How Do Car Batteries Work?
- A car battery is an energy storage device that produces electricity as a result of a chemical reaction
- The starter motor, ignition system, and fuel system are all operated through the stored electrical energy within the battery.
- The alternator supplies the electricity needed to keep the engine running, along with all of the vehicle’s systems. It also charges the battery to replace the energy used to start the car initially.
Marshall is committed to ensuring that you have a reliable car battery to maintain the performance of your vehicle. You can view our quality range of batteries online.

How Long Should A Car Battery Last?

Frequency of Use
