Tech Tip: Relationship Between Alternator and Batteries

The vehicle charging system is comprised of three components: the alternator, the batteries and the cables that connect them all together. Each of these plays an important role in creating a healthy charging system. And how well one component performs is dependent on the strength of the other components. 

In our latest Tech Tip video, we examine the relationship between the alternator and the batteries. Watch our tech tip video to learn more about:
