Looking for the average car batteries prices so you can budget for a new one? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer.

Car battery prices vary depending on your requirements, and with a wealth of types available on the market, it can be hard to know what’s best price on car batteries. The key is to determine the type of battery you need. One of the two ways batteries are typically rated is by their cold cranking amps. Larger or diesel engines need more cranking power, which is what’s required initially to kickstart the engine. So often, the bigger the car, the more the car battery cost. Then, there’s durability. At the lower end of the range are cheaper lead acid batteries. But calcium batteries offer more starts before they need replacing, and silver calcium ones are guaranteed for even longer. These are both proportionately more expensive, though do have a longer lifespan.

However, if you own a high-performance car with many electronic features, the cost of car battery options will increase as you’ll want an absorbent glass mat (AGM) or advanced flooded battery (AFM), which are better equipped to meet the demands placed on them.
