A car battery is a rechargeable device that provides electrical energy to power the starter motor and the ignition system of a vehicle. It is typically a lead-acid battery, which consists of a series of cells containing lead plates immersed in an electrolyte solution of sulfuric acid and water. When the battery is charged, a chemical reaction between the lead plates and the electrolyte produces electrical energy that is stored in the battery.

When the car is started, the battery supplies the electrical energy required by the starter motor to turn over the engine. Once the engine is running, the alternator takes over the job of supplying electrical energy to the car's systems and recharges the battery.

Car batteries can last anywhere from three to six years, depending on the usage and maintenance of the battery. It is important to regularly check and maintain the battery to ensure it is functioning properly and avoid getting stranded with a dead battery.
