery service life with present alternator systems is compared to service life obtained with earlier battery designs on generator equipped cars.
