Protect your vehicle's battery with boxes from Sears
Over time, your vehicle's battery endures a lot of stress. Batteries gather rust from corrosive acid or water that seeps out under the hood, which can affect performance and shorten battery life. Any acid that trickles from the battery can also harm other parts within or near the engine block. Installing a battery box is one the best ways to prevent damage to your car's battery and its other components.
Whether it's inside a car, boat or ride-on lawn mower, the battery is always sensitive to the climate and different conditions. You've probably had trouble starting up your lawn mower after it sat dormant during the cold winter or experienced an overheated car battery. A box comes in handy to avoid these situations. Battery boxes not only help prevent excessive corrosion on the connectors and other surrounding parts, but they also protect your battery from both freezing in cold weather and overheating in sweltering temperature.
Since a battery box is equipped at handling all kinds of elements, it's constructed to keep your battery in top condition. However, if you accidentally leave the headlights on or constantly charge electronic devices, this might cause your battery to drain. Whenever you need to charge your battery, all you need to do is pop off the lid and apply any chargers or battery accessories to the terminals. While a battery box is a bit bulky, you should still be able to properly remove the cover and have enough room to put on jumper cable clips in case of emergency.
Boxes are also commonly used for boat and yacht batteries since there is a greater chance of water rusting and damaging the battery. It's important that the terminals, cable ends and battery cables stay in great shape so you are not left stranded at sea with a dead battery. Boxes are used to cover both the trolling and starting battery on your boat, which both need to be in top shape to get peak performance on the water.
Whether you're hoping to ward off corrosion or just want to keep the battery on your boat dry, Sears carries the boxes you need to get the job done. A battery box is perfect to install when you live in an area that experiences plenty of rain or snow. Luckily, we carry anything from the standard plastic boxes to aluminum ones, which are lighter and better for high performance vehicles.
