The Alternator Gives Your Battery A Daily Recharge

Your phone battery or your laptop battery may only last a day or two at most without you having to charge it up. So how does your car battery stay charged for so long without you plugging it in? That is why we here at Sheehy Nissan of Waldorf want to be sure that you know the basics of your vehicle's alternator. The alternator is the reason your battery stays charged. As you drive the alternator generates electricity which is used to keep the car battery at full charge. Without it, the battery would quickly run out of power and your car wouldn't start. An alternator typically lasts around 100,000 miles or roughly around 7 years, whichever should come first.
