Somora Motor Parts advises Motor Factor to stock up on batteries

Somora Motor Parts is advising Motor Factors to stock up on automotive batteries ahead of the weekend with Met Éireann forecasting that the weather is set to turn extremely cold across Ireland.

As the weekend approaches, average temperatures are likely to fall and there is an 80 probability of severe cold weather, icy conditions and snow, according to Met Éireann.

Somora Motor Parts says that battery demands will be much higher than normal and is recommending that Motor Factors get in their order an of Yuasa automotive batteries ahead of the weekend.

Cold temperatures directly affect the performance of all car batteries, in fact at 0°C a battery will lose about 30 per cent of its cranking performance… this is why there are more battery failures during cold weather.
