FAQs

Lawn mower batteries come in a variety of sizes, capacity, voltage and technology. Most common are Maintenance Free lead acid batteries but some models also come with accessible caps. When choosing a new lawn mower battery, use the original battery specifications as a reference or chat to the experts at R&J Batteries.

Lawn mower batteries can last up to 5 years with the proper care however as each person’s battery is used and stored in different environments this can affect overall battery life. R&J Batteries include a 12 month warranty against manufacturing defects with all of the lawn mower batteries in their range.

If the lawn mower struggles to start, this could be a sign of a flat or dead battery. Check the terminals for corrosion and also check for damage to the battery casing. Check the main cables and connections to ensure they are tight and corrosion free. You can bring your lawn mower battery into an R&J Batteries store for a free battery test where we can determine whether the battery needs replacing, or just needs a good charge.

If a battery continually fails to start your lawn mower, even after charging, it could be due to a fault within the battery. Batteries only have a limited lifespan as they will gradually deteriorate over time. Being stored and operated in harsh conditions like extreme heat can shorten battery service life. Check the battery for corrosion or damage first, then bring the battery into your closest R&J Batteries for a free test.

If your mower has a 12V electrical system, you can jump start it using your car battery, or even better using a 12V jump pack.  The jump pack is a safer and more portable option.  You should follow the same rules as when you are jump starting a car to ensure the jump start is successful.

Always charge your lawn mower before and after putting into storage for the off season. A battery will discharge slowly while not in use and may discharge too low to recover from. If you use your ride on mower quite often a monthly charge will keep the battery in good health.

A great way to maximise battery life is to purchase a maintenance charger which will charge and maintain your lawnmower battery when not in use.
