The battery typically installed in vehicles in the United States today is designed to perform in a fairly broad range of ambient temperatures. With that said, more extreme temperatures at both ends of the spectrum have the potential to impact significantly battery performance.

When the temperature drops below freezing, a car battery can experience a performance drop of 20%. If the temperature falls below -22 degrees Fahrenheit, battery performance can be off by as much as 50%. If outside temperatures rise to 122 degrees Fahrenheit, battery performance can drop by 12%. Not only do extreme temperatures impair performance they also result in a shorter life for a battery.
