How Does a Car Battery Work?

It’s easy to take your BMW battery for granted, but without it you wouldn’t be able to start your vehicle. How does a car battery work? Here are the basics:

  • Car batteries are designed to convert chemical energy into electrical energy
  • Most gas and diesel car batteries contain six cells, each of which can produce around two volts of energy, so that combined they produce 12 volts total. 
  • Each of the cells features two plates, one made from lead and the other from lead dioxide. 
  • When you switch the ignition on in your vehicle, the plates are submerged in sulphuric acid which acts as a catalyst triggering a chemical reaction that produces electrons which in turn generate electricity
  • The electricity is sent to the starter motor which turns the engine over. 
  • At the same time, the battery supplies electricity to the spark plugs which ignite the air/gas mixture in the engine combustion cylinders.

After the car has started, the alternator takes over from the battery, supplying the electrical power needed to run the electrical systems in your vehicle while keeping the battery charged.
