Lexus RX450H (2010-2015) Hybrid Battery
If you want to own a hybrid car, then you must have thought about where to get the batteries from. Installing new hybrid batteries can be highly expensive that might exceed your budget limit. Aloy Hybrid understands this, and so they provide guaranteed quality remanufactured Lexus RX450H hybrid battery that is designed to last for many years and don’t break your budget.
Unlike any other electric vehicle that needs an external source of electric power to recharge an exhausted battery, a Lexus RX450H hybrid battery gets recharged with the electricity generated as the engine operates the vehicle. There is only a need for fuel supply and no electric power source is required to charge a Lexus battery. These batteries are built to last for many years and can be recharged thousands of times when functioning properly. The batteries are also recyclable.
Signs that You Need to Replace Your Old Lexus Battery
If you are a new owner of a hybrid car, you may need to understand the vital signs that your car battery needs attention. A Lexus RX450H hybrid battery shows different indications than those of conventional car batteries. These signs include:
- Diminished Fuel Economy
When you’re not getting the gas mileage as expected, your old Lexus battery is likely failing. The main purpose of a Lexus RX450H hybrid battery is to provide energy to run your vehicle. As the battery starts to go, your car begins to rely on the gas combustion engine as its only power source. When you need to fill up your hybrid car’s fuel tank more frequently, then it’s a sure sign that the battery is dying.
- The Battery Running Out of Charge Fast
Even when your vehicle is charged overnight and you notice that your car has a low battery in the morning, then it’s an indication that your Lexus RX450H hybrid battery needs an attention of a mechanic.
- Erratic Charge
Are you noticing a fluctuation in the state of charge of your car battery? The display can also show that your existing Lexus RX450H hybrid battery is completely charged in one moment and extremely low in another. Your car’s battery might be unable to hold a charge or could be overcharging that needs immediate attention whether the battery needs to be replaced or not.
- The Internal Combustion Engine Operates More than Expected
If your car’s internal combustion system runs more than it should or gives up at unexpected times, then it’s telling something. You need to get your existing Lexus RX450H hybrid battery checked soon.
- Noisy Engine
When a hybrid car battery gets hot, it gives an alert to the electric fan that it needs to cool down. Running a very hot battery may harm it and also its other parts.
Extending the Life of the Lexus Battery
The lifespan of your Lexus RX450H hybrid battery completely depends on your driving habits, the size of the battery, and the weather conditions of the place you drive most often. Even when your battery is functioning optimally doesn’t mean that it is in a sound state. You’ll need to get your battery checked thoroughly often by an expert mechanic to ensure that it is in a good condition. Here are some important tips to prolong the life of a Lexus RX450H hybrid battery.
