As a hybrid car owner, you are well aware of all their benefits. But, they do have some potential drawbacks - specifically when it comes to the deterioration battery’s longevity, power, and gas mileage over time. Hoffman Tire Pros offers hybrid battery conditioning: a revolutionary technology that is changing the hybrid industry as we know it.
Battery conditioning process restores battery performance up to 95% of original manufacturers’ specifications – and saves you money – and our landfills.
The car dealership will typically tell you to replace the battery if you experience the symptoms of battery deterioration. At an average of $4,000- $4,500, this is a significant investment. With battery conditioning, you save up to 70% of that cost.
A motivating factor for most hybrid vehicle owners in purchasing their car in the first place was to help the environment. Sadly, many of today’s old replaced hybrid batteries are being thrown away into our landfills. By conditioning your battery, you’ll not only be saving significant money, but you’ll also be eliminating this unfortunate waste.Learn More
