Avoiding battery failure when inactive

A common question that automotive dealers might be asked by their customers is why their ‘new’ car battery has failed when it has seldom, or never, been used.

In addition to this, consumers are becoming more conscientious about renewable energy.  The good news is that the cost of solar hardware, most especially that of solar panels, is continually coming down, making it more affordable for people to install a solar solution.
