If you’ve put all this time into cleaning your battery, you might be wondering what causes car battery corrosion in the first place! Your battery heats up and cools down naturally as you drive, and releases hydrogen gas as part of the ventilation process! When this hydrogen comes into contact with surrounding materials near the terminals, corrosion is bound to occur. All car batteries need to be replaced eventually, but cleaning and managing corrosion can help to extend your battery’s life.
