So, how do car batteries actually work?

At Coleman Tyres & Mechanical, we understand the importance of a reliable car battery. It’s the heart of your vehicle, and it powers everything from the starter motor to the lights. But how does this essential component actually work?

A car battery stores energy in a chemical form that converts into electrical power, delivering voltage to the starter. The battery stabilises this voltage output to keep your engine running; without it, your car wouldn’t start, and the electrical components wouldn’t function. Over time, most car batteries’ charge and electrical strength becomes weaker as it loses its ability to function efficiently. This is a normal result of your car battery ageing the longer it’s in use.

This is where our expertise at Coleman Tyres in replacement battery services comes into play. We help you choose the right battery for your vehicle, whether you’re looking for a top-of-the-line new car battery, motorcycle batteries, or even some cheap car batteries that still offer quality performance.

How much does a car battery cost in Brisbane?

In Brisbane, Ipswich, and Queensland in general, the cost of a car battery can vary significantly depending on several factors like the type of battery, the make and model of your vehicle, and whether you’re choosing a standard or premium battery.

On average, however, you can expect to pay:

  • Standard Car Battery: Between $100 and $150.
  • Premium Battery: Ranging from $175 to $450. These offer better performance, especially in cold climates, and usually come with a more extended warranty.
  • Car Battery by Manufacturer: Costs can differ based on the brand, with some common price ranges being $110 to $550, depending on the car brand and model.
  • Type of Vehicle: Costs can vary based on the vehicle type, with hatchbacks being generally cheaper (around $90 to $200) and 4WD vehicles being more expensive (around $180 to $500). Electric vehicle batteries start at around $1,000, but have been decreasing in price over the years.

These prices may or may not include installation fees. It’s always best to double-check with us when you get in touch or drop in for your battery replacement.

Remember: investing in a good quality battery can save costs in the long run by reducing the frequency of necessary battery replacements, and getting your battery installed by experiences mechanics will prevent avoidable installation issues from cropping up in the future.
