Why does my Jaguar say low battery?
Well, to put it simply, your Jaguar is low because you haven’t charged it yet. Having an electric car is cool and all but it’s also a hassle if your battery runs out in the middle of the road. In order to preserve your battery life and keep it in pristine conditions, you must avoid doing these:
- Driving in Extreme Temperatures
More heat in the vicinity of your battery can cause it to lose power very quickly and can shorten your battery’s lifespan. Moreover, cold temperatures can also cause your battery to quickly drain. In some cases, lead sulfate crystals could form on the battery’s surface. This can happen if you leave your car in a very cold place for an extended period.
- Trickle Charging your Jaguar
Admit it, you have once let your phone charge to 100% while you were asleep. It can feel good to wake up to a fully charged phone, but in the long run this can damage your battery. Now, this same concept applies to your Jaguar’s battery. It’s understandable to not feel comfortable when your Jaguar is at zero charge. This act is called “trickle charging”. When you overcharge your battery, it creates excessive heat. This can reduce your battery’s lifespan and can make your Jaguar lose power faster.
When you get home after a long and tiring day, you might forget to turn your Jaguar’s lights off. It is a mistake that you seldomly make. Though it doesn’t happen frequently, you should be aware that if you do this habitually, this may lead to bad battery conditions. So, before you head inside your warm home, make sure nothing in your Jaguar is in use.
