Car batteries die after several years of use, and if it's time for you to replace the battery in your vehicle, you might wonder why there's a difference in price between some of the types of batteries. At Volkswagen of Sioux City in Sioux City, IA, we know that you have a lot of questions, and we're here to help you find exactly what will best suit your budget and goals.

There are two types of batteries: lead-acid batteries and lithium-based batteries. Lead-acid batteries are typically less expensive, but they also don't last as long as their lithium-based counterparts.

On the other hand, lithium-based batteries last longer, and they have near a 100% efficiency as opposed to the 85% efficiency that lead-based batteries offer. Lithium batteries also offer 10 times more cycles, making them a much better option in the long run. The one downside to buying a lithium battery is that they are more expensive.
