The best car battery for cold weather should dependably operate in extremely cold environments. The last thing you’ll want to do on a freezing, ice-cold morning is to jumpstart your car.

To avoid this inconvenience, let’s go over what’s important for a battery.

When making your battery purchase, look for the label that identifies its cold-cranking amps — this determines how well the battery performs in cold climates.

Cold-cranking amps are a motor industry standard that determines how much current a 12-volt battery (e.g., your car battery) can deliver for 30 seconds at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. For cold climates, higher values are better.

A rule of thumb says a vehicle’s battery should have a cold-cranking amps (CCA) rating equal to or greater than engine displacement in cubic inches. A battery with a 280 CCA rating would be more than adequate for a 135 cubic inch four-cylinder engine but not big enough for a 350 cubic inch V8.
